25 Game of Thrones characters that bring more fire than ice

12 of 26


The Red Woman is an interesting character, to say the least. She helps Stannis Baratheon to try and secure the Iron Throne, and when that didn’t work, she switches her allegiance to Jon Snow and both him and Daenerys Targaryen in search of Azor Ahai.

She is a powerful woman with a track record for trouble, but it is her all red looks that really have us reaching for our water bottles. Game of Thrones is no stranger to nude scenes, and Melisandre is one of the biggest culprits on the show.

That being said, we’re definitely not complaining about that. Played by Carice van Houten, she looks incredible on screen, and it doesn’t help us in our thirsting after the Red Priestess.

Luckily for us all, she’s one of the few characters to have lasted on the show for a long time. Starting her journey at the beginning of season 2, Melisandre has shown us her powers, her body, and left us needing all the refreshments we could get from how amazing she is.

Hopefully, she helps Daenerys secure the crown, leading to a badass lady group leading Westeros, but we’ll have to wait until season 8 and see how it all shakes out.
