How Old Is Melisandre on Game of Thrones?

And Now, Some Answers About That Big Game of Thrones Twist

The most memorable moment on Game of Thrones season six premiere doesn't have to do with Jon Snow at all. In a bizarre twist at the end of the episode, Melisandre slips out of her cloak and chunky necklace and is suddenly old AF. (And I say that with total respect for the elderly.) While you may have been shocked, we probably should have seen this coming. "There have been a few hints before that Melisandre is much older than she appears," said producer/writer David Benioff in HBO's Inside the Episode. "Going back to a very early conversation with George R.R. Martin about her, she is supposed to be several centuries old." Interesting! There are some more great tidbits in here; just watch until the end.
