Matt Smith spotted in Targaryen attire at Kynance Cove in Cornwall




The filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving at a really swift pace, as shown by the frequent leaks that we’re witnessing every day. The more pictures we see, the more it gets clear that HBO is going to go deep into the Dance of the Dragons storyline, and cover more chapters from the books than we initially expected. More pictures from the set were leaked recently by The Daily Mail, and these new pictures provide a clearer perspective of Daemon Targaryen’s costume.


The newest photos show House of The Dragon star Matt Smith in Daemon Targaryen’s attire talking to a crew member. It seems like he was taking a break from shooting in some of these photos, spending some time playing with a puppy close to a house.


There are also some pictures of the shoot, one of them shows Matt Smith walking down a beach, and the cast and crew members discussing an important scene on the beach at a distance. We can spot some more Targaryens, by looking at the wigs they are wearing, they might be Emma D’Arcy as Rhaenyra Targaryen and Matt Smith himself.

Game of Thrones was a memorable experience for both the fans and the show’s crew. Rarely do we see a TV show achieve massive popularity as Game of Thrones did in the last decade. Many of the show’s crew have moved on to new projects, including showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. They are working on a new sci-fi Netflix show the Three-Body Problem, and it seems they have found their director in Better Days fame Derek Tsang.


The reveal marks the first piece of official news about the mysterious project since it was announced last year. Three-Body Problem is set to be the first series with writer-producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss serving as showrunners since HBO’s Game of Thrones. Alexander Woo (The Terror: Infamy) also serves as a co-creator, writer and executive producer.

Benioff and Weiss, along with Alexander Woo are working together to adapt Liu Cixin’s bestseller “Three-Body Problem” for Netflix. The series will be covering all three books of the trilogy, namely, “The Three-Body Problem,” “The Dark Forest,” and “Death’s End.” The story revolves around the idea of humanity’s first contact with aliens. Netflix struck a deal with Yoozoo group for the rights to make an English adaptation of the trilogy.

The production for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving rather swiftly, and we might see George R. R. Martin’s prediction about the series’ release come to fruition. Various cast and crew members have been spotted by locals and reporters quite recently, despite HBO’s best efforts to keep the filming under the veil. The cast and the crew have returned to Holywell beach, but this time, the scale of production seems to be much more massive. After recent leaks showed the crew tidying up the location for filming a rumoured battle sequence, more pictures emerged showing a Targaryen camp under construction.


The photos of the set came along with the leaks involving Daemon Targaryen, hence pointing at a connection between the two. This might be a battle camp or a camp for a tourney erected for the Targaryen prince. We also see a knight in armour in action, swinging his sword in fury. Things are getting really interesting folks!




Looking at recent leaks, we can theorize that the crew of House of The Dragon is preparing for the Tourney held at Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon’s wedding ceremony. Why? Recent leaks have shown glimpses of a young Rhaenyra Targaryen with Laenor Velaryon, a battle-ready Daemon Targaryen and now a Targaryen camp.

What are your thoughts about the theory? Talk to us in the comments below!


Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is one of the high priority projects at HBO currently. The production is moving swiftly despite hitting some minor obstacles along the way, as indicated by the regular leaks occurring all over the internet. Recently, some never-before-seen photos from the set were leaked by locals, and for the first time, we have an idea of what Matt Smith’s Daemon Targaryen will look like in Targaryen battle gear.


We can see in some of the pictures the crew is helping Matt get into what looks like a black leather armour. A few knights and soldiers in full body armour can be seen walking near him in another photo.


In one of the photos, Matt Smith, who’s playing Daemon Targaryen on the show, can be seen walking on the beach, his platinum blonde wig blowing in the wind as he rests one of his hands on his sword.



It looks like Daemon Targaryen is gearing up for a battle or a tourney. We couldn’t spot any dragon props or 3-D motion capture devices in the photos, so it strongly suggests they are preparing for a tourney. Depending on the timeline, we are looking at a few contenders, tourney held at King Viserys I’s ascension to the throne, tourney held on the fifth anniversary of King Viserys I and Queen Alicent’s marriage and the most plausible one being the tourney at King’s Landing for the wedding of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Ser Laenor Velaryon.


The last one seems the most obvious explanation as recent leaks of a young Rhaenyra Targaryen and Laenor Velaryon were circulating recently in media. What do you think? Tell us in the comments below!
