Matt Smith reveals that he is looking forward to riding the dragons in the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel titled House of the Dragon.
The series consisting of a total of 10 episodes is based on George R.R. Martin‘s novel named Fire & Blood, which delves into the deep history of GoT’s House Targaryen. The epic Game of Thrones concluded its explosive eight-season run in the month of May of the year 2019.
Daenerys Targaryen, whose role is played by Emilia Clarke is one of the main competitors for the iron throne on Game of Thrones, up until the controversial ending of the series.
She stakes her claim to power based on birthright, despite the fraught relationship of the princess with the royal family that sold her out. Also, she believes that her Targaryen blood makes her the very rightful heir to the highest seat in Westeros.
Dany gains immense support for her great cause when she miraculously emerges from a huge fire having hatched three dragon eggs, which she trains and also raises as if they were her children.
House Targaryen is said to have a really special connection to the creatures. History tells us that Aegon Targaryen conquered the Seven Kingdoms with their help, and they appear on the family crest.
Game of Thrones Prequel | Smith Looking Forward To Fly Dragons?
During a recent Q&A session with GalaxyCon, House of the Dragon cast member named, Matt Smith alluded to the possibility that his character will be riding dragons in the prequel.
Although Smith does not definitively reveal in the interview whether or not he will be mounting any airborne reptiles, the actor seems to know a bit more than he is letting on.
Based on his coy delivery, the viewers can probably expect to see Smith on dragonback sometime during the series. Smith may be an award-winning, Emmy-nominated actor, but something about this performance is not all that believable.
Without saying too much, I’m looking forward to riding a few dragons if I get to. I mean, I don’t know. Who knows?
Considering the title of the show, it’s safe to expect HBO will deliver on the Chekhov’s dragon it promises with more than a little reptilian action.
