HBO reveals new photos of Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon – fr

Game of Thrones fans finally have some pics from the upcoming prequel Dragon house to be deepened. The HBO show is based on Game of Thrones author George RR Martin’s massive book Fire & Blood, which delves into the violent and fascinating history of the Targaryen family, hundreds of years before the arrival of Daenerys. Yes, this is the family with the whitish blonde hair, fierce dragon riding skills, and a penchant for marrying their own parents.

Emma D’Arcy plays Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Matt Smith is Prince Daemon Targaryen.

In a statement, HBO says production on the show has just started and will be available to stream on HBO Max in 2022. HBO shared a not very revealing photo in April, showing various members of the production team seated in front of computers. But these pictures are much better, showing actors in full costume and make-up.

Emma D’Arcy, pictured above, plays Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, a dragon rider and the king’s firstborn. But as with many royal families, the only problem is that she was not born male.

Matt Smith, known to many as the Eleventh Doctor of Doctor Who, and Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh in The Crown, plays Prince Daemon Targaryen, King Viserys’ younger brother and heir to the throne, an outstanding warrior and a dragon rider.

Steve Toussaint plays Lord Corlys Velaryon, The Sea Snake.

Steve Toussaint plays Lord Corlys Velaryon, aka a nautical adventurer known as the Sea Snake. He is the lord of House Velaryon, who claims the greatest navy in the world and is even richer than the Lannisters (remember that?).


Olivia Cooke plays Alicent Hightower and Rhys Ifans is Otto Hightower.

Olivia Cooke plays Alicent Hightower, daughter of Otto Hightower, the hand of the king and “the most comely woman of the Seven Kingdoms”.

Welsh actor Rhys Ifans plays Otto Hightower, a loyal and steadfast servant of his king and his kingdom. But he believes the greatest threat to the kingdom is the king’s brother, Daemon, and his position as heir to the throne.

The long-awaited show takes place before the events of Game of Thrones.


And with the emphasis on a family of dragon riders, you bet there will be dragons. HBO released a look at the dragons concept art back in december. In 2019, Sven Martin, one of the designers of the Game of Thrones dragons, told CNET fantastic creatures are actually based in part on real animals and the way they move.
