Brace yourselves. New "Game of Thrones" characters are coming. Nine of them, in total.
While we're still agonizingly far away from the premiere of season 5 of "Game of Thrones," HBO took to San Diego Comic-Con to inform us who will join the show when the series moves to Dorne. Most notably, Keisha Castle-Hughes from "Whale Rider" will play Oberyn's daughter Obara Sand; Oberyn's brother Doran will be played by Alexander Siddig, who portrayed Dr. Julian Bashir in the television series "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,"; and the wonderful Jonathan Pryce of "Brazil" and many other films will join the crew as High Sparrow.
You can watch all nine new crew members tell you just how excited they are to be on "Game of Thrones" in the video above. After you watch it, at least you'll be two minutes closer to the next season.
