Leo Ashton (Aemond Targaryen) explains how the Vhagar scene was filmed in a House of The Dragon behind-the-scenes clip



aemond-vhagar season 1

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon’s seventh episode premiered earlier this week, and it combined everything we have liked so far about the series. Even though the episode begins with a grim tone, with Laena Velaryon’s funeral after her suicide in the previous chapter, the focal point of the episode was young Aemond Targaryen. The events that followed snowballed into a bigger conflict, when Alicent Hightower’s second son Aemond claimed Vhagar for himself. The skirmish that follows sees Aemond losing his eye, however, as he and Otto see it, it was worth the price.

Leo Ashton, who played the younger version of Aemond ‘One-Eye’ Targaryen in episodes 6 and 7, had the time of his life riding the biggest dragon in the show, as evident from the new behind-the-scenes video that was posted earlier today. Co-showrunner Ryan Condal, along with Ashton and a few others from the crew explained how they brought the entire sequence to life.
