Martin‘s book “Fire and Blood,” the Game of Thrones prequel introduces a number of new characters from Westeros’ past. One of those characters is Freddie Fox‘s Gwayne Hightower, who didn’t have a lot to do in Season 1, but will play a major role in the upcoming installment. And Matt Smith (Daemon Targaryen) has high praises for the actor.

Smith, who has appeared in a number of major franchises from Marvel to Dr. Who, recently talked to The Guardian and stressed the importance of theatre. He recalled how his House of the Dragon co-star Freddie Fox described it, “I was talking about this, as one does, to the wonderful actor Freddie Fox, who is not only astoundingly beautiful but also a creature of the theatre, and he said: ‘Well, darling, you know, it’s where one sharpens one’s tool.’”
