Game of Thrones Season 5 Casting Announced

-

So far, SDCC 2014 has seen two of our favorite television series reveal tantalizing new details. First was the premiere trailer for Season 5 of The Walking Dead, and now another show in its 5th season, Game of Thrones, has teased us with some new info. HBO has announced new cast members who will be joining the show for the next season.

The new cast members are as follows:

Alexander Siddig

Alexander Siddig will be Doran Martell, the older brother of Prince Oberyn Martell and the current ruler of Dorne. He is best known for his roles in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and 24.

Toby Sebastian

Toby Sebastian has been cast in the role of Trystane Martell. He is the son of Doran Martell and the heir to the throne of Dorne.

Nell Tiger Free

The role of Myrcella Baratheon has been recast. The part was formerly portrayed by the actress Aimee Richardson, but she has been replaced by Nell Tiger Free. Myrcella Baratheon was sent to Dorne to marry Trystane Martell, a union engineered by Doran Martell and Tywin Lannister. Although, the recent head-crushing might have put a strain on that relationship.

The three Sand Snakes will be played by Jessica Henwick as Nymeria or ‘Nym” Sand, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers as Tyene Sand and Oscar Award-nominated Keisha Castle-Huges will fill the role of Obara Sand. The three Sand Snakes are the bastard daughers of Prince Oberyn Martell. Each has a different mother and an equally distinct background and personality.

DeObia Oparei

DeObia Oparei (Doom and the recent Dredd film) has been cast for the role of Areo Hotah, the loyal captain of Doran Martell’s palace guard.

Enzo Cilenti

Enzo Cilenti is Yezzan, a man who made his riches from the slave trade before it was outlawed. He will be a thorn in the side of our lovely Queen Daenerys.

 Jonathan Pryce

And last but, not least, we have the wonderful Jonathan Pryce, who is famous for his role in the Pirates of the Caribbean films (and also Red Alert 3!). He will be playing the role of the High Sparrow, a devoutly religious man who fights for the poor and speaks out against the opulence and greed of the rich. He is a man completely devoted to the Faith of the Seven and is totally hardcore as evidenced by his callused and gnarled feet which he used to walk all over the realm being pious and s t. The veteran actor will hopefully add an exciting new dynamic as he brings the smackdown of the Seven upon the cruel and petty nobility of King’s Landing.

So there you have it! These are new additions to the Game of Thrones family for the upcoming fifth season. This video was shown at SDCC 2014 and introduces all of our brand new friends. I wonder who will make it out alive?!

Game of Thrones is the HBO television adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ book series.
