HBO brings new ones House of the Dragon Episode 6 footage reveals the many rearrangements that lie ahead. After premiering just a month ago, House of the Dragon begins about 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones at a time when competing for control of the Iron Throne is as controversial as ever. Some key players in the latest Westerosi conflict include the ailing King Viserys Targaryen, Prince Daemon, Princess Rhaenyra, Queen Alicent Hightower, Ser Otto Hightower, Lord Corlys Velaryon, and Ser Criston Cole.
Paddy Considine leads the House of the Dragon toss side by side doctor whoMatt Smith, Milly Alcock, Emily Carey, Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint and Fabien Frankel. In the case of Alcock and Carey, they played the pivotal roles of Rhaenyra and Alicent respectively, charting the characters’ early movements leading up to the legendary conflict the Dance of the Dragons. It has long been known that halfway through House of the Dragon season 1, a 10-year time jump would occur and these younger actors, along with others, would be recast. utilities, House of the Dragon trailers, clips and images from episode 6 have revealed some of the older actors who will be joining the show in the next episode.
A few days before the premiere, HBO is releasing several new House of the Dragon episode 6 images. The photos show a glimpse of the many old recasts to come, headlined by Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra and Olivia Cooke as Queen Alicent, although there are plenty of other new faces to see. View all images below:
Besides Rhaenyra and Alicent, Prince Aegon is one of the biggest players above who will play a crucial role in the Dance of the Dragons. As the firstborn son of King Viserys and Queen Alicent, Aegon arguably has a stronger claim to the throne than Rhaenyra and poses a direct threat to the princess. As seen in the image above, the teenage version of Aegon is played by Ty Tennant (son of doctor who‘s David Tennant), after being seen as a toddler in previous episodes. Viserys and Alicent’s daughter has also aged and Evie Allen is now taking over the role of Princess Helaena. Rhaenyra’s husband, Ser Laenor Velaryon, has also been recast as John Macmillan, while Prince Daemon is married to Laena Velaryon, who will now be played by Nanna Blondell. These rearrangements not only help to move House of the Dragon forward, but they also give an idea of who could become major players in the brewing conflict.
In addition to the various rearrangements, House of the Dragon Episode 6 images reveal some new young characters born within a 10-year time jump. They are Daemon and Laena’s two daughters, Baela (Shani Smethurst) and Rhaena (Eva Ossei-Gerning). Just as audiences got to know many of the show’s characters and the actors who played them, House of the Dragon now rearranges a few lead roles and throws new characters into the mix as well. It will be interesting to see how the public will react to them. The good news is that once viewers get used to the 10-year time shift, there won’t be any major time jumps anymore. House of the Dragon for the foreseeable future.
House of the Dragon releases new episodes on HBO on Sunday.
