by Rob Fee
While her character on the highly popular Game of Thrones is a priestess of R'hllor and a Shadowbinder named Melisandre, I'm fairly certain she's nothing like that in real life. Carice was kind enough to take time out of manipulating shadows and overthrowing empires to answer a few questions for us.
