Meet the characters and cast of House of the Dragon

Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen, chosen by the lords of Westeros to succeed the Old King, Jaehaerys Targaryen, at the Grand Council at Harrenhal. A warm, kind and decent man, Viserys only wants to carry on his grandfather’s legacy. But good men are not necessarily great kings.

Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, King Viserys’ younger brother and heir to the throne. An unrivaled warrior and a dragon tamer. Daemon has true dragon blood, but it is said that whenever a Targaryen is born, the gods flip a coin.

Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower, daughter of Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King, and the most beautiful woman in the Seven Kingdoms. She was brought up in the Red Keep, close to the king and his innermost circle; she possesses courteous grace and keen political acumen.

Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, the king’s eldest son of pure Valyrian blood, and a dragon tamer. Many would say that Rhaenyra was born with everything…but she just wasn’t born a man.

Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon, “The Sea Serpent”. Lord of House Velaryon, a Valyrian bloodline as old as House Targaryen. As the most famous nautical adventurer in the history of Westeros, Lord Corlys has turned his home into a mighty seat that is even richer than the Lannisters, and claims to have the largest marine structure in the world.

Eve Best as Princess Rhaenys Targaryen, dragon tamer and wife of Lord Corlys Velaryon, “The Queen Who Never Was” was passed over as heir to the throne at the Grand Council because the kingdom favored her cousin, Viserys , just for being a man.

Fabien Frankel as Sir Criston Cole, a Dornish descendant and son of the Lord’s butler of Blackhaven. Cole has no rights to land or titles; all he has in his name is his honor and his exceptional skill with a sword.

Sonoya Mizuno as Mysaria, who arrived in Westeros with nothing, has sold more times than she can remember. She could have given up, but instead, she rose to become the most trusted – and most unlikely – ally of Prince Daemon Targaryen, the heir to the throne.
