The Last Kingdom is on Netflix now and the series has been renewed for a fifth season, which will see Alexander Dreymon reprise his role as Uhtred. Throughout the series the Dane Slayer has been in many relationships, but his first wife was Mildrith (played by Amy Wren). Mildrith disappeared from the series in the first season and fans are keen to know why actress Wren left the series.
Mildrith was one of the recurring characters in The Last Kingdom, as well as in The Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell, on which the series is based.
She was Uhtred's first wife, and their marriage had been arranged as part of an agreement which would see Uhtred gain ownership of some land in Wessex.
Their relationship was toxic at first as they had very different beliefs when it came to religion, with Mildrith being a faithful Christian.
However over time Mildrith accepted that God must have led her to Uhtred for a reason, and they set their differences aside to form a loving relationship.
After a few months Mildrith fell pregnant, but he died as a baby while Uhtred was away. When Uhtred returned he had formed a relationship with Iseult (Charlie Murphy) so Mildrith kicked him out.

In the end Uhtred and Mildrith had a conversation about ending their relationship and Mildrith said she had found peace, and she wanted Uhtred out of her life.
Believing they had nothing left to connect them, she chose to go her own way, and her last appearance was in episode eight of the first season.
Her departure from the series was never explained, and fans are still wondering what happened to her after she left the series.
There is nothing to suggest her character was killed off, but it does not seem likely that she will be making a comeback any time soon.
Actress Wren is yet to reveal why she left the series, however it may have something to do with the fact she only featured in two of Cornwell's novels.
Her first appearance was in The Last Kingdom, but she was written out after The Pale Horseman, but she remained alive in the books.

As she was only ever a supporting character, it would not be unusual for her character to disappear from
