A new (old) princess is coming. 

When season five's nine new castmembers were announced during Game of Thrones' panel at San Diego Comic-Con, one actor, Nell Tiger Free, announced she was playing a role quite familiar to fans: Princess Myrcella Baratheon (but come on, we all know she's all Lannister), a character who has been on the show since the pilot. And with that, Aimee Richardson's prompt exit from the HBO fantasy hit happened.

Fortunately, Richardson is handling the recasting news like a pro, posting the most hilariously sad (or sadly hilarious) video to ever hit Vine

In the short video, Richardson is wearing a crown while holding a sign that reads "Princess for hire." Her caption for the video? "Well this is embarrassing." Well played, milady, well played.

After the recasting news was announced on Friday and before the now-infamous Vine video was posted, Richardson thanked her fans for their support.

"Wow you guys, I am completely overwhelmed and truly humbled by all of your messages of support, it means the world to me. Much love, Aims x," she tweeted.

Season five of GOT will premiere in 2015.
