REJECTION IS HARD. And no one knows it better than people in the acting profession.

Northern Irish actress Aimee Richardson originally played Cersei’s daughter Myrcella Baratheon in Game of Thrones, but her character hasn’t appeared since season 2.

At Comic Con this weekend it was announced that Myrcella would be returning to the show, but Richardson would be replaced with English actress Nell Tiger Free.

Richardson responded to the news in the most 2014 way imaginable, proving herself to be a rather excellent sport in the process.


She also invited the potential Arianne Martell (an important character from the books who was left out of the series) to join her.

You go girl.
