it says that blahblah is cast as trystane martell and is the heir of dorne ((they also aged him up like 10 yrs like why)) so maybe that is just wrong and they will add in arianne but here is the video of the new cast members

wow did d&d replace with a male character?
Anonymous

they replaced arianne martell who is the heir to dorne ((where oberyn was from)) and replaced her with a basic white bread male. arianne and others from dorne were described as POCs in the books and were all basically whitewashed in the show which is a whole separate problem

also D&D cut another character who is arguably one of the most interesting characters in the book IMO ((but I don’t want to spoil you)) because they said it wasn’t fit?

i love the show but it makes me angry that the producers have missed what makes the series so special, as that it tears apart the fantasy/medieval trope. They’ve turned it into everything that it is against. SMH, sorry for turning this into a rant

I feel like this photo set sums up the entire series.  The men talk about doing shit; the women get shit done.
