Game Of Thrones prequel keeps dragons, adds diversity

The prequel to Game Of Thrones is set to forge its own storytelling path, with a new set of characters and a more diverse team behind the scenes.

House Of The Dragon takes place two centuries before the events of the original series, which ended its hit eight-season run in May 2019. The 10-episode prequel begins on Monday (Aug 22) on HBO in Singapore and will be available to stream on HBO Go.

The story focuses on House Targaryen, made famous in Game Of Thrones by Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys and her fearsome dragons. But don’t expect House Of The Dragon to be a remake of Game Of Thrones, cast member Steve Toussaint said.

“It’s been done and they did it exceedingly well,” said Toussaint, who plays the very rich Lord Corlys Velaryon. “You know you’re in that world, but you’re seeing a different story, different characters, different motivations.”

Among the new faces in the clan is Prince Daemon Targaryen, played by Matt Smith. His villainous character is a lot more complex than he appears to be on first viewing, the actor said.

“I think the reason I’ve had fun is because he’s maybe not just a villain,” he said. “I think there’s actually a huge amount of fragility and depth and inner madness there. ... It's not black and white. It can go either way with Daemon at any point.”

Based on George RR Martin’s Fire And Blood, the drama was co-created by Martin and Ryan Condal, whose credits include the 2016-19 sci-fi drama Colony. Condal is an executive producer and co-showrunner with director Miguel Sapochnik, who brings his experience on Game Of Thrones to the prequel.
