New Red Priestess Teased In Game Of Thrones S6 Script Leak

Bronn's still not on the Iron Throne

Consider this your final warning for spoilers


Jon Snow's corpse has barely gone cold and the spoilers for Games of Thrones' sixth season have begun rolling in.

Fan site Watchers on the Wall have somehow discovered details of an intriguing new character who we can only describe as a new Melisandre.

Further information on the character has been divulged via a leaked audition clip – since taken down – which shows British newcomer Tehmina Sunny reading for the part of a red priestess named Kinvara.

In the Meereen-set scene, Kinvara is talking about Daenerys with Tyrion and Varys – the latter of whose little birds seem to have fed him news of Stannis' death in Winterfell. 

You can read the transcript below.


Kinvara: 'Her dragons are fire made flesh. A gift from the Lord of Light. But you've heard all of this before, haven't you? On the Long Bridge of Volantis? The dragons purify nonbelievers by the thousands, burning their sins and flesh away.'

Tyrion/Varys: 'Ideally, we'd avoid purifying many non-believers. The Mother of the Dragon has followers from many different faiths.'

Kinvara: 'You want your queen to be worshiped and obeyed. And while she's gone, you want her advisors to be worshiped and obeyed.'

Tyrion: 'I'd settle for obeyed.'

Kinvara: 'I will summon mummers and appoint priests. They will spread the word. Daenerys has been sent to lead the people against the darkness.. for this war, and the Great War yet to come.'

Varys: 'That sounds excellent. A man named Stannis Baratheon was appointed as the Chosen One by one of your priestesses. He too had a glorious destiny. He attacked King's Landing, and was soundly defeated by the man standing beside me. Last I heard, he'd been defeated again. This time at Winterfell.. and this time for good.'


Obviously, we can't verify if any of this is true so we suggest watching the season six premiere to see for yourself.

You've only ten months to wait.
