However, this does not necessarily mean she will remain with Uhtred and his friends, as she said Eadith was fiercely independent.
Martini added: “She doesn’t belong to anyone, she’s Eardwulf’s sister but she’s a woman in her own right.
“I really liked her – she’s quite sassy and funny at different points, she’s brave too. To play a journey like that over so many months meant I really got to get into it and discover lots of stuff.”
Fans had hoped to see a relationship blossom between Eadith and Uhtred’s friend, Finan (Mark Rowley).
In the final scenes of season four, Finan helped Eadith after she was injured in the Winchester battle.
