GAME OF THRONES Prequel ‘House of the Dragon’ Reportedly Starts Filming In Cornwall

It has been reported that House of the Dragon, the prequel to the smash-hit HBO series, Game of Thrones, is believed to have started filming in Cornwall, after photos appeared online thought to be Matt Smith and Emma D’Arcy, at Holywell Bay near Newquay, fully costumes, and with a film crew present.

Matt Smith is of course known for playing the iconic Doctor Who, and also had a starring role in Netflix drama, The Crown, where played the late Prince Philip, and in House of the Dragon, Smith will take the part of Prince Daemon Targaryen, and Emma Smith has the part of Rhaenyra Targaryen.

Last week, there was believed to have also been production going on at St Michael’s Mount, near Penzance, where film crews and medieval-style sets were spotted.

HBO confirmed earlier this week that production on this new series had started, accompanied by tweets showing cast members doing a socially-distanced table script reading, including Paddy Considine who has the role of Viserys I Targaryen, Steve Toussaint who is Corlys Velaryon, and Olivia Cooke who will play Alicent Hightower.

Writer George RR Martin‘s 2018 novel Fire & Blood is the source of the new series, reportedly scheduled for release on the HBO Max streaming service in the US in 2022.

The new series chronicles the story of the Targaryen family and takes us back to 300 years before the events of Game Of Thrones, and it is hoped the series will have the same phenomenal success that its predecessor enjoyed during its eight seasons between 2011 and 2019, with plans for a West End style show in the pipeline as well, as reported by
