Inside "Mother's Mercy"

Season 5 of Game of Thrones is over, but HBO hasn't left us without their bonus videos.  For this weeks episode, "Mother's Mercy", we have 3 bonus videos.  The first of the videos is David Benioff and Dan Weiss going inside the episode and breaking down key scenes from the episode.  Next we have George R.R. Martin talking about Cersei's walk of atonement.  And finally we have Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Nell Tiger Free, and Indira Varma talking about Myrcella's farewell.

Ellaria Sand Cast

Ellaria Sand Cast

We finally have our second Dornish role casted for Season 4, our first being Pedro Pascal as Oberyn Martell.  Indira Varma, who you may recall her from HBO’s Rome, has been casted to play Ellaria Sand the paramour of Prince Oberyn Martell.

I’m very happy with the role, although I never watched Rome before it was canceled I have heard she was great in it.  I think her appearance is pretty accurate to what I imagined Ellaria looking like, possibly just a smudge darker skin pigment otherwise I think they did a great job casting. Altogether I think she’ll do a great job, and am looking forward to seeing her as Ellaria.
