There’s another Sand Snake who’ll make her first appearance on Game of Thrones’ upcoming fifth season, and they may have cast a Lost alum to fill her sandals shoes.
Vulture reports that actress Tanis Raymonde (aka Lost's Alex Rousseau) has read for the role of Obara Sand, who is the eldest of the vengeful and dangerous Sand Snakes -- Oberyn Martell’s (Pedro Pascal) Dornish, bastard daughters -- and that a video purporting to her audition leaked on the internet, only to be taken down.
Just last week, we told you that New Zealand actress Keisha Castle Hughes had been cast in what would be the part of Obara’s sister Nymeria Sand. That makes two out of three Sand Snakes possibly cast -- with the third and the remaining one to be cast being Tyene.
They also report that actress Aimee Richardson, who plays Myrcella Baratheon -- the Twincest product of Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and her twin brother Jaime’s (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) luuurve -- may be replaced by Nell Tiger Free (if the rumors pan out), in a bid to age the character just a tad (she frankly doens't look that much older than Richardson), just like they did last year for her brother King Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman replaced Callum Whary in season four).
Hopefully, we’ll get some official confirmation from HBO over this upcoming weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con.
What do you guys think? Would Tania Raymonde make a fine addition to Game of Thrones as Obara Sand? And do you believe that Myrcella Baratheon should be re-cast?
