Headhunted for new role in HBO series
An Irish model has landed her acting debut on the medieval series “Game of Thrones”.
The Dublin model told the Evening Herald that series producers discovered her head shots online and asked her to star in the show.
The brunette Assets model will play the part of the king’s mistress and will star alongside Sean Bean and Lena Headey. The second series is currently filming in Belfast and is based on George R.R. Martin’s popular “A Song of Ice and Fire” series of fantasy novels.

Nolan revealed to the Herald: "They scouted me out online. They were looking for a girl with long dark hair. I will be playing the king's mistress on the side for a few days. I can't wait.
"I just had a fitting and I met all of the cast. We are shooting inside a castle."
The 21-year-old is shooting her scenes for the film this week but despite been asked to go topless, has vowed to remain fully clothed.
"When I got hired for the part I was told that I would be topless and I wasn't happy about that at all.
"I would never do something like that I have to think of my family," she said.
