Only a few days after we reported that Graham McTavish was spotted in Cornwall on the set of House of the Dragon, McTavish has confirmed that he is, indeed, a member of the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel’s cast and offered the very vaguest and non-spoilery of teases.
Well this was unexpected! Though production on House of the Dragon is still very much in progress, HBO has deigned to gift us with official images of the series’ main characters!
Production on House of the Dragon is coming along nicely, according to new photos which offer us a peek at costumes as well as a first glimpse of Steve Toussaint as Corlys Velaryon!
We knew production on House of the Dragon was beginning, but I admit I wasn’t expecting photos to roll in this fast!

Pre-production activity for something being filmed by Warner Bros. — the company that owns HBO — has been taking place in Cornwall this week, including on St. Michael’s Mount, an island that features a 12th century castle. One of the structures being built there is a huge stone archway that looks quite Thrones-esque, and when CornwallLive’s photographer captured the initial shots zoomed in on the top of the arch, something very intriguing was visible:
