- "Kayla is famous here to Volantis... in certain circles. One of four women in the world who can perform a proper Meereenese Knot."
- ―Tyrion Lannister
Kayla is a recurring character in the third and fourth seasons. She is portrayed by contortionist Pixie Le Knot. Kayla is a prostitute in the King's Landing brothel owned by Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish.
Kayla is a prostitute and a highly skilled contortionist. She is one of only four women in the known world who can bend her body to the extent that she can properly perform a sexual position known as the "Meereenese Knot".
Along with Marei and Genna, she is one of the three prostitutes in Littlefinger's brothel who are hired by Tyrion Lannister to service Podrick Payne as a reward for saving his life in the Battle of the Blackwater. Kayla and her colleagues are apparently so satisfied with Podrick that they decline payment, much to the astonishment of Tyrion, Bronn, Ros, and even Varys.

In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, there is no character named Kayla. The "Meereenese Knot" is an inside joke to the books fandom about a major plot issue George R. R. Martin had to deal with when writing A Dance With Dragons.
