Did someone say Acharia's 'work permit' was running out? Sounds like a problem that could have been solved.
Still irritated about Roxanne McKee , tho she does have another job.

You could argue that they could make up stuff for her to do, and that's fair. But it's not like she had some big part to play that will be missed.
I think Irri's death was poorly handled, there should have been at least a little time devoted to Dany grieving or something. But I don't have a problem with them not wanting to keep such a peripheral character around forever, there are so many characters in the show that it just isn't practical.

Irri does almost nothing in the books. Books are not TV. It is not realistic to keep every actor around that has a handful of mentions throughout the series.
My gripe is that even with little to do the Hand Maidens and Blood Riders provided a Dothraki continuity for Dany thru out the whole story , as of the end of book five. I don't know about the 70 or so khalasar who are also with her thought out five novels. Tho they are kind of 'now you see them, now you don't'. Just like season two episode 10 'there they are!'.
(Where do they go in the books? Seems they are with her at Meereen , in ADwD the HM and BR are on page, but I am not sure her hidden khalasar are?
Yet if they pop up next book , no surprise.)
Well the hand maidens and blood riders don't do much (well the BR do provide a fearsome body guard for her, in the books)... don't have many speaking parts , but they provided a kind of narrative continuity and connection that was a nice fringe by George. Don't see why they would have to have been expensive actors.
Seems , round here, there was mention Dany would pick up one new or is old? Dothraki hand maiden , apart from Missandei?
