Always thought about light skinned africans, like a variatino from somewhat- indian like color skin to northern africa, but different in culture.

Yeah, not going to happen. I'd like to think for GoT, actors are hired for their acting ability moreso than their looks.

But I much more see Tyene as nearly scandinavian: pale, platine blonde, blue eyes... strange to see that she must have taken all from her mother. ^^

A tall, strong, not very handsome, musculated and sulky woman one for Obara.
A beautiful tall, dark-haired, dark-eyed, and feline woman for Lady Nym.
A innocent-looking blonde girl, seemingly shy and quiet woman for Tyene.
A small young dark-skined and curly-haired woman for Sarella.
By casting them according to the books, they are already damned different... and if they can find actresses with similar eyes and the V on the forehead, it would be perfect.

Sand Snakes: I really think there should be onwe sand snake on television... then money can be spent on other things and to much faces only make things confusing.

Sarella / The Sphinx may turn important too, so, I'd say that at least the 4 older might be in the show... and maybe one from Ellaria.

Well Persia isn't a desert. FYI, Persians and Arabs are not the same. Persians can sometimes actually look "white".
As for my thoughts, since Dorne is quite obviously based on Spain, particularly the Muslim part, I was always thinking North African/tanned Hispanic for the salty Dornishmen. The mountain Dornishmen - just plain old white people.

That's even though I tend to think of Dorne as a more Spanish / Sicilian type of place.
But in terms of having both the witty tongue and physical/combat capabilities that I expect from the character Oberyn, I think he could do it.
(And if Alayaya in the book somehow became Ros in the show, I'm sure this is less of a stretch.)

And I'm sold on Sarah for Arianne btw. She's perfect.
