“The lords of Westeros chose Viserys to succeed the Old King, Jaehaerys Targaryen, at the Great Council at Harrenhal,” an official statement stated. “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.” Cooke, famous for her roles in Vanity Fair and Bates Motel, is set to act as Alicent Hightower, the daughter of Otto Hightower – the Hand of the King. “She was raised in the Red Keep, close to the king and his innermost circle; she possesses courtly grace and a keen political acumen,” HBO said.
Also, Smith will play Prince Daemon Targaryen – King Viserys’ younger brother. “Daemon is a peerless warrior and a dragon rider who possesses the true blood of the dragon,” a statement reads. “But it is said that the gods toss a coin in the air…” Actress Emma D’Arcy, famous for roles in Wanderlust and Truth Seekers, is Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen – the king’s first-born child.” She is of pure Valyrian blood, and she is a dragon rider,” HBO states. “Many would say that Rhaenyra was born with everything…but she was not born a man.”
Actor Fabien Frankel has also been cast as a member of King Viserys I Targaryen’s Kingsguard, who helped win the civil war. George R.R. Martin, on his blog, said: “He is the common-born son of the steward to the Lord of Blackhaven,” Martin wrote. “He has no claim to lands or titles, and all he has is his honour and skill with sword and lance. Martin added, “He is a challenger, a champion, cheered by the commons, beloved of the ladies. He is a lover (or is he?), a seducer (or is he?), a betrayer (or is he?), a breaker of hearts and a maker of kings … Welcome to Westeros, Fabien. And do keep that sword sharp.”
House of the Dragon: do we have a trailer?
We got the first trailer of the House of Dragons in October 2021. It was soundtracked to a slow version of the classic game of Thrones theme, and we also saw a glimpse of several new characters and a little bit of the plot of the upcoming series. The design of the show is based on the iron throne.
What is House of the Dragon revolving around?
Well, the Dance of Dragons will be the focus of the prequel. The war started when they wanted the ion throne from different branches of the Targaryen family. Thrones author George RR Martin stated: “For what it’s worth, those who have read Fire & Blood will realise it contains enough materials for a dozen shows.
“I can say that there will be dragons. Everyone else has said that, so why not me?”
However, we do not have official details regarding the plot in adapting. But we can guess that the entire series will be focusing on the Targaryen family. Casey Bloys, president of HBO programming, said, “The Game of Thrones universe is rich with stories.
We look forward to exploring the origins of House Targaryen and the earlier days of Westeros along with Miguel, Ryan and George.”
While speaking to Telegraph, Cooke said: “I wouldn’t feel comfortable in being a part of anything that has just egregious graphic violence towards women for no reason whatsoever, just because they want it to be tantalising in a way that gets viewers.
“I was lucky enough to read the script before, and it has changed a lot from the first few seasons (of Game of Thrones). I don’t think they’d be in their right minds to include any of that anymore.”
George RR Martin, who wrote the original A Song of Ice and Fire book series that Game of Thrones is based on, is the creator of this show. He, along with Ryan Condal, works in it. “[The series] has a script and a bible, and both are terrific, first-rate, exciting,” Martin said. “They’re the work of Ryan Condal.”
“He’s a helluva strong writer, and a huge fan of A Song of Ice and Fire, Dunk & Egg, and Westeros in general. I’ve loved working with him, and if the Seven Gods and HBO are kind, I hope to keep on working with him for years to come on this new successor show.”
