Jessica Henwick – Nymeria Sand
The more logical of the adult Sand Snakes, Nymeria Sand is named after the great warrior princess of Dorne, Princess Nymeria Martell. It has been said that she is at her least dangerous only when she is naked for otherwise, she is capable of hiding at least twelve daggers on her person even with just her silks.
You might have heard the name before as well because Arya Stark had named her direwolf ‘Nymeria’, after the famed princess. In the books, she is described as extremely beautiful and just as deadly as her bastard sisters. Due to her prowess, it is her who is sent to King’s Landing under Doran’s orders, to sit upon the Dornish seat on the council.
If you’re wondering as to where you might have seen her face before, don’t worry. Jessica Henwick is a quickly rising star as she has been marked the first East Asian actress to headline a British television show. She can also be seen as Colleen Wing in Netflix’s Iron Fist and The Defenders. And for those of you who might have missed it, but she also featured in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as Jessika Pava.
