Keisha Castle-Hughes

?Cam and I are huge Game of Thrones fans. I have the entire series on my bookshelf but found the books just too fat to easily use so now read them on my trusty Kindle Paperwhite. We also watch the T.V series and were not at all happy when Prince Oberyn was defeated in his epic battle with the Mountain. I am thrilled that a talented New Zealander like Keisha has scored the role of one of Prince Oberyn’s daughters. From the description below it sounds like a cracker and she should have a blast learning to fight like a bastard,Dornish Princess.


Keisha Castle-Hughes has been confirmed in the cast for season five of Game of Thrones.

Castle-Hughes joins other notable newcomers to the cast of the hit fantasy epic including veteran English actor Jonathan Pryce.

The Whale Rider Oscar nominee will be playing the role of Obara Sand, the eldest of eight bastard daughters – also known as “the Sand Snakes” – of Dornish prince Oberyn Martell, who died at the end of season four of the HBO series.

It’s likely Castle-Hughes will face some big fight scenes in future episodes.

According to the Game of Thrones Wiki, Obara is “a daughter of a whore of Oldtown, and given to martial pursuits as she considers herself a warrior, wielding a spear and whip.
