Brace yourselves, as fire and blood are coming back to HBO soon, with production on House of the Dragon ongoing. After much anticipation, the television network has debuted the first look at some of the protagonists of the upcoming Game of Thrones spinoff that will trace the history of the Targaryen clan. One of the photos features Matt Smith’s Prince Daemon Targaryen and Emma D’Arcy’s Princess Rhaenyra. According to previously released official descriptions, Daemon is a peerless warrior and a dragon rider, while his niece has only been described as having pure Valyrian blood. Both characters are tied to Paddy Considine’s King Viserys I, the brother of Daemon and father of Rhaenyra, who is ruling over the Seven Kingdoms 300 years before Game of Thrones.
You can check the first look at House of the Dragon in the gallery below.
HBO has also debuted the first photo of Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower and Olivia Cooke as Alicent, Otto’s daughter. In the story, Otto is the Hand of the King, while Alicent is “the most comely woman in the Seven Kingdoms” and possesses a “keen political acumen.” And last but not least, fans also got a closer look at Steve Toussaint’s Lord Corlys Velaryon, a.k.a. the Sea Snake. He is the most famed nautical adventurer in Westeros’ history. He will go as far as becoming Hand to Queen Rhaenyra Targaryen during the events that passed in Westeros’ history as the Dance of the Dragons.
House of the Dragon will premiere on HBO somewhere in 2022.
