Last week, during San Diego Comic Con, HBO announced that Star Trek: Deep Space Nine star Alexander Siddig would join the cast of Game of Thrones during a sizzle reel to promote the upcoming fifth season.
Siddig, known to Star Trek fans for playing Dr. Julian Bashir on DS9, will play Doran Martell, the ruling lord of Dorne and the older brother to Oberyn, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Doran Martell is described as even-tempered, but his subjects are waiting to see if that’ll remain true after his brother’s brutal death.
Other new cast members include Toby Sebastian as Trystane Martell, Nell Tiger Free as Myrcella Baratheon, DeObia Oparei as Areo Hotah, Enzo Cilenti as Yezzan, Jessica Henwick as Nymeria Sand, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers as Tyene Sand, Keisha Castle-Hughes as Obara Sand, and Jonathan Pryce as the High Sparrow.
The fifth season of Game of Thrones is set to begin airing on HBO in 2015.
