The prequel, which is set three hundred years prior to the events of Game of Thrones, is based on George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood and will tell the story of House Targaryen. Alcock has been cast to play Princess Rhaenyera Targaryen, who is not only the king’s first-born child, but she was born with pure Valyrian blood and is also a dragon rider. D’Arcy’s casting was previously announced back in December.

The Targaryens aren’t the only family being represented in the House of Dragons. Alicent Hightower is the daughter of Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King. Cooke was featured in the first set of cast photos that HBO unveiled at the start of filming. Carey has been cast to portray her younger self, perhaps during the time that she was raised in the Red Keep, within the king’s innermost circle.

In Fire & Blood, Rhaenyra and Alicent become fierce rivals, both vying for the honor of claiming the throne for themselves and their own heirs. House Targaryen’s history is filled with intrigue, drama, and even a bit of romance in between a few battles with dragons. Alcock and Carey join an ever-growing cast list that includes Paddy Considine, Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, Sonoya Mizuno, and Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen.
