Melanie Liburd (The Grinder, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) has been cast as a Red Priestess of R’hllor in HBO’s Game of Thrones, Deadline reports.
The British actress will join the cast in Season 6 as another servant of the God of Light. It should be noted that she is playing a Red Priestess, not the Red Priestess, meaning she is not replacing Carice Van Houten’s recurring character.
Game of Thrones returns in 2016.
