Josephine Gillan who played the prostitute Marei on HBO's Game of Thrones has asked the public for help after she claims Israeli child welfare took her daughter.

Gillan's 8-month-old daughter, Gloria, was allegedly taken by Israeli social services on August 7.

A spokesman for Israel's Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Social Services told the weekly newspaper that "cases such as this are under complete confidentiality by law, therefore it is impossible to reveal identifying details".

"Eight months ago she gave birth in Israel and began to raise her child under close supervision from the social services in her community and with the help of a friend", a person familiar with her case was quoted by the Mail as saying. With the police and kidnapped my daughter and took her to another family! "Me & my loving friend and her family!" I'm not allowed to see her or have contact with her!

"I was working as a w**** and at the same time making X-rated movies, using the name Sophie O'Brien, when I saw an advert on a website for actresses in the film industry".

A Channel 12 source claimed Gillan "flew to the United Kingdom for an extended period" after leaving the baby with her friend, "which caused the intervention of the welfare authorities and the courts".

The Independent reports that social services were acting on a court order to temporarily place Gillan's daughter in foster care in what they said were the baby's best interests. She had recently made this incident viral on her Twitter page recently. "We are all heartbroken!"

Gloria was then returned to Josephine's care until she was taken away last week.

The actress pleaded with fans through a GoFundMe to help her with legal costs associated with getting the infant back.

She continued: "No child should be without their parent!" I appreciate you reading this and please find it in your heart to help and also your prayers would mean alot also!

It is worth noting that the actress Josephine Gillan is known for a not very good reputation: she has problems with alcohol or drug addiction. "I came to Israel to have my baby ..."

Before appearing in on the show she had earned her living as a prostitute and working in porn. "But I had no idea how much it would change my life".
