Season five casting is well under way, and it was only a matter of time before audition tapes began turning up. It’s a tradition at this point, going all the way back to the first season, with a certain actor we’re all very familiar with now.
The first audition to surface online this year is that of Lost actress Tania Raymonde, reading for the role of Obara Sand. (The video has since been taken offline.) Obara is the eldest of Oberyn Martell’s daughters, known collectively as the Sand Snakes. According to the leaked casting call, the athletic Obara will be having a fight scene with a significant character.
The audition reading appears to be a scene between Obara and her sister Tyene. We’ve tucked details of the scene below the cut as they do contain major season five spoilers!
In the audition, Obara and Tyene broach the topic of avenging their father Oberyn, and Obara shares the story of how he collected her from her mother long ago, with Obara choosing the spear. It sounds like the seeds of the plot surrounding Princess Myrcella are being sown in the conversation, with the mention of them “having one of them.” Most interestingly though, Obara reveals that Jaime Lannister has been sighted sneaking into Dorne, leaving some to wonder if this is the notable character who will cross swords with Obara.
Edit: Hmm, the conversation might be between Obara, Tyene, and another party. It’s hard to tell, based on the wording, and with only one person reading the other scripted lines.
Ours is the Fury: I do love casting season! What does everyone think of Jaime going to Dorne?
