GoT star hints at being axed from show

GAME of Thrones star Ellie Kendrick has dropped a major clue that her character won't be returning to the hit series for it's final season.

The actress, who plays Meera, suggested she wasn't going to appear in season eight - silencing speculation she was set to be involved in a huge plot twist, reports The Sun.

Kendrick, 27, played feisty Meera who helped Bran Stark in his quest for the Three-Eyed Raven.

As the last series has already begun production - it could mean has been dropped from the cast.

She told Metro: "I wait for the phone to ring and then I find out, but it hasn't rung so I don't know.

"I'll find out whether I am or not at some point, but for now I haven't been notified so I'm yet to discover."

And Kendrick doubts Meera and Bran, played by Isaac Hempsted Wright, will ever be reunited after saying goodbye.

She said: "It was a sad day to say farewell to young Isaac - not so young now and also very tall, which means he was so difficult to put on the sled, which I actually did, although he's a lot taller than me.

Meera had previously been the focus of a fan theory which suggested she may have an even bigger role in the show's eighth and final series.

Online gossip hinted that she was going to be unveiled as Jon Snow's secret twin sister, who has a claim to the Iron Throne due to his newly-discovered royal parentage.

Jon is played by British actor Kit Harington.
