Even minor Game of Thrones cast members got a nice career boost from the show. Take Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, who played Tyene Sand on that show. You might remember her as the most memorable of Oberyn Martell’s daughters the Sand Snakes, not that that’s saying much.

Anyway, Deadline now reports that Sellers is joining the upcoming Willow show on Disney+ as “a resourceful character with sharp, acerbic wit,” although she doesn’t have a name yet.

A TV spinoff of the 1980 fantasy movie, the Willow show is about a princess who assembles a party to join her on a quest to rescue her twin brother. That party will include Willow, played once again by Warwick Davis. Other cast members include Tony Revolori, Amer Chadha-Patel , Ellie Bamber, Ruby Cruz, and Erin Kellyman.
