Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has been a roller coaster ride so far, with barely any moments to catch a break. Every episode ramps up the tension and intensity, with the Targaryen family steadily straining apart. The Greens are gearing up to take control of King’s Landing, while Rhaenyra is holed up at Dragonstone undergoing pregnancy oblivious to the situation. Amidst the ensuing drama, Alicent’s eldest son Aegon II is stuck like a square peg in a round hole, and will be forced to sit on the Iron Throne.

Actor Tom Glynn-Carney, who plays the young prince and soon to be the ruler of Westeros, recently had a chat with Schön! magazine and revealed what he thought of his character.

He said, “Aegon is the eldest son of King Viserys and causes significant dispute within the realm. Aegon is a tortured soul, with many unlikable qualities – qualities I have learned to love about him. He is dealt a difficult hand and is ill equipped to deal with the pressures put to him. Some may see echoes of Joffrey Baratheon in him; I see him as a much more complex beast than this.”

“He is desperate to be loved but destined to be hated. He seeks validation but is met by selfishness and neglect. There is a deep darkness to Aegon, one that can’t be quenched, making him incredibly dangerous and unpredictable. He is intelligent and has a keen eye for the weak spots of others. The man is a tight ball of knots and tangles, and we get a small glimpse of his potential in Season 1. He certainly is an interesting character to bring to life – a challenge I am honoured to take.”
