Game of Thrones fans react to lead casting for prequel series House of the Dragon

House of the dragon

Ever since its announcement, fans all around the world are going crazy over the rumors of casting for the Game of Thrones’ prequel House of the Dragon. Fans have been debating about the best choice for The Rogue Prince, Daemon Targaryen, over the last few weeks.

The House of the Dragon series is based on George R. R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood. The book covers the first 150 years of House Targaryen’s rule in Westeros. The show will be allegedly centered around The Dance of the Dragons, a civil war that happened about 170 years before the events of Game of Thrones.

The casting call for Daemon was recently published. It said that HBO seeks an actor between the ages of 40 and 50 years old. It solidifies the theory because Daemon was middle-aged when the civil war began.

The character description for Daemon is as follows:

The younger brother to King Viserys, Daemon wasn’t born with ‘naked ambition’ for the throne despite being in line for it. He’s less methodical and more impetuous. Not to mention easily bored… stumbling from one distraction to the next with the subconscious yet singular obsession with earning the love and acceptance of his brother the king. Most of Daemon’s joy is found at sword-point. But even as the most experienced warrior of his time, he vacillates between vile and heroic, making him the true rogue of the series.”

Some of the fans are expressing their trust issues online, saying the casting can either make or break the show. Some common fan choices for the role are Patrick Wilson, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, and Ian Somerhalder.

Who do you think would be the perfect choice? Let us know in the comments below.

The year 2020 has been the Red Wedding for everyone around the world. Looking at the current scenario, stepping out of quarantine seems to be a big risk. People are cautious and suspicious of each other, scared of contamination. Under such dire conditions, normal life sounds like a fantasy. Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner and husband Joe Jonas are trying hard to give their new-born daughter a normal life.

The young couple went out for a walk with their daughter Willa in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Turner was seen in a T-shirt and black leggings, while Jonas was rocking the buzzcut he dyed pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month while. They were pushing Willa in a black baby carriage.

Both the high-profile parents were keeping it low-key and were wearing properly secured black face masks. Since becoming parents in July 2020, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner have been focusing more on their baby and less on sharing details of their private life.

Sophie earlier made headlines with an Instagram post, when she brought a prop from Game of Thrones set back home. She welcomed the wooden Throne of Winterfell at her home, which had an intricately carved dire-wolf on it.

Turner and Jonas are trying their best to be good parents for little Willa. Feel free to express your good wishes for their cute family in the comments below!
