Along with several other images released from Entertainment Weekly this week, they have also released the first official images of the Sand Snakes. The Sand Snakes - Obara Sand, Nymeria Sand, and Tyene Sand - are the three bastard daughters of Prince Oberyn Martell.
The Entertainment Weekly article gives a wonderful description of what we can expect to see from the Sand Snakes this season:
There's the eldest, Obara (Keisha Castle-Hughes, a Kiwi whose character takes after her dad by fighting with a spear), Nymeria (Jessica Henwick, a Brit who wields a bullwhip) and the youngest, crop-topped Tyene (Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, an Italian-American who gets stabby with double daggers). "We haven't seen women like this on Game of Thrones," observes Castle-Hughes. "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."
