GAME of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon has posted the first look at its cast and finally confirmed production has started.
The prequel series was first announced back in October 2019, soon after HBO scrapped its other GoT series, Bloodmoon.
In December last year the cast were confirmed including The Crown's Matt Smith and Truth Seekers' Emma D'Arcy.
Now, the official Game of Thrones Twitter account and a new House of the Dragon account have released first look pictures of the cast during a table read.
The accounts also confirmed some casting reports and shared details of who the actors will play.
Matt, 38, could be seen making notes in his script, looking studious in glasses and with a pair of headphones around his neck.
He will play Prince Daemon Targaryen, King Viserys Targaryen's younger brother.
King Viserys will be played by Paddy Constantine, while Emma will play Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, his daughter.
Rhys Ifans is playing Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King and close counsellor of King Viserys, and actress Olivia Cooke will play Otto's daughter, Alicent Hightower.
House of the Dragon is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones.
It will tell the story of how the House begins to fall apart and the Dance of the Dragons civil war begins.
How King's Landing was built is also set to be revealed, as is the origin stories of some of the other iconic Houses seen in the original HBO series.
House of the Dragon is set to be released in 2022.
