San Diego Comic-Con brought us a slew of casting announcements, including the long awaited Sand Snakes. We now have our first interview from one of the new cast members, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, who will portray Tyene Sand, the daughter of Prince Oberyn Martell and his paramour Ellaria Sand.
Rosabell recently spoke with la Repubblica about landing the role of Tyene, and admits that before her audition, she was not familiar with Game of Thrones at all.
“I realized it was a phenomenon from the reaction of others. My agent asked me to shoot a video alone, at home, in which I tried to kill someone. A few weeks later, I was in London, and they called me saying ‘the creators of Game of Thrones want you for a segundo audition.’ I was then subjected to intensive sword training and martial arts.” link
