Oona Chaplin "serious" drawing

Every so often I challenge myself to do a more "serious" drawing - not a caricature, not a stylized depiction of someone or something, not a cartoon. Every so often I think the results are okay. I was unaware of the actress Oona Chaplin (daughter of Geraldine, granddaughter of Charlie) until she showed up on Game of Thrones, and I thought she was not only a strong character presence in the massive ensemble, but she also had a great face for drawing. She played the character with a nice undercurrent of sadness and impending doom, as if she felt like she was never destined for a happy life. She should have R.S.V.P.'d "ignore" instead of "going" to that Red Wedding invitation...
