Game Of Thrones Actress Carice Van Houten Talks About Her Character In Most Recent Episode [SPOILERS]

At this point we are closer to episode 4, than we are the last episode of Game of Thrones, The Long Night. So we are probably nearing the point where to try and hide spoilers is pointless. If you haven’t seen the episode yet and are trying to avoid spoilers, then clicking on this article seems a little masochistic. But we will carry on with SPOILER alerts for The Long Night until we get to Episode 4.

The latest episode of Game of Thrones saw the ending to several long time characters on the show, we lost two lead characters of the show in Theon Greyjoy and Jorah Mormont. We also lost the likes of Lyanna Mormont (not a good week for the Mormont’s), Dolorous Edd, Beric Dondarrion, and Melisandre, the Red Witch. Melisandre like all the other characters ended on a high note as they died defending the living from the dead, though Melisandre was not killed by any wights or White Walkers. Instead, Melisandre seemed to have foreseen that her purpose was fulfilled and that she had done what was required of her for the Lord of Light.

I won’t go over everything that she did to help the living in this episode (again), but by the end she seemed to have decided she had done all she could in service of her God and removed the necklace which keeps her young and reverted back to the wrinkled and ancient old lady she really was and passed on. Davos Seaworth who had vowed to kill Melisandre if he ever saw her again, was left watching as she walked out on her onw and died in the snow. It’s also interesting that if Jon and Davos had decided to execute Melisandre back in Season 6, then she wouldn’t have been there to help them in this episode, Makes you wonder whether Daenerys would have let her walk away doesn’t it?

Collider caught up with actress Carice Van Houton who played Melisandre until very recently on the show. She talked a little about what it was like to film scenes with actors she hadn’t worked with yet like Ian Glen who plays the also now deceased Jorah Mormont.

“Yes, that was great. When you see the show over the years, you become a fan yourself. How can you not?” the actress told Collider. “And then to work with them, I sort of got almost a bit star struck. It’s funny because most of them I didn’t really see [while filming over the years]. Not even at premieres. Sometimes we missed each other. So all of sudden it’s like, ‘Ah! I’m having a scene with Ser Jorah!'”

Van Houton also told the outlet about the message she was sent by actor Liam Cunningham who plays Davos, probably the actor she worked most with over the years on the show.

“I’m definitely going to miss that. … He was one of the first people that sent me a message actually, after the show aired and he said, ‘Great performance. Sorry I didn’t get to kill you,’ I just laughed. I just thought it was so typical for him to write that. I couldn’t have been more lucky with him as a co-actor all those years.”

Van Houton certainly made a huge impact in her years on Game of Thrones despite being a secondary character and absent for big stretches of the show. Though her character did some awful things for all the wrong reasons, I am happy she at least got to fulfil her part, and have her character die after helping out the living. I’ll miss that mysterious music that they’d use whenever Melisandre would say something cryptic or do something magical.

What did you think of Melisandre’s end and Van Houton’s performance in the role over all these years? Beware the comments section below, it is dark and full of terrors, just like the last episode was dark and full or errors (ouch).
