Game Of Thrones Prequel House Of The Dragon Premiere Set For August


Matt Smith plays Prince Daemon Targaryen, brother of Viserys and the next in line to the throne. Touted to be an unmatched warrior and someone made notable by dragon blood, Smith’s character sounds like a true Targaryen — and with that distinction, a real harbinger of fiery royal conflict. The rest of the cast includes Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower, Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon (The Sea Snake), and Eve Best in the role of Princess Rhaenys Targaryen. As one would expect from a show of this scale, “House of the Dragon” has a generous supporting cast to go with it.

The show is highly anticipated and will debut a month ahead of another hotly anticipated property, “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.” Last month, Martin wrote on his blog that he has seen unfinished scenes from “House of the Dragon,” and he sounded pretty happy with it. “I have seen rough cuts of a few of them, and I’m loving them,” he wrote. Martin, who is credited as a co-creator and executive producer, praised the holy trifecta of acting, directing, and writing that delivered the show. A second season hasn’t been officially confirmed, but will likely be announced soon after the series’ streaming debut.
