ROME Actress Joins GAME OF THRONES Season 4

EW are back with another Game Of Thrones season 4 casting scoop -- and this time they know the character too. Indira Varma (Rome, Human Target, Luther) will play 'Ellaria Sand', lover of Prince Oberyn Martell. Read on for more..

Joining new cast members Pedro Pascal (Oberyn "The Red Viper" Martell) and Mark Gatiss (still unknown) is Idira Varma, who is probably best known for playing Niobe on another HBO series, Rome. According to Entertainment Weekly Varma will play Ellaria, "the sexually adventurous paramour" of Oberyn. In addition, showrunner David Benioff tells EW that he feels season 4 is the most action packed yet. “We got more action, which is obviously more time consuming,” says Benioff. “It’s a brutal shooting season ahead. But if we can make it through, yeah, I think it’s going to surpass season three. The last 3 episodes, there’s so many scenes we’ve been waiting for so long to do. And it just gets more and more fun to write for these characters. After three years of doing it, we have that much more comfort to make everything uncomfortable for them. We’re very excited for it.”

Are you kidding me? She's 40! ..and looks smashing.

I'm only vaguely familiar with her. But I will say she pretty much looks exactly the way I pictured Ellaria, the Sand Snakes and other women from Dorne. Dornish definitely had a mideastern/Persian kind of look in my head. The guy playing Oberyn not as much. But I'm confident they'll do this right.

And Rome was fantastic. Btw. Ciarán Hinds did/does a great Caesar and Mance Rayder.

ROME...such a great show,needed more.
HBO said it was very expensive filming it actually in Italy.

It's great to be authentic but stop going to far off places if not cost-effective.
You can find good locations closer & keep show going.
