Dutch actress Karis Van Houten, who plays the most mysterious character – a red-haired priestess Melisandre in the popular TV series "Game of Thrones", is expecting a baby.
The father of the child is a famous Hollywood actor Guy Pearce, best known for his roles in such films as "Memento" and "LA Confidential."
In addition, the actress published this happy news on her Twitter page. She lightheartedly said that she is ready to hear the jokes from fans about her pregnancy, hinting at one of the scenes from "Game of Thrones", where her character gave birth to a shadow that killed Renly Baratheon.
Karis Van Houten is the second actress, who became pregnant at the beginning of the show. The first pregnant actress was Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), who gave birth to a daughter Tallulah in July 2015, from her partner on American fantasy drama series Pedro Pascal (Oberin Martell).
