Natalia played Osha in 16 episodes of the show’s early seasons, making her final appearance in 2016.
Despite having not been a part of fantasy series for the last few years, Natalia had remained a fan of the show, but like many viewers, was left cold by its final episode.
“I liked it up to the bit where [Arya] stabs the White Walker in the heart,” she told Kate Thornton on the presenter’s White Wine Question Time podcast. “I liked up to then. But after that… I feel like… I just didn’t understand it.”
Natalia continued: “The calibre of writing towards the end, and the plots, and everything that happened, and how they wrapped up, compared to any other season, any other bit, it just feels like it’s been written by different people. It doesn’t make sense. For me.”
She went on to say that after watching the finale, she was left “ranting for an hour” about how much she “didn’t like it”.
“Then I rang my friend to rant to him,” she joked.
Several members of the Game Of Thrones cast have addressed the backlash around the show’s divisive final series, including Lena Headey, who has admitted she wishes her character could have had a “better death”.
Other cast members have stuck up for the show, including Sophie Turner and Nikloaj Coster-Waulder, the latter of whom was booed at Comic-Con when he defended the finale.
