Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is already making jaws drop with its amazing themes, immersive storyline, blood and gore, and breathtaking graphics. Fans are the most excited about the variety of dragons they will get to see in House of The Dragon. We have already seen a number of dragons so far, Daemon Targaryen’s Caraxes, Rhaenyra’s Syrax, Laenor Velaryon’s Seasmoke, and Rhaenys Targaryen’s Meleys. However, there is one dragon the fans are impatiently waiting for, the last surviving member of the trio that conquered Westeros with Aegon I. And she made a grand entrance in episode 6.

Actress Nanna Blondell, who played an adult Laena Velaryon in the show, recently talked about how she felt when riding Vhagar in a recent episode of the official Game of Thrones podcast:

“Let me talk about my expectations about filming that scene. In my head, I thought I was gonna ride a dragon. I don’t how I could be so stupid. No, I was so bummed out. It was a nice day. You sit on that, you know, saddle, and the others, they have smaller dragons. So they get to do things like more rollercoaster riding. Mine – Vhagar, is so big, so it’s like, really slow. You know, going to the left, going to the right. And then they have these leaf blowers in your face. And then when you need more they just put more guys with leaf blowers in your face.”
