Matt Smith says dealing with pressure on House of The Dragon was easier than Doctor Who



Daemon begins to prepare for war

Actor Matt Smith is one talented and lucky chap; he has been/is going to be a part of three of the most famous franchises in the world. Be it a Marvel villain in Morbius, a former enigmatic Doctor Who, or a hot-headed Prince Daemon Targaryen in the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel, he has seen the best and the worst of it all. So it is natural to ask him about his experience on the three sets, which he happily explained.

In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Smith compared the pressure he felt on House of The Dragon to that of Doctor Who. The actor said, “The pressure that came with Doctor Who is extraordinary. On this, you’re sharing it with like 10 other actors. Doctor Who is Doctor Who, Hamlet is Hamlet, you know? I was 26 [when I was cast] and I don’t know if I’ll ever feel pressure like that again. In Britain, anyway, the focus on that job is enormous.”


“House of the Dragon is a huge global franchise, or so they tell me, but I just go to work in a studio in Watford and try to get the lines in the right order. I think that everyone who leaves Doctor Who will forever miss Doctor Who because it doesn’t get any better. He is the most glorious character. To live with the idea of being able to time travel is f-ing amazing. It’s limitless. It’s a tough part to leave.”
