British actress Indira Varma is set to join the cast of the upcoming Disney+ Star Wars series centering on Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The actress, most known to global audiences as the femme fatale Ellaria Sand from “Game of Thrones”, reportedly will join Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christiansen – both who will be reprising their role as the titular character and Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader respectively.
Although the production is still mum about the details of Varma’s character, fans are speculating that she could be playing either Sith assassin and longtime Obi-Wan foe, Asajj Ventress, or Mandalorian Duchess Satine Kryze.

“The Mandalorian” veteran Deborah Chow is set to direct.
Varma is currently a series regular on ABC’s legal drama, “For Life” and has starred in several other series including Amazon’s “Carnival Row” and HBO’s “Rome”.
