House of The Dragon star Matt Smith calls Caraxes ‘a real moody bastard'

The production for Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon is in full swing. We’re receiving updates about the filming currently going on in the Portuguese city of stone, Monsanto, via leaks that are reported every other day. Former Doctor Who Matt Smith is playing the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen on the show, one of the key players in the story of House of The Dragon. And his dragon, Caraxes, is going to be one of the meanest, biggest, and baddest beasts in the series.

We know that there will be a lot of differences between House of The Dragon and the original series, Game of Thrones, and Matt Smith tries to explain them in his own way. In a recent interview with Looper, he explained:

“House of the Dragon is still filming, it’s very clearly set in the same landscape as Game of Thrones, but with some differences. Obviously … there’s dragons and swords and all of the intrigue and dastardly goings on that happen in the court of the Targaryens. I suppose fundamentally, it’s a different story. We’re 300 years before ‘Game of Thrones.’ We’re spending time with a smaller group of characters to a certain degree … I think it’s up for other people to decide how they’re similar or different. I just turn up and try and get the lines in the right order.”
