“I had no idea how much it would change my life”, says Josephine Gillan about her casting as prostitute Marei in Emmy Award Winning TV show ‘Game of Thrones’. On Sunday, in front of the daily Mail, Josephine described her traumatizing foster life where she was raped and pimped in her adolescence until she sees an advert of a TV company looking for a woman with no tattoo and doesn’t mind being filmed naked.“They wrote back that they wanted me and I was thrilled because it was an amazing opportunity to do some proper acting. But I had no idea how much it would change my life“, she added. Marei is still alive and kicking in seasons two, three, four and five and is yet to make an appearance on season 6.
