According to the New Zealand Herald, we may just have our first bit of major casting news for the fifth season of Game Of Thrones. They report that 24-year-old “Whale Rider” star and Academy Award Nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes will play one of Oberyn Martell's bastard daughters, who are known as the Sand Snakes. The site don't know which one exactly, but given the actress's age, speculate that it'll likely be Nymeria Sand, who is described as "beautiful, of mixed race, emotional and strong" in the official casting call. Though there are 8 Sand Snakes in the books, the show is expected to utilize only 3: Nymeria, Obara Sand, the eldest, and Tyene Sand, the youngest. Apparently we're still awaiting conformation from Castle-Hughes' manager, so don't take this as a done deal just yet.
