House of the Dragon has added two more faces to its cast in recurring roles. Milly Alcock and Emily Carey are the new members who are joining the cast of the Game of Thrones prequel series.
They will be playing the young versions of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Alicent Hightower.
Milly Alcock will play Young Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen. She's the king’s first-born child, of pure Valyrian blood, and she is a dragon rider. Many would say that Rhaenyra was born with everything, but she was not born a man. Emma D’Arcy is playing the present-day Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen.
Emily Carey will play Young Alicent Hightower, the daughter of Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King, and the most beautiful woman in the Seven Kingdoms. Alicent was raised in the Red Keep, close to the king and his innermost circle; she possesses both a courtly grace and a keen political acumen. Olivia Cooke is playing the present-day Alicent Hightower.
The cast of the series also includes Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen, Fabien Frankel as Ser Criston Cole, Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon, Eve Best as Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower, Sonoya Mizuno as Mysaria, and Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen.
Based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood, the series will tell the story of House Targaryen and take place 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones. Miguel Sapochnik and Condal will be showrunners, and they will also serve as executive producers along with Martin, Vince Gerardis, Sara Lee Hess, and Ron Schmidt.
House of the Dragon is coming to HBO and HBO Max in 2022. The first season of the show got a 10-episode order from HBO.
