Season five only just wrapped up, but rumours are already spreading about what the sixth season of Game of Thrones will have in store.
However, before we continue, this article CONTAINS SPOILERS.
Casting for the new season has already started with one hopeful apparently being discovered by fansite Watchers on the Wall. The website describes the young priestess who is in her 20s or 30s as “beautiful, intense and magnetic”.
This was all very vague until a video popped up online reportedly showing British actress Tehmina Sunny auditioning for the role of a red priestess named Kinvara. The clip was quickly removed, but can probably still be found on YouTube.
Here’s a chunk of the dialogue courtesy of i09.com:
Kinvara: “Her dragons are fire made flesh. A gift from the Lord of Light. But you’ve heard all of this before, haven’t you? On the Long Bridge of Volantis? The dragons purify nonbelievers by the thousands, burning their sins and flesh away.”
Tyrion/Varys: “Ideally, we’d avoid purifying many non-believers. The Mother of the Dragon has followers from many different faiths.”
Kinvara: “You want your queen to be worshiped and obeyed. And while she’s gone, you want her advisors to be worshiped and obeyed.”
Tyrion: “I’d settle for obeyed.”
Kinvara: “I will summon mummers and appoint priests. They will spread the word. Daenerys has been sent to lead the people against the darkness … for this war, and the Great War yet to come.”
Varys: “That sounds excellent. A man named Stannis Baratheon was appointed as the Chosen One by one of your priestesses. He too had a glorious destiny. He attacked King’s Landing, and was soundly defeated by the man standing beside me. Last I heard, he’d been defeated again. This time at Winterfell … and this time for good.”
If you watch the show, then you’ll know by now that season vice ended in typical WTF fashion when Jon Snow met his brutal end on his return to The Wall.
And I’m sure they’ll have plenty more in store for us when season six hits our screens next year.
