It's possible, though surprising. They've cut back on the Sand Snakes as well, although Ariadne and Quentyn do play considerably larger roles. I forget, did they cast Arys Oakheart yet?

Not that I've seen. He's an utterly worthless character, though and I wouldn't be surprised if they just left him out completely.

To be fair, most of the Sand Snakes didn't do anything - Obara, Nymeria, and Tyene are really the only ones they need.

But I'm pretty sure they can't cut Quentyn as
. However, depending on how they are adapting the books, maybe they won't get to his big scenes until Season 6?

Julian Bashir is Dorian Martell. Okay, so he's not clinically obese, but otherwise, this kicks lots of ass. As does the casting generally.

Doran wasn't obese. He just had gout.

Alexander Siddig and Jonathan Pryce? Bloody fantastic.

Trystane is the heir of Dorne. Ugh. So, they're definitely cutting Arianne.

Not really. None of the four younger Sand Snakes even appear "onscreen" in the books (until TWOW, when one of them will have a small role), so there would be no reason to cast actresses to play them. The only one who can really be said to be missing is Sarella, and that's obviously dependent on how-- and if-- the show is playing the Citadel storyline.

Considering the show's general attitude toward prophecy, I doubt they'd include Quentyn solely to make sense of the Mirri Maz Duur bit.

Brilliant casting with Siddig, he has the acting chops and he is perfect for the part - I actually pictured him as the perfect casting a year or two ago and its how I see him in the books.

Absolutely! I've wanted Siddig as Doran for a long, long time.

Hopefully Arianne isn't being excised. That would be a very poor move.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

They won't cut Arianne. She'll be there for sex scenes, if nothing else. More likely they've just made her younger than Trystane, or ignored the bit of lore about firstborn inheriting regardless of sex in Dorne. Can't risk confusing the "unsullied", after all.

Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

As much as I love Siddig, the apparent strategy of "just cast brownish people, no one will notice the difference." is a bit underwhelming.

Why is that more likely? The evidence for Arianne being cut has piled up recently. She's not in the casting announcement with the other Dornish characters (nor are the characters most associated with her alone in AFFC, like Arys Oakheart). The casting video for Tyene shows the plot to crown Myrcella coming together without Arianne being involved (and with Ellaria participating, instead of being a pacifist like the book). The casting video for Trystane shows him seemingly being involved in the plot as well. And now Trystane is referred to as the heir to Dorne, meaning he has no older siblings.
