According to the New Zealand Herald, Kiwi Academy-Award nominated actress Keisha Castle-Hughes is rumored to be cast as one of the Sand Snakes, the late Oberyn Martell’s bastard daughters of whom he spoke so fondly last season.
The newspaper states that Ms. Castle-Hughes has been sharing the news of her casting with her friends. In addition to this, her Twitter activity would seem to point towards something Thrones related, in that she has traveled to London and Belfast recently, lauded the show, and followed numerous cast members.
At this time, it is unclear which daughter she may be playing, but we will be sure to update you as soon as we know. Hopefully we’ll get more news on this, and other castings, at the San Diego Comic-Con later this month.
Thanks to WiC for the tip.
Game of Thrones returns in Spring 2015. We’ll provide the exact air date as soon as we have it.
