Matt Smith on how his aura was different whenever he was wearing Daemon’s wig




In a recent interview with Hollywood Reporter, actor Matt Smith talked about how he disappeared into playing Daemon Targaryen in House of the Dragon. Smith’s performance in the Game of Thrones prequel was praised by fans and critics alike, labeling him as one of the most intriguing characters of the new series. It’s clear that he put a lot of thought and effort into the character, and it paid off in the end.



This is what the House of the Dragon actor replied when asked about his aura after wearing the wig and his take on method acting:


“Well, I had wonderful moments of real focus and engagement with [Rhaenyra Targaryen actor] Emma D’Arcy and with Paddy where we would just totally be locked into one another’s energies for the day. We could still have a little laugh or whatever, but when the camera was rolling, the focus was on it. Yeah, it felt very real. I wouldn’t call it “method” — that’s such a hard thing to do over the course of 10 months. But that process does bleed in and out if the other actor is up to it.”

At last, when the actor was asked about his recovery after getting injured on the set of House of The Dragon. He replied that:

“I’m actually waiting to go into the physio right now after this to do some work on it. But, you know, it’s all part of the process, on some level.”
