25 Game of Thrones characters that bring more fire than ice

10 of 26


Shae is unapologetically sexy. A prostitute who falls in love with Tyrion Lannister, she becomes his greatest confidant and someone who willing to do whatever it takes for the man she loves. He manages to give her a place in King’s Landing as Sansa Stark’s maid, which also conveniently lets them continue their relationship.

Her seeming loyalty to Tyrion and her unwavering nature is one of the reasons we love her so much. Shae isn’t afraid to put someone in their place, and it is unfortunate when she is killed on the show. Tyrion isn’t the only one who loves her, after all.

We, as the audience, fell instantly in love when she strutted on-screen and made us fall for her. She has a power that makes you want to be around her and on her good side no matter what. So, of course, we wouldn’t throw her out of our beds! And neither would Tyrion … at least until that unfortunate reveal about her relationship with another Lannister.

Maybe it was how sweet she is with Tyrion that really warmed our hearts, but everything about her just screamed at the audience to love her. And so we did, and then we had to watch her die because that’s Game of Thrones for you.
