Riding with Dragons: Baela Targaryen’s thrilling journey in House of the Dragon Season 2 revealed by Bethany Antonia




The release of the teaser trailer for House of the Dragon Season 2 has heightened anticipation for the show’s comeback. HBO’s Game of Thrones prequel will air in summer 2024. According to George R.R. Martin‘s book Fire and Blood, the Targaryen civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons will formally commence, introducing us to several new characters. The younger generation will be taking center stage, among them being Bethany Antonia‘s Baela Targaryen.

Baela Targaryen will have a lot of dragon-riding scenes in Season 2

The Blacks will have an uphill battle in House of the Dragon season 2, and Bethany Antonia’s Baela will be a part of that. She recently teased in an interview with Vestalmag:

“If they were eagle eyed, they might have noticed in the trailer that this season I got to do some dragon riding scenes. They’ll get to meet Moondancer, my character’s dragon companion, since it was a hatchling. I know fans are eagerly anticipating the introduction of the new dragon, so that’s going to be really cool. Actually, “riding” the dragon was perhaps the most exciting experience I’ve ever had on set.


Picture this: you’re on a massive stage, suspended in the air on a floating saddle, learning how to maneuver obviously without the actual presence of the dragon. However, the production team provided detailed visualizations of the scene, so I could clearly understand my character’s direction and interactions. I’m incredibly grateful to have worked with such a talented stunt team who taught me how to “move with the dragon.”

Baela Targaryen will have a bigger role in Season 2 than she had in Season 1. The excitement for the impending prequel program is at an all-time high after HBO published three teasers lately. In the Black teaser, Baela could also be seen riding her dragon, Moondancer. On social media, though, some people who don’t like Antonia’s casting started insulting her racially.
