Matt Smith went through personal loss and injury while filming House of the Dragon

In a recent interview, Smith revealed, “It was a really weird shoot. I lost my father during the shoot. But then I was doing a stunt scene one day and I slipped a disc in my neck. So if you watch the latter part of the season, you can see I just can’t really move, because we had to keep shooting.”
