It has been revealed that an actress who essayed the role of a prostitute on HBO's fantasy series "Game of Thrones" is in fact an escort in real life. Saeeda Vorajee played the role of Armeca on the first two seasons of "Game of Thrones" and she was also involved in a controversial lesbian sex scene. Professionally, she is known as Sahara Knite and according to a recent report, she charges up to Â£900 for her services.
During a Sun on Sunday investigation, where one of the paper's reporters visited her at her home in Strood, Kent, Knite offered a massage and sex act for Â£65 or full sexual intercourse for Â£900. The steep price is to keep away the riff-raff, she said, according to Daily Mail.
She told the journalist: "People save up for it. Other girls charge a lot less but they have to work a lot harder. Plus I work from home and you've got to be discreet about certain things." Shortly after The Sun's story went online, she took to Twitter to blast the reporter for stooping "really low" to sell a story.
"To the person who stooped really low to sell a story that was of no relevance 2 no one, hope you got paid a lot of money!!!! #jackass," she wrote. "A newspaper decides to write some worthless junk and another newspaper decides they have to follow suit! @SimonKeegan."

Here are a few interesting facts about the actress:
Family: Knit's family is originally from Gujarat, India, and they moved to London in 1960. Knite was reportedly raised as a traditional Muslim, and her work in the adult industry has apparently resulted in her family getting a lot of hate mails.
Initially, she hid her career from her orthodox family, but they came to know about it after a friend babbled the truth about Knites career.
UK's first Muslim adult film star: Before appearing on "Game of Thrones," Knite was exposed as "UK's first Muslim porn star," reported Daily Star. She has reportedly worked in a number of raunchy films.
Social media: Her description on Twitter reads: "British Indian Adult Performer *In #GoT1&2 *Masseuse/Mistress/Session wrestler/Livechat & cam performer *BJJ/Olympic lifting competitor." Her website is Saharaknite.co.uk.
