Photos: HBO Offers Peek at New GOT Prequel Series ‘House of the Dragon’

It’s fair to say that at the ending of the “Game of Thrones” series, viewers were left wanting more from the storyline, as show creators appeared to cram in details and rush character development, among other issues. While the audience won’t get a redo for that show, they may get better results with an upcoming prequel series.

American cable company HBO released a series of photos on Wednesday, offering fans of the highly-watched “Game of Thrones” action-filled drama a sneak peek at the show’s upcoming prequel series, “House of the Dragon.”

The photos capture actors Emma D’Arcy, Olivia Cooke, Matt Smith, Steve Toussaint and Rhys Ifans in full costume, presumably at filming locations as the series is reportedly early on in its production.

A release issued by HBO notes that D’Arcy will portray Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Smith will take on the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen, the younger brother of King Viserys.
