Meera Reed Doesn't Think She'll Return To Game Of Thrones

As we get closer to the final episode of Game of Thrones—only six left!—we'll be seeing more and more final appearances for our favorite characters in the series. We'll have the last Tyrion scene, the last Bronn scene, the final Arya kill. But some characters in the sprawling cast may have already made their final appearances, as it's started to be revealed who hasn't been called back to shoot the final shows. 

First on the list of actors who may have unexpectedly already filmed their farewell moment? That would be Ellie Kendrick, the actor who plays Meera Reed, the helpful northerner and fighter who began figuring into Bran's storyline in season three, loyally dragging the paralyzed young royal across what seemed to be several thousand miles of frigid, snowy landscape. 

The 27-year-old actress shared the news in an interview with Metro UKsaying she has yet to receive the call to come back to film an appearance in the final episodes.

Additionally, the production recently held a script run-through featuring what was supposedly the entire cast roster for the season, including roles both large and small—and Kendrick, for whatever reason, was apparently not invited.

So is there any chance Meera be returning for a final bow? According to Kendrick, "Not as far as I know. I don't know. It's funny because I always get asked, 'What's going to happen? Are you in it?' Genuinely the truth is I don't know."

Of course, it's still possible that Kendrick will be called in at some point—but considering the production for the elaborate (and lengthy) episodes has already begun on several continents, the prospects don't seem great, especially if she's yet to be involved up to this point.

If Reed is truly done as a character on the series, then her ending is ultimately rather sad, though she at least survived her insanely dangerous journey. She was last seen departing Winterfell after returning Bran to his ancestral home, furious at losing her brother Jojen and the loyal Stark servant Hodor on their long journey together.

"It was really sad on a personal level, because we had a little gang which dwindled further and further as the seasons went on," Kendrick said of Meera's arc. "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."

"All I can hope for is Meera is going to come back on a dragon and be the new queen," Kendrick said, in closing. "That'd be pretty sweet for me. But somehow, not quite sure that's how it's going to turn out."

Game of Thrones' final season is expected to air on HBO in late 2018 or 2019.
