Ryan Corr - and a bunch of famous faces - cast in Game of Thrones spin-off
We just scored our first look at the show with a captivating new teaser.
Calling all Game of Thrones fans: Australian actor Ryan Corr has been cast in the highly anticipated new HBO prequel, House of the Dragon.
The new series promises to be the hottest television event since Daenerys burnt King’s Landing to the ground. You know… like in the final season? Just a little Thrones humour for ya, because our favourite show about kings, queens and dragons is back. In a way.
From the mind of George R.R. Martin, the prequel House of the Dragon will explore events within the Targaryen dynasty set 200 years before those of GoT.

In a short but scintillating new trailer, fans can catch a glimpse of what the show has to offer. And while not all that much really happens in the minute-long teaser, it's still enough to reel you in.
Sword fighting, jousting, ominous staring and dramatic walks by candlelight all hint at one major thing: House of the Dragon will be every bit as captivating as Game of Thrones.
