Why is this new Game of Thrones S3 poster only in Dutch?

A few days ago, HBO released a slew of twelve character posters for the upcoming third season of its highly anticipated hit fantasy series Game of Thrones. Now, we have another character poster that wasn’t included in the first batch because it's   ... in Dutch.

The new character poster seen above is that of Stannis Baratheon's (Stephen Dillane) Red Priestess Melisandre, played by Carice Van Houtena Dutch actress.

As you can see, the poster is in Dutch. (Thank you, Google translate!) This poster wasn’t released along with the previous twelve and it’s also nowhere to be seen on HBO’s official Game of Thrones page, where the twelve character posters are all available for download as wallpapers.

So, does this mean that this specific character poster was only released in Dutch for the Dutch because of the actresses’ Dutch heritage? Now that’s rather intriguing, don't you think?

Game of Thrones returns to HBO on March 31 at 9pm.
