Game of Thrones actress Aimee Richardson begs for 'other princess work' after Myrcella Baratheon part is recast

"Well this is embarassing," Richardson wrote on Vine

Game of Thrones actress Aimee Richardson has posted a Vine of herself begging with  'Princess for hire' sign after her part of Myrcella Baratheon was recast.

*Spoilers if you're mega behind*

You might be forgiven for asking "Myrcella who?" given that the middle Baratheon child between Joffrey and Tommen hasn’t been on screen since season two, when she was shipped off to Dorne to bolster the Lannister alliance.

But following the King's death in season 4, Myrcella is set to make a comeback in 5, with Richardson posting this hopeful Vine after the Purple Wedding aired:

It was announced at Comic-Con however that Nell Tiger Free will take over as the princes, leading Richardson to follow up with this Vine, titled 'Well this is embarrassing":

Given the slew of Medieval low fantasy programming that has been commissioned in the wake of Game of Thrones' success though, princess work shouldn't be hard to find.

In other GoT news, actress Maisie Williams criticised "snobby" George RR Martin book fans this week with regards to the whole book vs HBO show spoiler debate.

"I’m so sick of going on the internet and seeing all the book readers being snobby, spoiling it for other people, then saying, ‘Well, it’s not a spoiler. The books have been out for years’,” she told TV Line.

"Like, couldn’t you just stop being mad for a second and let other people enjoy the show?"
