Actress Josephine Gillan, who plays the prostitute Marei in popular fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, has revealed that she was a cocaine addict earlier in her life, and used to sell her body to buy it “three or four times a week.”

Gillan says her life was “saved” from drugs, prostitution and porn after she got the chance to act in the show.

Game Of Thrones’ saved my life. I couldn’t have gone on for much longer. I was addicted to cocaine and to keep the supply I needed, I had to sell my body three or four times a week.

Josephine went on to add that she earned thousands of pounds a week for sleeping with wealthy clients who’d pay her a fortune knowing they were having sex with a porn-star.

I should have been set up for life but all the money was being blown on drugs. I was a train crash.
