Eadith in ‘The Last Kingdom’

Eadith is the sister of Eardwulf (Jamie Blackley), who is in charge of Aethelred’s (Toby Regbo) household guards, and she is manipulated by him into being Aethelred’s mistress. After Eadith helps Aethelflaed (Millie Brady), who is Aethelred’s wife, escape after Eadith’s brother kills Aethelred, she ends up having to find Uhtred to deliver a message to him for Aethelflaed about where to meet them. Then she finds herself allied with Uhtred and his warriors, staying with them even after Aethelflaed pays her off and explains she can’t stay in Aegelesburg.
