Game Of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon has made more casting announcements – and we’re already obsessed.
The official Twitter account for the HBO series tweeted a snap of four actors, writing: ‘Bend the knee. Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Rhys Ifans, and Sonoya Mizuno join the cast of @HBO’s #HouseOfTheDragon.’
Fans are thrilled at the news, with one writing: ‘Let’s gooooooo,’ and another adding: ‘Sonoya Mizuno YASSSSSSSS.’
Rhys is best known for his roles in The Amazing Spider-Man, Notting Hill, and Harry Potter, while Steve has appeared in The Prince of Persia: Sands of Time.
Eve Best has starred in the likes of The King’s Speech and Nurse Jackie, and Sonoya Mizuno has appeared in Ex Machina and La La Land.
The four of them join the already cast Matt Smith (Prince Daemon Targaryen), Emma D’Arcy (Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen), Olivia Cooke (Alicent Hightower), and Paddy Considine (King Viserys Targaryen).
The highly-anticipated spin-off will return viewers to Westeros 200 years before the events of the original series.
It will be based on George RR Martin’s story Dance of Dragons about a Targaryen civil war.
Meanwhile, filming is set to kick off soon enough, with it being reported that production will begin this April.
It was previously reported that shooting on House of the Dragon will take place at Leavesden Studios in Watford. Croatia and Morocco are also set to feature as locations.
The series is currently slated for release in 2022. This is in large part due to the expected scale of the series, and the unplanned lockdown of production caused by coronavirus, starting in March 2020.
