Liburd Joins “Thrones” As A Red Priestess

Rising Brit actress Melanie Liburd (“Strike Back,” “The Grinder”) has been cast as the Red Priestess in HBO’s big-budget fantasy series “Game Of Thrones” for its sixth season.

Despite the name, it has been indicated that Melanie is NOT replacing Carice Van Houten in the role of Melisandre. Rather, Liburd is playing a new Red Woman who is based in Mereen.

“Game Of Thrones” is currently filming across multiple locations around Europe ahead of a second-quarter airing next year.
