Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is on everyone’s lips right now, after the recent announcement of the release date by HBO. The series is slated for a release in August, and fans are really hyped up about it. Avid readers of George R. R. Martin’s works are looking forward to seeing some of their favorite characters from the novel Fire and Blood, including Corlys Velaryon, The Sea Snake. However, quite a lot of people are offended by the change in the appearance of Westeros’s most famous seafarer.

However, Steve Toussaint is quite excited about his role, and told Entertainment Weekly, “No one wants to f— with him. [The Targaryens] have dragons, but still, they don’t want to lose the whole ocean, which he commands. He knows he has power, and he knows that they need him… He’s this fearless guy.”

“He’s very rich now. He likes people to see that he’s rich. But you, as the actor, have to find a way to humanize it.”

Toussaint also likens Corlys to Tywin Lannister, especially since he got the role after reading Charles Dance’s famous lines for his audition. He said, “Sea Snake is a father and wants what he thinks is the best for his children. It’s much simpler then. If you don’t do it right, you die. That’s it. There’s no gray area. But of course, he has this huge ambition. This idea of legacy, it’s a big deal for him.”
