Game of Thrones actress Rosabell Sellers (Tyene Sand) auditions to play Death in Netflix’s Sandman

Rosabell Sellers a.k.a. Tyene Sand of Game of Thrones auditions for The Sandman

It has been almost a year since Game of Thrones ended its glorious run. It is never easy to remember all the details of a show which lasted a decade. But we trust the fans of epic saga to remember each and every critical detail of the show. In a series comprising of many memorable moments, many characters emerged and left their mark on the show. The credit has to go to the actors who no matter the size of their role made their mark.

The role of Tyene Sand was a similar one. The role although small was played with aplomb by actor Rosabell Sellers. Now she has the chance to be part of something similarly cool and we are very excited for her.

As per Epicstream, Sellers has auditioned for the role of ‘Death’ in Sandman. It is an upcoming Netflix series that is still in a very early stage, based on the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman. The casting is yet to be done and auditions are in full flow. In a video that recently surfaced, Sellers was reading the lines of the character of Death speaking to ‘dream’. Unfortunately, that video clip is now private on Vimeo but it can be confirmed that lines were directly taken from the comic on which the show will be based upon.

The character of Death was introduced in 1989 in the eighth edition of the comic The Sandman. Created by Neil Gaiman and Mike Dringenberg, the character became hugely popular with youngsters. In fact, the dressing sense of the character inspired many fashion senses during the time.

Coming back to the Thrones, Sellers’ character, as the fans of HBO Blockbuster would remember, played a pivotal role in the murder of Myrcella Baratheon. Although her character itself faced a brutal fate in the hands of Cersei Lannister, it was not before she had done a lot of damage.

Well, we are quite excited for Sellers and hope she gets the part. The popularity of her potential role can be gauged from the fact that Death has been spun out already into the two solo series Death: The High Cost of Living and Death: The Time of Your Life.

As of now, very little is known about the project except that Netflix plans to base each season on one volume of the book. With everything at a halt at the moment due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we will have to wait a bit longer for more details.

George R. R. Martin talks about House of The Dragon Teaser Trailer

House of The Dragon’s first teaser trailer is finally here! The teaser was released by HBO at the end of the HBO Max European launch event and it features a voiceover by Matt Smith who plays the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen. It broke the internet as soon as it was released, and fans are going crazy over the accuracy and detail shown in the teaser. It was watched by over 10 million viewers in less than three days of its launch! And George R. R. Martin has something to say about the teaser trailer.

Martin wrote on his blog Not a Blog:

Yes, I know, most of you have already seen this. (What can I say? I am busy. Juggling so many balls, so many projects, posting stuff on my Not A Blog is not my highest priority, so things may always be a little bit behind here).

For the handful who have been off the internet the past few days, however… HBO has released the first official teaser/trailer for HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. Here ’tis.

Enjoy.

(And yes, I love it too. Ryan and Miguel and their team are kicking ass and taking names).”

Looking at the current speed of production, we can hope Martin’s earlier prediction about the prequel’s release will come to fruition. What do you think about House of The Dragon? Talk to us in the comments below!

A young Alicent Hightower takes over the Iron Throne in Leicester Square

The filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is progressing really smoothly, besides minor delays everything’s looking good for HBO’s high priority project. HBO recently dropped the first official teaser trailer for House of The Dragon, and fans are going crazy about it. That being said, we know that filming for the prequel show will be starting in Spain the next week, and the cast and crew members are gathering up at the Castle of La Calahorra.

The actors are taking a small break from their busy schedule before the shoot resumes, and it seems Emily Carey, who will be playing a young Alicent Hightower in the show is having fun with a replica of the Iron Throne.

Carey recently posted a picture on her official Twitter account. She seems to be enjoying a quiet day at Leicester Square, and her preferred choice of furniture is the Iron Throne replica. She wrote in the caption, “Found this chair in Leicester Square (wearing green was coincidental).” #HOTD #HouseofTheDragon #AlicentHightower

Do you think the future Queen of Westeros was foreshadowing a scene from House of The Dragon? Wearing green was coincidental? Maybe, maybe not. Only time will tell.
