Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon season 1 finished its run last month and received an overwhelmingly positive response from viewers and critics. Some have even labeled it as being better than the first season of Game of Thrones. The making of the first season took a lot of hard work, planning, patience, coordination between various departments, and a big budget. There are a lot of stories from behind the scenes, from the various processes that were employed to funny and interesting tales among the cast and crew. A few of them are only recently coming to light as they are revealing them one by one in post-season interviews.


House of The Dragon director Greg Yaitanes, who recently appeared on Entertainment Weekly’s West of Westeros podcast, recalled one such interesting incident from the season 1 finale. He said that the twin actors playing Erryk and Arryk Cargyll, Luke and Elliott Tittensor, were swapped midway through the shoot as one of them got COVID.

Yaitanes recalled, “There’s that scene, that big scene where Corlys [Steve Toussaint] comes down and they’re putting the markers on the table and the messenger comes in. It was a shot over two days and then one [of the brothers] got COVID. [Elliott] got COVID, so we swapped him out with his brother.”
