The Game of Thrones cast is growing for season five. HBO announced several new additions to the world of Westeros at San Diego Comic-Con 2014. Here's the breakdown of the new Dorne figures coming to shake things up:

Alexander Siddig will play Doran Martell, the ruling lord of Dorne and the older brother to Prince Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal). Doran Martell is described as even-tempered and deliberate.

Toby Sebastian will play Trystane Martell, son to Prince Doran and heir to the Dorne. He's betrothed to Mycrella Baratehon as part of an alliance offered by Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance).

Nell Tiger Free will play Mycrella, the eldest child of Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy)…but in reality, her father is Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).

Jessica Henwick will play Nymeria "Nym" Sand, the second eldest of Prince Oberyn's daughters.

Rosabell Laurenti Sellers will play Tyene Sand, another daughter of Prince Oberyn by Ellaria Sand, his last mistress. She's described as "fiercer than she looks" and is known for having twin daggers.

Keisha Castle-Hughes is Obara Sand, a "fearsome warrior" and daughter of Prince Oberyn.

DeObia Oparei joins the cast as Areo Hotah, the captain of Doran Martell's palace guard.

Enzo Cilenti has been cast as Yezzan, once an extremely wealthy slave trader before Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) outlawed the trade.

Rounding out the cast is Jonathan Pryce as the High Sparrow, a devout man who went to King's Landing to serve the poor and quickly developed a large following.

Season five will premiere in 2015.
