HBO is presently laborious at work on Home of the Dragon, a prequel to their huge hit Sport of Thrones. (Probably the primary of a number of, however that’s one other story.) The collection is ready over 100 years earlier than the unique present and tells the story of the Dance of the Dragons, a Targaryen civil warfare that pit totally different branches of the dragon-riding household in opposition to one another. We already know lots in regards to the solid, however there are nonetheless many names but to be introduced. Just like the mom collection, Home of the Dragon has a lot of characters.
And we could have discovered the person who will play considered one of them. As sussed out by Reddit, the Twitter web page for the U.Ok. Actors Help Community not too long ago posted that commemorated English actor David Horovitch will seem within the present:
The 76-year-old Horovitch (he actually turns 76 in the present day) has a protracted historical past on British TV, having appeared in stuff like Thriller, The New Avengers, Prince Regent, Piece of Cake and far more. He’s in all probability greatest identified for enjoying Inspector Slack in Miss Marple, a job he reprised in a number of specials. He’s additionally a Shakespearean actor who’s taken to studying the bard’s sonnets on his YouTube web page:
Who will David Horovitch play in Home of the Dragon?
So who would possibly Horovitch play on the Sport of Thrones prequel? There are a pair older characters who play memorable roles within the Dance. He might be Bartimos Celtigar, the rich Lord of Claw Isle and the top of Home Celtigar through the warfare. He might be Grand Maester Orwyle, who served King Aegon II Targaryen through the battle. However the alternative I like greatest is Lord Lyman Beesbury, as a result of his story may be very dramatic.
Lord Lyman Beesbury served because the grasp of coin on the small council for King Viserys I Targaryen, to be performed on the present by Paddy Considine. The Dance of the Dragons is kicked off when King Viserys died and there’s battle over who ought to substitute him on the Iron Throne. His second spouse Alicent Hightower (Olivia Cooke) pushes for her first son by the king, Aegon II. However his daughter Rhaenyra (Emma D’Arcy) — his solely surviving little one by this primary spouse — is for certain the throne ought to go to her.
When the small council gathers in Alicent Hightower’s chamber proper after Viserys’ loss of life, Lord Beesbury is the one one to espouse Rhaenyra’s declare to the throne. In response, Lord Commander of the Kingsguard Criston Cole (Fabien Frankel) kills him, though differ as as to if he slits his throat, locks him within the black cells, or tosses him out a window. Personally, I’m hoping the present goes with choice #3.
Horovitch’s casting isn’t confirmed, however I’m into it. Home of the Dragon premieres on HBO someday in 2022.
