Like father, Like daughter; is that perhaps Obara Sand (Keisha Castle-Hughes) we spy spinning just like Daddy (*sob*)? Other possibilities include Tyene (Rosabell Laurenti Sellers) or Nymeria (Jessica Henwick), but my brain is seeing Castle-Huges’ face.


In a recent interview, the actress (who actively sought a GoT role) spoke a bit about her character:

“Obara Sand likes to think of herself as a warrior monk, some of her favorite pastimes are murdering people with her spear and meditating and picking on her younger sister, oh, and riding her horses.

It’s been very intensive, my character wields a 7-foot spear, the same as her father, so I’ve had lots of martial art training in the martial art of Wushu which has been really interesting and different for me, I’m more of a dramatic actress and I’ve never really done a lot physical or stunt-based roles before . It’s been a massive challenge but it’s been so much fun.

I think people are going to be really blown away by the Sand Snakes, there’s three of us and we’re Oberyn’s daughters. There’s eight of us in total but they’re showcasing three characters, Obara, Nymeria, and Tyene.”

(full interview here)

It’s a short peek, but probably the most we’ve seen of season 5 thus far, so we’ll take it with our, “Thanks HBO, may we have another?”

This looks like the beginning of Cersei’s walk…no spoilers in the comments please.


And a few more gifs to study:
