LOS ANGELES, July 25 (UPI) --Considering the clip at which Game of Thrones kills off its characters, it's no surprise the series had to announce the addition of several new actors to the cast for Season 5.

There are a couple bigger names joining the HBO series' cast, including Whale Rider star and Academy Award-nominated Keisha Castle-Hughes.

The 24-year-old actress is slated to play Obara Sand, an illegitimate daughter of the spectacularly departed Oberyn Martell.

Castle-Hughes will be joined by actors playing other members of the Martell claim, including Alexander Siddig, playing Doran Martell, Oberyn's older brother.

Jessica Henwick and Rosabell Laurenti Sellers plays Oberyn's younger illegitimate daughters, Nym Sand and and Tyrene Sand. Toby Sebastian will play Oberyn's son and heir, Trystane Martell.

Jonathan Pryce joins the show as High Sparrow, DeObia Oparei will be Areo Hotah and Enzo Cilenti will be Yezzan.

Nell Tiger Free joins the cast as the second actress to play Myrcella Baratheon, the oldest daughter of Cersei Lannister and Robert Baratheon.

Beastie Boys mural to commemorate 'Paul's Boutique'

NEW YORK, July 25 (UPI) --An artist is painting a mural on the side of the building depicted on the cover of the Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the album.

Danielle Mastrion is painting the mural at Wolfnights, a sandwich shop that occupies the New York City building shown on the cover of the band's second album.

At the time of the album's release, the shop was known as Lee's Sportswear.

Mastrion will begin work on the project at 11 a.m. Saturday, Rolling Stone reported.

The project was spearheaded by LeRoy McCarthy, a fan of the band who had tried to have the intersection outside the building renamed Beastie Boys Square.
