HBO is coming up grand with its Game of Thrones spin-off series House of the Dragon. And according to actor Ryan Corr, the show will be almost as incredible as the flagship series.
Recently, Ryan Corr interviewed with If.com.au. In a conversation, Corr elaborated on the monumental scale of the upcoming HBO fantasy show. “The sheer size of it was something I was amazed by,” he explained.
“When you are walking into operational sets with actual jousting tournaments and full-level scale castles with fire cauldrons hanging on the roof, it’s a pretty incredible place to be. It’s like walking into a live Shakespeare play.”
House of the Dragon is a rough adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s novel Fire & Blood. The Game of Thrones successor House will tell the story of 200 years before the events of the iconic series. And it will depict the beginning of the end for Westeros’ ruling House of Targaryen. The main focus of the show will drive it towards the so-called “Dance of the Dragons”, which was the civil war between rival Targaryen factions.
Actor Ryan Corr plays Ser Harwin Strong. Ser Harwin is a knight who is respected for being the strongest man in the Seven Kingdoms. He is otherwise popularly known as “Breakbones” Being the eldest son to Master of Laws Lyonel Strong, he is the heir to Harrenhal Castle.
Author George R.R. Martin’s last update on his blog stated that the filming of the first season of House of the Dragon is wrapped.
“Yes, all ten episodes [are finished],” he wrote. “I have seen rough cuts of a few of them, and I’m loving them. Of course, a lot more work needs to be done. Special effects, color timing, score, all the post production work. But the writing, the directing, the acting all look terrific. I hope you will like them as much as I do. My hat is off to [showrunners] Ryan [Condol] and Miguel [Sapochnik] and their team, and to our amazing cast.”
Regardless of the buzz surrounding the release of the prequel, HBO has not given an official date for the premiere of House of the Dragon. The production and HBO Max Chief Content Officer Casey Bloys recently commented on the subject. The reason behind this delay is the global issue of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty that comes with it.
However, Bloys also guaranteed that the network will make an announcement regarding the release date soon.
“Now that we are out of production, I think that we will talk to their guys and figure out what we want to do in terms of announcing a date,” he explained. “But I was just trying to make sure that we didn’t come out with a date that we couldn’t meet for something that was out of our control.”
The first 10-episode season of House of the Dragon will premiere on HBO sometime in 2022.
