Three more episodes are left before Game of Thrones Season 4 ends but fans of the show have already started speculating about Season 5 plot points.

Reports have suggested that a major part of the next season will be shot in Spain hinting that fans will be seeing a lot of Dorne.

A GoT Season 5 cast leak further confirms the rumours as most of the new characters seem to hail from the House Martell of Dorne.

Here is a role breakdown of the new characters fans can expect to see in Season 5 (via

Prince Doran Martell – Doran is described as the major new player this year, appearing in multiple episodes. The fifty-something prince uses a wheelchair, is reclusive and rules wisely.

Areo Hotah - Doran's personal bodyguard will appear throughout the season, assisting the prince with his duties.

The Sand Snakes, Oberyn Martell's bastard daughters (with ages ranging 18-25):

Obara Sand – The eldest and most athletic Sand Snake will have a major fight scene with a series regular character- not one who crosses her path in the books.

Nymeria Sand – Nymeria is described as "mixed race," with her father being the fairer Oberyn and her mother being darker skinned. The second oldest of these Sand Snakes, she's beautiful, emotional and very strong.

Tyene Sand - The youngest of the Sand Snakes that we meet uses her wits and seductive powers, and is less of a physical fighter than the other Sand Snakes. She is just as deadly as her sisters, however, but her weapon is poison.

High Sparrow - The books' pious head of a religious movement will be appearing in several episodes in season 5.

Septa Unella – The show is looking for a character actress to play the imposing and unrelenting septa who spends a lot of time with a major series character next year.

Maggy the Frog- A fortune teller in A Feast for Crows, she'll be appearing in one episode next year.

Lollys Stokeworth – Just last week in 'Mockingbird', Bronn announced his intention to marry Lollys, whom Tyrion considers "dimwitted." It looks like the sellsword will still be around next year.

The Waif – The strange child from the books that Arya encounters will likely be played by an older actress, one in her later teens.

According to GuardianLV, HBO has confirmed the list is legitimate.
