Sand Snake Chats GoT Finale, Star Wars, and Typecasting

-"What happens with the Sand Snakes is…extreme. Very extreme. So I’m really curious to see how people take it. I don’t know what else I can say!" says Henwick with a laugh. "Episode 10 sets the rest of the show on a very certain path. It’s a big move in Game of Thrones, and the Sand Snakes are a part of it."

-Did her own whip stunts.

-She's aware of the online hate for the Sand Snakes, but thinks their scene in the finale can turn it around. When she first got cast the first tweet she saw was a question about when we'd see her boobs, and the asshole tagged her dad in the tweet.

-Her dad's British, and her mom is Singaporean. Henwick acknowledges that she's been very lucky to get roles not definied by ethnicity which can't be said for other minorities. She doesn't want to contribute to typecasting when it comes to Asian roles.

-Considered moving to Singapore due to a lack of roles in the UK since as a mixed race woman, it can be hard to find one's place.

-Won't say anything about her rumored Star Wars VII role
