A Game of Thrones actress claims she was called a ‘transgender whore’ while shopping in Zara.

Laura Pradelska – who starred as the character Quaithe in the second season of the hit HBO show – was reportedly shopping in the Oxford Street branch when she was verbally abused by other shoppers.

Writing on Twitter, Pradelska said: “So, I NEVER rant on social media., but I’ve just witness the worst behaviour @ZARA on Oxford Street.

“4 women jumped the queue, a kind lady behind me politely asked them not to, at which point they started shouting the worst abuse at her, I told them to calm down, they then verbally attacked me with vile racial abuse, whilst one of the women continued to scream in my face that I’m a TRANSGENDER whore – completely insignificant whether I am trans or not but I’d hope @ZARA would never tolerate this behaviour.

“The women should’ve been kicked out.”

Zara replied to her comment apologising for what happened and asked her to contact them and say which store she was in.
