One of the prime locations for the filming of House of The Dragon will be the Spanish castle of La Calahorra, which is being readied at the moment as the production is expected to begin next week.

Filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving very swiftly, as evident from the frequent leaks we’re witnessing with every passing day. Though HBO has been mum about revealing any more info about the show, these periodic leaks are causing waves of excitement amongst the fans, as they’re left wondering and speculating who’s who in the new set pictures. Recently, a few more pictures were leaked, one of them showed Milly Alcock, dressed as a young Rhaenyra Targaryen, being accompanied by a Kingsguard member.

Since she is not heavily guarded, we can assume Rhaenyra Targaryen is in safe territory, and she’s just taking a break from dragon riding to ride a horse. Many fans have claimed the member of the Kingsguard seen accompanying her in the picture is none other than Ser Criston Cole, played by Fabien Frankel.

There were rumours about a fling between Rhaenyra and Criston Cole during their younger days in the Fire and Blood books, but neither of them went ahead with it. It is one of the reasons why Cole decided to side with Alicent Hightower during the Dance of the Dragons.

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is moving steadily with its production, and we can expect the series to be here not too far into 2022. The filming for the show had been taking place in Cornwall for the past couple of weeks, as the recent leaks have shown. We captured a glimpse of several details previously unknown, and received an official statement about new characters joining the show. So far everything about the series seems to be promising, and the production will now move to Spain for further filming.

Recently, Matt Smith was spotted in the castle of La Calahorra, which is supposed to be one of the prime locations in Spain for filming House of The Dragon.

The year 2021 has been an exceptional one for Game of Thrones fans all over the world. The show ended about two years ago, and HBO is keen on continuing the legacy of the fantastical universe. House of The Dragon is already on its wheels; the first prequel that will be aired in 2022. The series was teased in HBO’s amazing programming line-up for 2021-22. The casting for various key characters has already been done. With the tables all set, the television giant is already looking forward to expanding the Game of Thrones universe. It seems like wooing their lost audience back is their top priority.

Recently, HBO changed the official description of Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon on their dedicated webpage. The description now reads,

holywell-beach-filming-4015010

Based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” the series, which is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, tells the story of House Targaryen.

Earlier, the official website said the prequel series will be set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones, which by lore, was quite incorrect, as pointed by many fans.

Though filming for the show is going on at a swift pace, the production might take some time because of reshoots and corrections in the VFX effects.

Hopefully, the show will be here not too far into 2022. Are you excited about House of The Dragon? Talk to us in the comments below!
