October 5th, 2021 by Marc Comments

Ooooooh… we have our unexpected first look at Game of Thrones prequel series, House of the Dragon.

House of the Dragon stars Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower and Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, “a peerless warrior and a dragon rider who possesses the true blood of the dragon” his character is the young brother of Paddy Considine’s King Viserys.

Recently at GalaxyCon’s virtual Doctor Who Q&A, Smith said of his role: “I think it’ll be a really exciting cast, I think it’s a wonderful legacy to be part of and it’s a great part. And without saying too much, I’m just sort of looking forward to riding a few dragons…if I get to.

“Who knows what goes on in this role, but yeah look – I’m just looking forward to getting started and I think, hopefully, with the people involved, it could be really exciting.”

We know the series will focus on the Targaryens and will most likely have more magic, dragons etc than the original series but there’s not a lot more known at this stage.

Whatever the case, come 2022, we’ll be first in line in front of our screens to see what happens next (em, previously) and hoping beyond hope that this new adventure can somehow fix everything that went so very wrong in Game of Thrones’ final season.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
