Two young British actresses join Series 5 of Game of Thrones

14 year old Nell Tiger Free (represented by Independent Talent) has joined the cast of Game of Thrones, to play Myrcella Baratheon. Myrcella Baratheon is the child of Cersei Lannister and the late King Robert Baratheon, though in truth her father is Cersei’s own brother, Jaime Lannister. In the second series she was shipped off to be the guest and ward of Prince Doran, betrothed to his son, and hasn't been seen since, but things are set to change with the death of Oberyn Martell, the Prince’s brother.

Nell is best known for her starring role as Chloe in the BBC adaptation of Mr. Stink.

In Series 4, Myrcella's brother Tommen was also recast, the role going from Callum Wharry to Dean Charles-Chapman, star of CBBC's The Revolting World of Stanley Brown.

Jessica Henwick (represented by Tavistock Wood Management) joins the cast playing Nymeria (“Nym”) Sand, the second eldest of the late Prince Oberyn’s bastard daughters. Her mother was an Eastern noblewoman who brought Nym up to be cultured, graceful and deadly with a whip. Jessica starred as Bo in the CBBC series Spirit Warriors, and was a series regular Amy Lang in the third series of BBC legal drama Silk.
