As the popular Game of Thrones season five finally ended last month, rumors have already been thrown in the air of what lay in store in the sixth season of the series. Rumors have started spreading about the process of casting for a whole new set of characters introduced by George RR Martin in his novel that will be complete early next year.
One of the many new characters introduced in the series, playing the role of a young priestess in her 20s and 30s, was described as “beautiful, intense and magnetic” by a fan site, Watchers on The Wall. Though the character was praised, not much could be revealed about her until the leakage of an audition video online.
The video clip that has been leaked online revealed reports of British actress Tehmina Sunny playing the character of a red priestess called Kinvara, who visits Tyrion Lannister and Varys in Mereen.
The last season would remind the viewers of Daenerys Targaryen, the chief contender to the Iron Throne, flying from the city on her dragon named Drogan. However, she never returned. The scene also gives an implication that either it might take her long to return the Lord of Light R’hllor has singled her out which lies amidst probabilities.
Herein lies an extract from the dialogue, first published on i09.com
Kinvara: “Her dragons bear flesh made out of fire. It is a gift given from the Lord of Light. And you have heard all about this before. It was on the long bridge of Volantis that the dragons do purify the thousands of non-believers by burning away their sins and flesh”.
Tyrion/Varys: “We avoid purifying many non-believers. The Mother of the dragon bears followers from many different faiths”.
Kinvara: “You are asking to worship and obey your Queen religiously. ”And when she is gone, you are asking her advisors to be obeyed and worshipped?”
Tyrion: “I’d sign in for being obeyed”.
Kinvara: “I will appoint priests. They will surely spread the word. Daenerys has been ordered to head the people to fight against darkness… for this war and the Great War which is about to arrive.
Varys: “It sounds amazing. A man named Stannis Baratheon was appointed as the Chosen One by one of your priestesses with a shining destiny. He attacked the King’s Landing and faced a sheer defeat by the man standing beside me. The last thing I heard was he was defeated again. This time defeated at Winterfell… and this time it was for good”.
