‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel ‘House of the Dragon’ Casting Prince Daemon
HBO’s “House of the Dragon,” the prequel to the most popular TV series “Game of Thrones,” is currently looking to cast Daemon Targaryen, famous as the Rogue Prince, as the lead character.
The upcoming prequel, set to premiere in 2022, is expected to deal with the Targaryen’s most turbulent period, with the destructive Dane of the Dragons event as the main storyline, which kind of tore the royal family apart.
Set around 300 years prior to the events of “Game of Thrones,” the show will be based on the George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood” novel that focuses on the Targaryen family history. Apart from “Fire & Blood,” the series will also take materials from “The Princess and the Queen” and “The Rogue Prince,” which also revolve around the Targaryens.
Prince Daemon Targaryen is one of the major characters as well as the pivotal character from “The Rogue Prince,” who is also listed as a series lead in the “House of the Dragon.”
The Targaryen Prince, who is the younger brother of King Viserys, is described as “less methodical and more imperious. Not to mention easily bored…Most of Daemon’s joy is found at sword-point. The most experienced warrior of his time. He vacillates between vile and heroic, making him the true rogue of the series,” in the HBO casting notice, as reported by The Illuminerdi.
As per the casting notice, the filming of the role of Prince Daemon is scheduled for some time between January and December 2021.
Earlier this year, a casting notice for the role of Rhaenyra was sent out by the network. Rhaenyra is the niece of Prince Daemon, who will marry her on his quest for the Iron Throne. Since July 2020, the casting of the series has relatively sped up.
