House Of The Dragon, adapted from George R.R. Martin’s novel Fire & Blood, is set 200 years before the events of Game Of Thrones. Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy, Olivia Cooke, and Rhys Ifans star in the show, which depicts a succession war among House Targaryen. One of Game of Thrones’ main cast members has finally spoken out about HOD.
Kit Harington, of Game of Thrones, has spoken out about the new prequel House Of The Dragon. He said that the team behind the show has done a “fantastic” job. At the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) this weekend, Harington, who played Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, was interviewed by Entertainment Tonight Canada about his opinions on House Of The Dragon. “I’m really enjoying it,” he said.
My friend Miguel [Sapochnik] show-run it, so I’m really enjoying it.
I think they’ve done a fantastic job. It’s a weird one to start a whole new show in the same kind of realm and to make it its own thing. I think they’ve really done that.
Early reviews for the show have been positive. The premiere of the show broke HBO records, reaching over 10 million viewers. The Game of Thrones prequel has also broken viewing records in the United Kingdom, becoming Sky’s biggest US drama launch and the most watched Sky Atlantic premiere in history.
HBO renewed the show for a second season shortly after the first episode debuted last month. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
