Earlier today, Entertainment Weekly revealed four new covers for this week's print issue, which features Game of Thrones stars Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark). As the countdown to Season 5 continues, EW has three more photos featuring each of the Sand Snakes, Obara (Keisha Castle-Hughes), Nymeria (Jessica Henwick) and Tyene (Rosabell Laurenti Sellers). All of these half-sisters were born from the same father, Prince Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal). These women from Dorne only have revenge on their mind, and, according to series creator David Benioff, the siblings are always fighting, but they still find a way to come together.
"It's fun because they're constantly fighting, but it's the kind of family that if an outsider comes in, they all band together and unify."
Keisha Castle-Hughes also revealed that the Sand Snakes represent a different type of female character than we've seen before on the show, as they begin their quest for revenge against the Lannister clan.
We haven't seen women like this on Game of Thrones before. You have lone wolves like Arya and Brienne, and others like Daenerys or Cersei, who are politically strong surrounded by men. But you haven't seen women who are strong together and who collaborate - which is a dangerous thing. We're three girls who are violent and manipulative who are thirsty for Lannister blood."
As you can see in the images below, each of the Sand Snakes has their own weapon of choice. Keisha Castle-Hughes' Obara prefers the spear like her father Oberyn, while Jessica Henwick's Nymeria uses a bullwhip and Rosabell Laurenti Sellers' Tyene brandishes double daggers. Take a look at the images below, and stay tuned for more photos, footage and details for Game of Thrones as we get closer and closer to the Season 5 premiere on April 12.
