The prequel is coming.
Nearly a year after HBO revealed it would produce a Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon, the series has actually cast its prominent guy.
The reveal will occur 300 years prior to Game of Thrones and follow members of House Targaryen (house of Daenerys) over 10 episodes.
The network revealed on Monday, Oct. 5, that Paddy Considine will play King Viserys Targaryen, who is “chosen by the lords of Westeros to succeed the Old King, Jaehaerys Targaryen, at the Great Council at Harrenhal.”
His character is referred to as a “warm, kind, and decent man.” The network even more kept in mind, “Viserys just wants to continue his grandpa’s tradition, however as we have actually gained from Game of Thrones, excellent guys do not always produce excellent kings.”
Considine, 47, has actually formerly appeared on HBO’s The Third Day and The Outsider, in addition to on Peaky Blinders and How to Build a Girl. The Staffordshire local has actually won 2 BAFTA Awards.
