Former 'Game of Thrones' actress Aimee Richardson jokes about replacement

By Kyle Johnson,

Aimee Richardson previously played Myrcella Baratheon, but was replaced for the upcoming fifth season and took to social media to make light of the unfortunate situation.

Myrcella is the second daughter of Cersei Lannister, played by Lena Headey (right), and Richardson previously played her, but was replaced by Nell Tiger Free just as the character is set to actually get screen time.

Surely disappointed, Richardson decided to humorously comment on the situation by taking to Vine. In the video, the young actress is shown sitting on the sidewalk with a tiara on her head and holding up a sign saying, "Princess for hire."

Mashable notes she also took to Twitter to joke about the likelihood that another princess was written out. "If any potential Ariennes [Martell] want to come and sit on the street you can email me at aimee@rejectedprincesses.com."

Along with the recasting of Myrcella, GoT producers announced at Comic-Con that much of the late Prince Obyern's family also was set to appear in the fifth season.
