In the trailer, viewers are introduced to the backlash Princess Rhaenyra receives after being named heir. “Men would sooner put the realm to the torch,” someone says, “than see a woman ascend the Iron Throne.” Another person adds, “History does not remember blood.”
Other House of the Dragon cast members include Olivie Cooke (Ready Player One) as Alicent Hightower, Eve Best (Nurse Jackie) as Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill) as Otto Hightower, Sonoya Mizuno (Crazy Rich Asians) as Mysaria and Fabien Frankel (Last Christmas) as Ser Criston Cole. The series is being helmed by showrunners Ryan Condal (Colony) and Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones), along with GoT author George R.R. Martin.
House of the Dragon is based on Martin's book, Fire and Blood, and it looks like we’re going to see a lot of both.
