First Look: ‘Game of Thrones’ TV prequel ‘House of the Dragon’

“Game of Thrones” was a global phenomenon for HBO. The network is developing several “Game of Thrones” TV prequels, including “House of the Dragon,” which is set 200 years before the original series.

Who’s in the cast of “House of the Dragon”?

Based on George R.R. Martin’s 2018 novel “Fire & Blood”, the series tells the story of the House of Targaryen and stars Emma D’Arcy, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Paddy Considine and Rhys Ifans among its ensemble cast.

Who will they play?

According to HBO…

  • Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen. Viserys was chosen by the lords of Westeros to succeed the Old King, Jaehaerys Targaryen, at the Great Council at Harrenhal. A warm, kind, and decent man, Viserys only wishes to carry forward his grandfather’s legacy, but as we’ve learned from Game of Thrones, good men do not necessarily make for great kings.
  • Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower. She’s the daughter of Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King, and the most comely woman in the Seven Kingdoms. She was raised in the Red Keep, close to the king and his innermost circle; she possesses both a courtly grace and a keen political acumen.
  • Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen. The king’s first-born child. She is of pure Valyrian blood, and she is a dragonrider. Many would say that Rhaenyra was born with everything…but she was not born a man.
  • Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen. The younger brother of King Viserys and heir to the throne, Daemon is a peerless warrior and a dragonrider who possesses the true blood of the dragon. But it is said that whenever a Targaryen is born, the gods toss a coin in the air…
  • Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King, who loyally and faithfully serves both his king and his realm. As the Hand sees it, the greatest threat to the realm is the king’s brother, Daemon, and his position as heir to the throne.

“House of the Dragon” is due for release in 2022.
