HBO’s Game of Thrones prequel “House of the Dragon” has a killer cast, a new team of writers, and the blessing of the author of the iconic series of epic novels A Song of Ice and Fire, George R.R. Martin himself. Although, it will be a huge challenge for this upcoming show to live up to Game of Thrones’s legacy and make up for its certain disappointing final season. In February 2022, George R. R. Martin himself revealed that the show’s filming was finished, and it looked like the writing, the direction, and the acting were top-notch. In this article, we will reveal the House of Dragon release date.
The Cast of House of Dragon
The cast and crew are expected to be a very vast and talented set of artists. Some of the most famous actors selected for these worthy roles are:
1. Prince Daemon Targaryen, played by Matt Smith
Rhaenyra’s Uncle and King Viserys’ younger brother, Daemon, is the heir to the prestigious throne. Daemon is said to be the unequaled fighter and a natural rider of the dragons. Daemon is a pure-blooded dragon tamer. However, He cannot be seen as a good guy but rather as a sly and vicious veteran. He also carries his very own velaryon steel sword known as Dark Sister.
2. Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, played by Emma D’Arcy
Rhaenyra is also a natural dragon rider. She has a dragon named Syrax. As the first-born child of the King, Rhaenyra is a pure-blooded Velaryon. She is said to have the gift of being the ideal warrior and dragon rider but a curse of not being born as a man. As Daemon cannot have the throne for himself, he will assist his niece and his lover, Rhaenyra, to get the throne she deserves.
3. Lord Corlys Velaryon or “The Sea Snake” played by Steve Toussaint
Lord Corlys is the Lord of House Velaryon from Valeria’s bloodline. However, It is similarly old compared to the House Targaryen. The renowned explorer from Westeros got his name “The Sea Snake” because of his great adventures.
4. Alicent Hightower, played by Olivia Cooke
Otto Hightower’s daughter is the Hand of the King and is believed to be the most attractive woman across the Seven Kingdoms. She grew up in King’s understudy in Red Keep to be one of the most gracious and politically competitive highs.
5. Otto Hightower, played by Rhys Ifans
Ser Otto Hightower, the Master’s Hand, serves his King and his country with loyalty and priority. The King’s brother, Daemon, and his status as the successor to the throne are seen by the Hand as the biggest threat to the country.
