The 22-year-old, who was born to a Singaporean mother and a British father, will be playing Nymeria Sand, the second daughter of the late fan-favorite Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal). This season, she and her sisters set off to Westeros to seek revenge for the death of their father. Her character, in particular, is a badass. Not only is she cunning and calculated, but she also brandishes a whip (kind of like Indiana Jones).

 

If you've been waiting with bated breath for the show to return, you're in luck. Game of Thrones airs in the Philippines at the same time as the U.S.! The fifth season premieres on Monday, April 13 at 9 a.m. on HBO Asia. There will also be a same-day encore at 9 p.m.
