Ellaria Sand is taking a trip to Tatooine, with Game of Thrones’ Indira Varma joining Disney+’s Obi-Wan series. Deadline reports that Varma, who played Ellaria in seasons four through seven of the HBO series, has signed onto an unrevealed role in the upcoming Star Wars show.

Varma, who most recently appeared in For Life for ABC, joins a cast that includes Ewan McGregor as the titular character and Hayden Christensen, reprising his role as Darth Vader.

The Obi-Wan show is expected to take place between the events of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope. Deborah Chow, who directed two episodes of The Mandalorian season one, is on board to direct the series. It is set to start filming this spring.
