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?
