Game of Thrones is set to premiere its hugely anticipated Season 5 in just four short Sundays from now. One of this year's most exciting new additions to the fantasy series are the Sand Snakes. A new featurette has arrived, which shows off these three lovely ladies, and explains their background and reason for being in Westeros.

The three Sand Snakes are the warrior daughters of Prince Oberyn Martell. Taking on these interesting new characters are Rosabell Laurenti Sellers as Tyene Sand, Jessica Henwick as Nym Sand, and Keisha Castle-Hughes as Obara Sand. A previous featurette offered a look at the young women's weapons. Now, we get more insight into their personal lives and the mission they set out on in these all-new episodes which will be airing throughout the spring.

Game of Thrones Season 5 is set to premiere in over 170 countries and territories across the globe simultaneously on Sunday, April 12 at 9:00pm ET. Game of Thrones is based on George R.R. Martin's fantasy series A Song Of Ice and Fire, where political and sexual intrigue abound as seven noble families fight for control of the mythical land of Westeros. The epic series, with story lines of treachery and nobility, family and honor, ambition and love, and death and survival, has captured the imagination of fans globally and become one of the most popular shows on television.
