Two of the ‘Sand Sisters’ Completed Filming

Season 5 is almost upon us and most of the actors are wrapping up their final scenes. However, some are still filming those last tid-bit scenes but for two of the new Sand Sisters that will appear in season 5, it definitely is a wrap for them.

Keisha-Castle Hughes will portray the role of Obara Sand in the upcoming season. She is the eldest daughter to Oberyn Martell but she does not command the same respect as her sister Nymeria because her mother is a not a noble woman.

International Business Times explains:

Obara Sand is, however, a strong character, and readers may get to see her use her whip to good effect in “Game of Thrones” Season 5. The character is known for her quick temper and a warrior-like temperament. She does not believe in being diplomatic and makes her displeasure known about any issue immediately.

Well, she certainly sounds fun and I have a feeling I am really going to like her. As for Nymeria Sand, who is portrayed by Jessica Henwick, she is chosen to take her late father’s place at the small council in King’s Landing by Prince Doran.

International Business Times also explains:

According to the books, she is one of the characters most eager to exact revenge on the Lannisters for the death of her father, Oberyn Martell.

Seems like I will really like her too! Both actresses have completed filming for their characters and during their time, they traveled to three different countries. Keisha explained that she filmed for six months and flew for over 200 hours for the role while Jessica filmed for five months. There is also one more important Sand Snake sister but it appears she may still be filming.

I don’t know about everyone else, but I am super excited for Dorne! How does everyone else feel?

Sand Snakes to appear in S5

In recent weeks, we have found out that Spain would be the filming location for Dorne and now we have received even more news of characters coming out of that location. After Oberyn Martell’s disturbing death last season, we are now being introduced to at least three of his daughters who are referred to as the Sand Snakes.

These characters are originally introduced in the Dance of Dragons¬†novel and they are the illegitimate daughters of Oberyn. Also, just like the North uses ‘Snow’ to represent illegitimacy, Dorne uses ‘Sand’ for the same purpose.

According to International Business Times:

The Sand Snakes will be arriving on the scene in Season 5 as a result of their father’s death at the hands (very literally) of Gregor Clegane. In the books, the daughter’s urge Dorne to declare war in retribution for their father’s death, carrying out secret missions to advance their cause and agitating the people of Dorne. Some of them are eventually imprisoned for their warmongering.¬†

As is their right to be angry over the father’s death, but let’s face it, he did monologue a bit too much during that fight. I mean, did anyone else wish he would stop talking and just kill the mountain? I get that he wanted the Mountain to admit the injustice done to his sister but, goodness, I was freaking out.

Anywho, like stated, three of the daughters have already been cast.
Rosabell Laurenti Sellers will play Tyene Sand, Jessica Henwick will play Nymeria Sand, and Keisha Castle-Hughes will play Obara Sand.

So, what does everyone think? Excited for the Sand Snakes? I think three strong and fierce female characters will be fantastic!
