10 Things You Didn’t Know about Josephine Gillan

Josephine Gillan

Game of Thrones has been widely lauded as one of the best series, with fans eagerly awaiting its many sex scenes. If you are a fan of the show, you must have seen the prostitute with her striking red hair. Her name is Josephine Gillan and here is everything you need to know about the woman who has no qualms about being nude.

1. She was a prostitute in real life

If you are a Christian, then Josephine reminds you of the woman who was brought to Jesus to be stoned, but He turned the crowd away by telling them that the one without sin should cast the first stone. From drugs, alcohol, being raped, to doing pornography, and even exchanging her body for money, Josephine’s resume is full. However, that life is now in the past as she focuses on raising her daughter and setting a positive example.

2. She acted as a prostitute in Game of Thrones

Josephine’s revelation was quite ironic when she revealed as reported on Daily Mail that her acting in “Game of Thrones” saved her from being a prostitute in real life. Josephine got the part after responding to an advert calling for young women with no tattoos, natural breasts, and who also did not mind nudity. Given her line of work, Josephine had no qualms with being filmed naked. It was a godsend of an opportunity, and she became a recurring cast member of the series.

3. She suffered from postpartum depression

Most women who give birth suffer from mood swings that can last for two weeks after delivery. However, some will experience these symptoms for months, as postpartum depression sets in to disrupt a healthy relationship between the mother and baby. Josephine suffered from postpartum depression, and according to Meaww, social services ordered her to undergo therapy while a friend took care of her baby, to which Josephine complied.

4. Israeli social services took her daughter

It is disheartening when you are doing your utmost to be the best parent you can be, yet someone looks down on your efforts and tears you apart from your children. Josephine, who was already undergoing postnatal depression therapy as prescribed, found herself targeted by the Israeli social services. With the help of a friend and under the close supervision of social services, Josephine was raising her baby. Nevertheless, social services still took her baby away, responding to a court order that had been issued the previous week. They intervened because Josephine had been away in the UK for an extended period, leaving the baby with a friend. She had only returned to Israel to challenge the court order, possibly fearing that her daughter would endure a similar experience in the foster care system.

5. She moved to Israel from Britain last year

Josephine’s life seems to have ironic twists of fate. First, she acts as if she is a prostitute, which saves her from her real-life plight in the world of prostitution. Then Josephine leaves Britain to prevent social services from taking her baby, only for Israel to “kidnap” her daughter. Josephine was determined to keep her baby, and so last year she emigrated from Britain to Israel to have her child. Josephine cared for her daughter until she was five months old, when she began receiving treatment for postpartum depression.

6. She cannot afford legal fees

Josephine has been making money for a long time as a porn star, and according to The Daily Mail, female porn stars can make up to $2,000 per day. “Game of Thrones” actors also are paid handsomely, with some making as much as $1.2 million per episode in the 8th season. Although Josephine is not in the league of Kit Harrington or Emilia Clarke, even extras were being paid £500 per day in 2015, an amount that is likely to have increased. Josephine has been recurring in 6 seasons, so her pay per episode has to be lucrative. To see her asking people to help her raise $5,000 for legal fees has to make you wonder what she does with her money.

7. Her hair is naturally red

Men can be choosy about the women they like. While some prefer brunettes, others go for blondes. For this reason, women go to the lengths of dyeing their hair to draw the attention of men. Josephine was fortunate enough to have red hair, which is a unique trait sure to make men take notice of her and some women envious.

8. She acted in pornographic films

Most women who are in pornography are only trying to make a living. We all know that life can hit you so hard that you find yourself at rock bottom. Even Sylvester Stallone had to pass through X-rated films before getting his big break in Hollywood. Josephine had already experienced so much hardship by the time she was 15, so as an adult, her life choices weren’t necessarily in line with any moral code. She decided to act in pornographic movies as Sophie O’Brien, and maybe it was this experience that helped her become the star she is today.

9. She grew up in a foster home

No parents in their right mind ever want to leave their children to grow up in the foster system. However, sometimes, there is only so much they can do. Josephine is one woman whose childhood was not without hardships. At only 12 years of age, Josephine was taken into a foster home to be raised by a family friend. Unfortunately, he took advantage of her, grooming her for his own selfish and immoral motives. Josephine was introduced to drugs and alcohol, and by 14 she was addicted to cocaine. To make matters worse, the family friend sexually assaulted Josephine and went on to exploit her by pimping her out to his associates.

10. She went to 24 primary schools

We all read biographies of people who have attended a few schools, especially universities, because they dropped out. However, attending 24 primary schools has to be a new record, yet Josephine had no choice but to keep changing schools. Josephine’s mother was unfortunate to fall in love with a violent man. Consequently, when she decided to break free from the violent relationship, the man kept pursuing her, forcing Josephine to keep changing schools.Kit Harrington
