The Bard of Banefort Posted April 22 Author Share Posted April 22 (edited) Chapter 18: Originally there were going to be four Sand Snakes: Obara, Nymeria, Tyene, and Sarella. After debating between keeping Nymeria or Sarella, they chose Nymeria. Sending Jaime to Dorne was Cogman's idea. In a concession that will make someone who frequents this site very happy, D&D did seem driven at least in part by a desire to get the most screentime they could out of Indira Varma. There are a lot of weird moments in this chapter where one of the suits will say the director wasn't happy with the scene, then the director will say that they don't remember being unhappy but that it rained a lot that day, then one of the Sand Snakes will say they don't recall there being that much rain, just some drizzle. The nipples on Obara's breastplate had to be digitally removed. The fight scene was supposed to be shot at night, but they couldn't get permission to film at the palace at night. The stunt doubles also dropped out at the last minute, so they could only use what choreography they actresses themselves could do. Not mentioned: Benioff’s creepy comment comparing Dorne to Brazil. There were more scenes in S5 that were eventually cut. Edited April 22 by The Bard of Banefort Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
