Melara Hetherspoon is character in the fifth season, appearing in a flashback in "The Wars to Come". She is portrayed by Isabella Steinbarth. Melara is a member of House Hetherspoon, a vassal house of House Lannister, and a childhood friend and companion of Cersei Lannister.
Melara reluctanly accompanies Cersei in her visit to Maggy, a woods witch and reputed fortunte teller dwelling in a hut deep in a forest close to Casterly Rock. She watches as Cersei pricks her finger to draw a drop of blood for Maggy to taste and read Cersei's future.
In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Melara Hetherspoon is a daughter of Ser Tybolt Hetherspoon, the head of House Hetherspoon, and a childhood friend of Cersei Lannister. She's described as pretty but freckled, and "healthy as a horse". Unlike her portrayal in the series, Melara is described as bold, whereas the reluctant companion of Cersei and Melara is Jeyne Farman, who flees Maggy's tent the minute the woman opens her eyes. Like Cersei, Melara also asks about her future, asking if she will someday marry Jaime Lannister. In the series, the flashback ends before the audience learns if Melara asks her future.
