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.
What would be the point of including her if everything important about her is changed?

They can use anyone for sex scenes.

I wonder will the new actors playing Dornish characters imitate Pedro Pascal's Chilean accent or will they do their own thing?

Was the accent Pascal used for Oberyn actually Chilean or just a generic Hispanic accent? His natural accent is American.

I don't actually know. I know I must have seen him before because he's been in The Good Wife and I watch it, but I don't remember his role in it! I just assumed that this was his own accent in GOT.

If he was adopting that accent for Oberyn, then I imagine it must have been the decision of the showrunners to have him speak like that. If so, presumably the other Dornish characters will speak similarly.

Seems a lot of the cast have arrived or are starting to arrive in Belfast for filming. I'll have to do some stalking:

And they look like they could be related, don't they?

More than the whiteish people such as the Dane NCW, Brit Lena and American Dinklage, in fact.

Heck, what you really should be complaining about is Isaac Hempstead Wright playing the son of Sean Bean and Michelle Fairley. Two people with blue eyes producing a brown eyed child? C'mon.

He said he based it on his father's accent.

I don't see it. Hopefully a bit of makeup and an accent will help, but details haven't ever been the strong suit with this adaptation.

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.
I was wondering if they were going to merge Ellaria and Arianne's roles. Indira Varma is fantastic, and only using her for four episodes seems a bit silly. This'll help cut down on the sheer sprawl as well - it's someone the audience is already familiar with, and she has a clearly established motive for revenge.

I don't think genetics works the same in this world in general as it does in ours. In their world, the children of a parent "black of hair" should apparently also always be "black of hair", regardless of the other parent's hair color. Otherwise Jon Arryn and Ned Stark never would have found the blond hair of Cersei's children odd despite Robert's hair color and the information written in the History of the Great Houses of Westeros. I'm not a geneticist, but I'm pretty sure the hair thing is not true in our world.

Martin won't be writing an episode for season 5...because he has a book to write, apparently.

Huh, didn't see that coming.

^^^ Heh...methinks the reality and the pressure of finishing is finally catching up to him. Good to know that he's still working on it though...
