That’s what “House of the Dragon” is about.
‘House of the Dragon’ is set almost 200 years before ‘Game of Thrones’, during a time when dragons are still ubiquitous and nearly every member of House Targaryen rides such a fire-breathing beast. The video above now shows off the many new cast members of the upcoming fantasy series.
Former ‘Doctor Who’ star Matt Smith is prominently featured as Prince Daemon Targaryen. He is the brother of ruler Viserys I – and actually appears as his logical successor on the Iron Throne.
Visery’s daughter, Princess Rhaenyra (Milly Alcock, later: Emma D’Arcy) owns best claim to the throne – if she weren’t a woman. Consequently, there is a conflict between her and Viserys’ son with his second wife Alicent Hightower (Emily Carey, later: Olivia Cooke). Alicent is a childhood friend of Rhaenyra, but later the two powerful women become bitter rivals.
The whole situation is complicated by other powerful players in the royal court. For example, Ser Otto Hightower (Rhys Ifans) is the father of Alicent – and at the same time the Hand of King Viserys. Hightower and Daemon Targaryen hate each other.
Sound complicated? Don’t worry, in “Game of Thrones” there were many actors, places and houses to overlook at the beginning. The HBO series “House of the Dragon” will certainly carefully build a captivating and immersive world here as well, in which viewers will gradually find their way.
