Actor Erika Kaar says that she found it tough to balance her look with her intense character in the film.

Erika Kaar is all set for her big Bollywood debut in Shivaay but the Polish actress revealed she had auditioned for popular TV series Game of Thrones and “almost” got in.

The sixth season of the fantasy-drama ended earlier this year and Erika says she was supposed to play a small role in the final episode of the season. “In the last episode of season six, where Arya Stark disguises herself as another woman and says ‘eat the pie’, I was supposed to be that girl. I played the part for audition. The casting people called my agent and said I was great because I did the part very well.

“But they said I was ‘too American’ because the part had to be more of British. I almost got it but the accent was too American. But my friend got that part so I was happy,” said Erika.

The TV series is an adaptation of George RR Martin’s fantasy novels A Song of Ice and Fire. Erika says she was not heartbroken that she did not get the part and hopes to feature on Game of Thrones in the future. “I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones. But I am happy because may be I will get a bigger part in the future as I didn’t get the tiny part... I think I could play a Southern princess. I would really love to be a part of the series, it will be a great opportunity.”
