Re: "ROME"
Ellaria Sand is the natural (that is to say, bastard) daughter of Lord Uller of Hellholt. The Ullers are "sandy Dornish" and generally darker than the "salty Dornish" like the Martells. So this is perfectly consistent with the books.

More importantly, however, Indira Varma is an amazing and talented actress. THAT's what matters. She will be a great Ellaria Sand.

And with that, I have said all I said about this subject. I am all in favor of diversity... in my books, in the TV show, and especially in the real world... but when the debate goes beyond race (itself a dubious and artificial construct) and ethnicity to debate the precise shade of an actor's skin, that's too damn far.

Re: "ROME"
Hello,
I love the casting and she will portray a great Ellaria Sands. It's a fantasy world and the casting department has done a great job since the 1st season and I trust they will continue too.
Not even sure where this became an issue. As I read the books the description is there , but its more about the characters development and their involvement in the game. are they bystanders, are they pawns,or are they players/contenders.
I'm just reading your interviews and blog and shake my head when see this come up AGAIN and you have to comment again. It must be frustrating because its not about the color of the skin it's about the character involvement and actors skills portraying your characters.. Which they have done amazing.
Thank you for many hours of reading and entertainment. Love the world of Ice and Fire. Hope to se you in Boston on The Winds of Winter book tour,
Patrick
