Eve Best, who will play Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, recently talked to The Guardian about her experience o the set of House of The Dragon. On being asked if she has any signature weapons, she said, “Not this season but just wait. One day, the props department gave Steve [Toussaint, who plays her husband Corlys] this massive double-sided machete, with an axe head on one side and a sword for chopping off people’s heads on the other. Steve was beside himself, like a kid in a sweet shop.”

“I was intensely jealous and said I wanted a whip. Slightly as a joke but why is it the man who’s handed all this fabulous weaponry? Literally the next day, I was presented with this beautiful red leather whip and sent off to have whip lessons, which was cool.”

She also recalled about how she felt when she rode a dragon for the first time, “Someone described it as like a bucking bronco meets a wild rollercoaster. I can’t bear fairground rides, so it was slightly filling me with dread. But it was amazing. You climb up a huge ladder onto this extraordinary machine, then get strapped in. It moves and makes alarming noises, while a wind machine blasts you. I was bruised to hell the next day.”
