Just minutes ago, the hit HBO series Game of Thrones returned to San Diego Comic-Con to promote Season 5 of their critically-acclaimed series. Since production is currently under way, it seems unlikely that any new footage will be shown from the upcoming season. However, the cast and crew did present a Season 4 blooper reel that had the Hall H crowd in stitches. Take a look as Peter Dinklage Peter Dinklage can't manage to say the word "private," and breaks out in a dance with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, while Maisie Williams takes a tumble while practicing her swordfighting skills and Emilia Clarke drops an F-bomb. You can also read on to see which new cast members will be joining the series.
A number of new Season 5 cast members were also announced at the panel, including Keisha Castle-Hughes, who is playing one of the "Sand Snakes," Obara Sand. We previously reported that the Oscar-nominated actress was playing Nymeria Sand, one of Oberyn Martell's (Pedro Pascal) eight daughters, although that role will be played Jessica Henwick. Rosabell Laurenti Sellers is playing the third Sand Snake, Tyene, and it is believed that only these three daughters will be used in the show.
Other new cast members include Jonathan Pryce as the High Sparrow, who comes to King's Landing to serve the poor and the ailing, and quickly amasses a large following. Alexander Siddig has signed on to play Doran Martell, the ruling lord of Dorne and brother to Oberyn Martell. We reported last month that the show will be heading to Dorne this season.
Rounding out the new cast is Toby Sebastian as Trystane Martell, Oberyn's son and heir to the throne, Nell Tiger Free as Myrcella Baratheon, who is betrothed to Trystane as part of an alliance with Tywin Lannister, Deobia Oparei as Areo Hotah, captain of the Dorne palace guard and Enzo Cilenti, who was a wealthy slave trader before the practice was outlawed by Daenerys Targaryen.
