Game of Thrones Season 5 Spoilers and Audition Tapes. Audition tapes have surfaced of Tania Raymonde and Antonio Marziale for the fifth season of HBO‘s Game of Thrones. The audition tapes are for two of the roles we reported on earlier. Those roles are of Obara Sand, the bastard daughter of Oberyn Martell and an Oldtown whore. She is the eldest of the infamous Sand Snakes and Trystane Martell, youngest child of the ruling prince of Dorne, Doran Martell, and his wife, Mellario of Norvos. Within the audition tapes are where the spoilers can be found, read by Tania Raymonde and Antonio Marziale out loud (though these could be a fake scripts with fake plot points used simply to audition potential actors).
The major spoiler in question (do not read this if you want to go into the next season not knowing anything [besides reading the book season 5 is based on]):
[The Tania Raymonde] video reveals Obara hearing about JAIME LANNISTER being smuggled into DORNE. (At 0:40 seconds)
The full dialogue from the video and speculation on its contents:
OBARA – Admit defeat Tyene. Nym’s mother taught her the whip before the knife and fork. Will it be war? Woman Off Camera – Prince Doran will weep for your father but nothing else. We must avenge Oberyn ourselves.
OBARA – Without Doran we have no army to march against the Lannisters.
Woman Off Camera – We don’t need an army to start a war. Queen Cersei loves her children, and we have one of them.
OBARA – Now you may have a problem.
Woman Off Camera – What’s that?
OBARA – A ship’s captain came to me in plankytown claiming to have information to sell. I paid. He told me he smuggled Jaime Lannister into Dorne. Now he paid.
Woman Off Camera – The Kingslayer did not go to Prince Doran?
OBARA – No, they rowed him ashore in secret.
Woman Off Camera – Why? He did not know. You must chose Doran’s way and peace or my way and war.
OBARA – When I was a child. Oberyn came to take me to court. I had never seen this man before yet he called himself my father. My mother wept and said you are too young and a girl. Oberyn tossed his spear at my feet and said girl or boy we fight our battles but the gods let us chose our weapons. My father pointed to the spear and to my mother’s tears. I made my choice long ago.
Notice that the “Woman Off Camera” says YOUR father and not OUR father. That means that the person who she is talking to is not a Sand Snake, but most likely someone else. Coupled with Obara’s change in demeanor between her first line and her next line, it is very possible that the Woman Off Camera bit could be Arianne Martell.
Of course, there is the distinct possibility that my reasoning is completely wrong, that these are just fake lines for the audition, or that someone messed up their line.
Judging by some of Tania Raymonde’s previous work, she is not shy and will be right at home on Game of Thrones if she is awarded the role.
The Antonio Marziale audition tape reveals (spoiler) a budding romance between Trystane Martell and Myrcella Baratheon.
A curosity observed on both audition tapes:
A pattern I’m starting to notice from the two auditions that have surfaced is that the actors are struggling to recapture Pedro’s Dornish accent. I mean, they’re not necessarily poorly done, but they don’t really line up with Oberyn’s. I’m interested in seeing how the entire new Dornish cast is going to handle it.
Pedro’s accent was a result of him trying to imitate his father’s Chilean accent. Both of the auditions I’ve seen have been from Americans. Maybe native Spanish speakers will have a more consistent grasp on the accent
On Game of Thrones:
Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin’s series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones. Filmed in a Belfast studio and on location elsewhere in Northern Ireland, Malta, Scotland, Croatia, Iceland, the United States and Morocco, it premiered on HBO in the United States on April 17, 2011. Two days after the fourth season premiered in April 2014, HBO renewed Game of Thrones for a fifth and sixth season.
The series, set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos at the end of a decade-long summer, interweaves several plot lines. The first follows the members of several noble houses in a civil war for the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms; the second covers the rising threat of the impending winter and the mythical creatures of the North; the third chronicles the attempts of the exiled last scion of the realm’s deposed dynasty to reclaim the throne. Through its morally ambiguous characters, the series explores issues of social hierarchy, religion, loyalty, corruption, civil war, crime, and punishment.
Game of Thrones has attracted record numbers of viewers on HBO and obtained an exceptionally broad and active international fan base. It received widespread acclaim by critics, although its frequent use of nudity, violence and sexual violence has attracted criticism. The series has won numerous awards and nominations, including a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Drama Series in all three seasons, a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Television Series – Drama, a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation in both Long Form and Short Form, and a Peabody Award. Among the ensemble cast, Peter Dinklage won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series and the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries or Television Film for his role as Tyrion Lannister.
