Starring cast introduce their characters in five new House of the Dragon featurettes, with tons of new footage!

Rhaenyra Daemon King's Landing

We’re in House of the Dragon premiere week already and you can tell! HBO has released five new videos, each of them focusing on one of the show’s main players, with their actors explaining what they’re all about: Emma D’Arcy as the older Princess Rhaenyra; Matt Smith as Prince Daemon; Paddy Considine as King Viserys I; Sonoya Mizuno as Mysaria; and Fabien Frankel as Ser Criston Cole.

As well as the actors providing us with insight into their characters, these videos feature a ton of never-before-seen footage. Especially Mysaria: this is the most from Sonoya Mizuno we’ve heard and the most we’ve seen of her character, by far!

With no dedicated videos for Lady Alicent, Ser Otto, Lord Corlys, or Lady Rhaenys, almost half of the starring cast is conspicuously absent, so it’s fair to assume four more videos are coming after this first batch… well, four or more! Personally, I hope it’s at least five and that way we can get an entire video of Graham McTavish introducing Ser Harrold of the Kingsguard! I love hearing that man talk.


  1. Cool!

    …..HBO really should’ve done these videos a month ago and made them public on YouTube. Because people are going to be confused by the bazillion characters. We’ve been through this before.

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  3. I’m interested to see how they age up Rhaenyra after watching the premiere that’s going to be hard to do given the other actors are not changing. This could cause confusion for the unsullied audience especially.

    Also I was skeptical about Matt Smith but his character was definitely the star of the premiere for me, he has charisma and gravitas on screen.

    Also is Myrsaria the same character that Daemon is with in the brothel?
