Game of Thrones actress Jessica Henwick reveals why fans didn't like the Sand Snakes

After the eventful episode 2 of Game of Thrones season 7, ‘Stormborn’, fans had some interesting reactions to everything that happened. Aside from all the impressive developments like the setup of Jon and Dany’s meeting in the upcoming episode, we saw Euron Greyjoy attack the Iron fleet and take Yara captive along with Ellaria and Tyene Sand. Nymeria and Obara weren’t lucky as they were brutally murdered by Euron, which elicited an expected reaction from the viewers. A lot of people were relieved to see that the Sand Snakes were no longer going to be around on Game of Thrones.

Actress Jessica Henwick, who played Nymeria Sand, revealed the reason why people weren’t huge fans of the Sand Snakes, in an interview withEW.

“It was always acknowledged that it was going to be very hard to give each of us a storyline,”Henwick said. “They had to introduce three characters all at once and differentiate them. When you’re limited to an introduction of two lines per character and there are four characters in the scene — during our introduction scene in season five — it’s hard to create a lasting impression. You kind of have to shove a character down the audience’s throat and Game of Thrones’ success is in its multifaceted characters. At the time it was definitely frustrating feeling like there’s so much potential here, and a lot of the stuff that we shot didn’t make the final cut. It was hard. But overall, given the size of the character, I’ve been very happy with how it’s come out. It is what it is. There’s nothing I can say, really.”

There’s some basis in what Jessica has said about fans not liking the Sand snakes. Game of Thrones comes with a number of different characters who have much more important and engaging storylines that capture our attention. Though in the books Dorne has a very interesting part to play along with the characters being pretty appealing to read about, not everything from the books has been incorporated into the show for obvious reasons. Dorne and it’s characters haven’t been given as much importance on the show, at least not until later seasons, so the dislike of that plot is no surprise.
