No More Deadline
Based on Martin’s Fire & Bloodthe series takes place 200 years before the events of game of thrones and tells the story of House Targaryen. The series stars Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, Sonoya Mizuno and Rhys Ifans. As expected, the trailer promises plenty of swordplay, blonde hair, and the dubious claim that a “woman would never inherit the Iron Throne.” The dragons are back, of course, but you don’t want to miss the medieval egg cooker that cooks up the next hellfire-eater.
Martin is due to appear with the cast on Saturday at Dragon House panel in Hall H. Panelists include Condal, Miguel Sapochnik, Considine (King Viserys Targaryen), Smith (Prince Daemon Targaryen), Cooke (Alicent Hightower), D’Arcy (Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen), Toussaint (Lord Corlys Velaryon), Best (Princess Rhaenys Targaryen), Frankel (Ser Criston Cole), Graham McTavish (Ser Harrold Westerling), Milly Alcock (young Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen) and Emily Carey (young Alicent Hightower).
