Game of Thrones hero Peter Dinklage has shared his advice to HBO ahead of the incoming prequel House of The Dragon expected to arrive in 2022.

It’s been three years since the Game of Thrones bowed out like a damp squib, but there are plenty of new shows based on the George RR Martin fantasy epic on the way.

Martin himself has seen a rough cut of House of The Dragon’s opening episode (and loved it), but Dinklage – who starred as Tyrion Lannister, one of the few characters to survive in Game of Thrones – has warned HBO not to simply ‘recreate’ the original series.

‘That feels like a money grab,’ he told The Independent.

‘With a lot of sequels, the reason for them is that the first one made a lot of money, which is why they aren’t as strong.’

House of The Dragon stars former Doctor Who lead Matt Smith and is adapted from Martin’s book Fire and Blood, which ends with a massive battle nicknamed The Dance of the Dragons – caused by an inter-family civil war.

Set 300 years before the events of Game Of Thrones, the series will follow the Targaryen family history, starting right at the formation of Westeros.

Paddy Considine, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, and Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel and Graham McTavish also star in what is bound to be one of the most ambitious new shows of 2022.

A trailer for House of The Dragon was unleashed last year and included several juicy Easter eggs which naturally had fans going wild, including a familiar looking dagger…

House of The Dragon is coming to HBO Max in the US and NOW in the UK.
