“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.

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