James Hibberd of InsideTV reports that Indira Varma has been cast as Ellaria Sand!
Ellaria Sand is the beloved paramour of Prince Oberyn Martell, and the mother of the four youngest "Sand Snakes," Oberyn's bastard daughters. Ellaria herself is the bastard daughter of Lord Harmen Uller, a nobleman of Dorne. Ellaria is referred to as worshiping a Lysene love goddess, and was also described by Oberyn as being sexually adventurous and potentially bisexual.
Although not accounted as a beautiful woman, she is regarded as attractive and eye-catching, with an exotic, sensuous flair. She has black hair.
Okay, the book role is rather minor, so much so that many expected the role to be cut entirely. However, casting a well-known actress of Indira Varma's caliber makes me think HBO will expand the role! She has been my personal favorite (although I epxected a less well known actress honestly) and many other people's favorite for the role for years now!
