Aimee Richardson (born 29 December 1997) is an actress who portrayed Myrcella Baratheon in Season 1 and Season 2 of Game of Thrones. She is from Bangor, Northern Ireland.
Her acting career started with a role in the 2008 film, Miss Conception. She has also starred in The Sparticle Mystery (2015), Storyland (2016), and My Mother and Other Strangers (2016). In the pilot episode, Myrcella was a non-speaking role, and Aimee Richardson was not originally intended to be permanently cast as Myrcella: no casting decision had been made yet, and she was simply a stand-in for the auditions involving other cast members, such as Cersei and Jaime. However, the TV series creators discovered that they enjoyed Richardson's strong acting ability for her age, so they decided to officially cast her as Myrcella. She initially appeared as a guest star in the first season and returned in this role for the second season.
The day after Joffrey was killed in the Season 4 episode \\"The Lion and the Rose\\", Richardson posted a video on her Vine account: it consisted of the last few seconds of Joffrey's poisoning, followed by video of Richardson (with mock solemnity) crowning herself with a tiara, and then announcing \\"I'm ready\\" - celebrating that this means Myrcella is now a massive step closer to sitting on the Iron Throne herself. The tiara was actually worn by Aimee's mother on her wedding day.
At the San Diego Comic-Con 2014 Game of Thrones panel the official announcement of new cast members for the upcoming season revealed that after a two-year absence by the character, the older Myrcella who returns in Season 5 would be recast. Nell Tiger Free replaced Aimee Richardson in the role. The reasons for the recast were never revealed.
On June 28th, three days after the recasting announcement, Richardson responded by posting a new video clip on her Vine account, showing her sitting on the side of the road as if she was a beggar, but wearing her princess tiara, while holding a sign saying \\"Princess for hire\\". The title of the video was, \\"Well, this is embarrassing\\".
\\"I'm a little girl, and I'm getting to dress up as a princess - and get paid for it! It's mental!\\" - In response to the question, \\"What is your impression of Myrcella's costumes?\\" \\"I'm a very big Audrey Hepburn fan, Breakfast at Tiffany's is my favorite movie in the world. And on my wall behind my bed I have lots of my favorite quotes, and I've got a lot of Audrey Hepburn. And there's one of hers where she said, 'The most important thing is to enjoy yourself, to be happy, that's all that matters.' - and I just think that's a really nice way of living. Not trying to please everyone else, just be happy.\\" \\"I love evil characters too, in drama school I've played a few evil characters, and they are SO much fun. You just get to be horrible all day! It's like letting out every little thing inside you you've ever kept in, and all of a sudden you're just like \\"A HATE YOU ALL!\\" - So Cersei! Cersei, basically.\\" \\"I had this scene when I was being sent off to Dorne, and I was in my little boat, I had to cry during that. Which, well that was my last day of filming for Season 2, I knew I wasn't coming back for a while. So I was already feeling emotional about that, and I then I just kind of thought about what she [Myrcella] would be feeling. And she wasn't going to see her family for, maybe, years. And then I kind of though, 'I'm not going to see them for years!' - so it was pretty easy to get the tears.\\"
