Last month, a significant casting news blew a hole in a popular fan theory. It looks like another fan theory is about to go down. Season 7 of Game Of Thrones showed a lot of relationships coming to an end. One such relationship was between Bran Stark and Meera Reed. It looks like fans have seen the last of Meera Reed.
In a two-part interview with the Metro, Ellie Kendrick the actress who plays Meera Reed told that we might not see her in the last season. She said :
“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. I wait for the phone to ring and then I find out, but it hasn’t rung so I don’t know. I’ll find out whether I am or not at some point, but for now I haven’t been notified so I’m yet to discover.”
The majority of the cast,including the minor characters were a part of the recent season 8 read-though, and Ellie wasn’t a part of it. So it seems highly unlikely that she would be seen next season. The casting debunks the theory that Meera Reed is Jon Snow’s sister. While majority of fans were convinced after the reveal of Jon Sown birth that Meera isn’t Jon’s sister, some were still convinced that she might be Jon’s half sister.
This might also mean that her father, Howland Reed won’t be there to tell the tales of the Battle of Joy. Since Howland Reed was there for Jon’s birth, people believed that he would be the one to tell Jon of his true parentage. If Meera isn’t coming back, maybe we won’t get to see the older version of Howland Reed on the show.
