Nell Tiger Free is an actress and singer who resides in Britain, and as you have probably guessed, mostly works there as well. As far as acting goes, she is best known for her appearances in such works as 2012’s American television movie ‘Mr. Stink’ and more recently has made quite a name for herself in the States through her work in the intensely popular ‘Game of Thrones’ as Myrcella Baratheon.

But aside from ‘Game of Thrones’, we Americans have had little else in the way of exposure to Nell Tiger Free.

In 2014 she began making the series ‘Endeavor’, and in 2015-2016 she took up the part of Myrcella in ‘Game of Thrones’; the part was played by Aimee Richardson prior to Nell stepping up to the plate. Other parts she has had are all from 2019, and include ‘Wonderwell’, ‘Too Old To Die Young’, and ‘Servant.’
3. Salary and Net Worth
As we mentioned, Free has been acting since the age of thirteen, which has given her time to build up her resume see increases in pay, though she is not yet earning the wage garnered by stars who are enjoying veteran status. As of last year she was said to earn approximately $10-$13,000 US dollars per episode she was in on ‘GOT’. She had an estimated net worth of between $500k and $600k in 2018, but it has risen to an estimated $1 to $5 million this year. Her pay per episode is also higher, at approximately $500k per episode of ‘Game of Thrones’ that she is featured in.

According to all sources, Nell is not married, and she has no children. But the word is that she and ‘Game of Thrones’ co-star, Dean Charles Chapman, who played her brother Tommen Baratheon on the series, have been dating, and are said to be quite the hot item.
6. Zodiac and Star Sign Traits
With a birthdate of October 13, Nell is a Libra. According to Astrology.com, Libra women are playful and usually are up to a wild, adventurous time, even if the good time is a simple pleasure. These women are open to trying just about anything when it comes to life experiences, from skipping through the wildflowers to taking a ride on a Ferris wheel. With that being said, at the heart of it all is their need for balance in life, and this is the reason their sign is grasping the scales.
7. She Is Also A Singer
As mentioned in our opening paragraph, Nell also sings. Sources say that she was actually into music before she ever broke her teeth in the acting world. Her very first album, ‘No Tie Friday’, was released for public sale when she was eighteen years of age. Currently 20, Nell has not yet tackled a second musical project, but such a project is likely in the works as this is written.
8. Bound For Future Success
According to AnswersAfrica, there are four things in particular that prove that Nell Tiger Free has future celebrity success written in her stars. First, she can list ‘Game of Thrones’ on her resume. Second, she is multi-talented, as shown by the fact that she has released an album. Being in a celebrity romance since 2015 with Dean Charles Chapman is also given as a reason (that we don’t understand), and finally, Nell is bound for future success because of her beauty and physical appeal, which we do understand. After all, it’s important to look good if you are going to soar with the stars.
9. Professional Associations
Thanks to her landing a role in the Apple original series ‘Servant’, Nell can claim a professional association with director M. Night Shyamalan; the series also hooked her up with co-star Lauren Ambrose. She also starred in ‘Mr. Stink’ with actress Sheridan Smith.
10. Another Future Project
Not only can we count ‘Servant’ among her projects, but Free is also expected to integrate her music into her acting somehow. When asked by Wonderland Magazine if we should be on the lookout for ‘A Star Is Born’ type work, she laughed and told them that anything is possible. I think when it comes to this young lady we shouldn’t be surprised at anything.
