According to THR, Graham McTavish (“Outlander”) has joined the cast of “House of the Dragon”, a spinoff series of “Game of Thrones.”
“I’m having a lot of fun,” McTavish revealed to the site of his role. “We started touring recently. It’s a big project, so we’re still getting to know each other. They are adorable. It was great, but I can’t say a lot about it. I can’t say anything about the story, but it will involve a lot of dragons.
Recently, HBO released the first official images of the production.
The photos feature Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Prince Daemon Targaryen, as well as the sea serpent.
The cast will also include Olivia Cooke, who will play Alicent Hightower, the beautiful daughter of the Hand of the King; Emma D’Arcy will be Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, the eldest daughter of Viserys; Matt Smith will be Prince Daemon Targaryen, the king’s younger brother; Paddy Considine will be King Viserys; Fabien Frankel will be Ser Criston Cole, member of the guard of King Viserys I Targaryen; Rhys Ifans will be Otto Hightower, the hand of the king; Steve Toussaint will be Lord Corlys Velaryon, the sea serpent; Eve Best will be Princess Rhaenys Velaryon; and Sonoya Mizuno will be Mysaria, one of the most reliable (and unlikely) allies of Prince Daemon Targaryen, heir to the throne.
The story of ‘House of the Dragon’ takes place 300 years before the events of ‘Game of Thrones’ and will follow Daenerys’ ancestors as Casa Targaryen collapses. The plot is based on the novel “Fogo & Sangue”, by George RR Martin, who also enters as a creator alongside Ryan J. Condal.
Ten episodes have been ordered for the first season.
Check out the official synopsis of the book:
Centuries before the events of Game of Thrones, House Targaryen – the only dragonlord family to survive the destruction of Valyria – made their home in Dragonstone. The story of Fire & Blood begins with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and continues to tell of the generations of Targaryens who fought to keep their seat, until the Civil War that nearly destroyed their dynasty. .
What really happened during the dragon dance? Why was it so dangerous to visit Valyria after the destruction? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? These are some of the questions answered by this essential work, reported by a wise Maester from the Citadel.
