Game of Thrones’ Melisandre star looks VERY different in new show after HBO finale
Warning: This story contains spoilers for Game of Thrones season eight, episode six, The Iron Throne.
Game of Thrones ended last night and fans finally discovered who would be sitting as ruler of Westeros.
While fans mourn the loss of their favourite show, it’s business as usual for the cast and it seems some of them have moved on to new shows already.
One star in particular appears world’s away from her role of Melisandre: Carice Van Houten.
The 42-year-old star has landed a role in a brand new drama which will air on Sky One in Autumn, Temple.
Last night, a trailer for the show aired and sees Carice star as medical researcher, Anna, who life is entangled with that of Daniel Milton’s (played by Mark Strong).
Daniel struggles to come to terms with the fact his wife could be about to die after normal medicine has failed her.
A doctor himself, he decides to go underground, quite literally, to set up a rogue facility with Lee (Daniel Mays) beneath Temple station.
However, Daniel finds himself with more adversity than he planned for as he struggles to cope with the ethical complications of what he is planning.
But how far will Daniel go for love? And can he cure his wife?
Carice starred as Melisandre in Game of Thrones for all eight seasons, but sadly died in episode three.
While on the HBO show, she sported a red mane, which became iconic for her character as the Red Priestess.
In Temple, the actress has brown hair and is wearing decidedly more clothes.
Meanwhile on Game of Thrones, it seemed some weren’t happy with the way the show concluded.
With only one major death, perhaps many expected more, and a lot were fuming with the pacing of the last ever episode.
Flocking to Twitter, one said: “Heartbroken and bitterly disappointed sums up my entire reaction to #GOT season eight.”
Another added: “It is complicated to describe the final episode, but thank you #GameOfThrones however it’s so disappointed.”
A third shared: “#GameOfThrones is know for being a show where no one is safe. Literally everyone’s ending was safe and happy. This is not what made the show what it is. Disappointed.”
Elsewhere, others spotted a pretty big blunder in a crucial Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) scene.
Game of Thrones is available to watch on Sky Go and NOW TV. Temple will air on Sky One and NOW TV in Autumn.
