The Game of Thrones Updates: Here is great news! Game of Thrones prequel, House of Dragon has cast its first star in the role of King Viserys Targaryen—and Daenerys. This was not very soon. Not before a year, after HBO decided to bring the prequel, was the star selected.
Dating back to 300 years the prior Game of thrones and goes behind members of House Targaryen (home of Daenerys) across a span of 10 episodes.
Through a report, on October 5, we got to know that Paddy Considine will step into the shoes of King Viserys Targaryen, and he will be selected by the lords of Westeros to accomplish the Old King, Jaehaerys Targaryen which was at the Great Council at Harrenhal.
Noted for being a warm, kind, and decent man, Viserys, just want to take forward his father’s legacy and nothing more or nothing less. “Good men do not make great kings”. We witnessed the same in Game of Thrones.
Previously, Considine has also marked his very significant presence in HBO’s series like The Third Day and The Outsider, as well as on Peaky Blinders and How to Build a Girl. A native of Staffordshire, he has been competent in acclaiming two BAFTA Awards in his name.
House Of Dragon has been adapted from the book Fire & Blood, written by George R.R. Martin. As well as it is co-created by Martin and Ryan Condal.

The cast crew will include several indispensable characters. Mention can be made of
- Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen,
- Queen Alicent Hightower,
- Prince Daemon Targaryen and
- Aegon II Targaryen.
Prior to this, a totally separate series, starring Naomi Watts, was planned to be produced to serve as a prequel to it. Later the plan was stripped off she was reluctant to move forward with the series.
Emilia Clarke, later stated that she along with many other fans were not contented with the ending of GOT. They found that really obscure.
Despite such resentment, it was merry enough to see the cast get together in the 2019 Emmy Awards and the 2020 SAG Awards at the beginning of this year. And the legacy of reunion continues and they have grown bigger ever after.
