[ESTA NOTICIA CONTIENE SPOILERS DE LA CASA DEL DRAGÓN]It shouldn’t be easy for any actor to join a phenomenon as overwhelming as the universe of Game of Thrones. The fiction born more than a decade ago from the books of George R.R. Martin It came to an end three years ago, but its outcome brought with it the promise of a return to Westeros through various spin-offs. The first of them has been dragon house, prequel that delves into the Targaryens and their civil war for the Iron Throne, known as the Dance with Dragons. In its first three episodes, available on HBO Max, the series has taken us to a Poniente ruled by the ancestors of Daenerys; specifically, for Viserys Targaryen (Paddy Considine). However, the great protagonist of the story has turned out to be his first-born, Rhaenyra Targaryen (Milly Alcock) a rebellious and cunning young woman who will succeed her father on the Throne if social prejudice, envy and family quarrels do not prevent it. Australian actress Milly Alcock is in charge of bringing Rhaenyra to life in her teens, before she Emma D’Arcy put on his robes in adulthood. For Alcock, this project marks his first work outside of his native country, as well as the first major production of his career. As we said, it should not be easy to sign for such a success and deal with expectations. It is not surprising that the young woman felt overwhelmed on the first day of filming her on the set of The house of the dragon, especially if we consider that she had to shoot a particularly significant scene. In an interview for the podcast of the series (via ScreenRant), the actress has revealed that her first sequence was the one from the first episode in which she shared prophecy with Paddy Considine at the foot of the dragon skull Balerion. “At the end of the episode, I’m in the skull room with Paddy and he’s telling something very, very important,” he said. “That was my first day and I was shaking. I was terrified,” has confessed. And it is not for less in the case of such an important shot in the plot, in which Vaserys reveals his daughter the prophecy that has passed from kings to heirs in the Targaryen house. The story alluded to the future invasion of the Night King that we witnessed in Game of thrones, which forced Westeros to unite to face him. In Viserys’ words, “for the world to survive, a Targaryen must occupy the Iron Throne.” Thus, the Targaryens had gained the power to bring a descendant to reunite the kingdoms and thus face the enemy. Interestingly, it would be Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) the one that would end the villain. As for the Throne, another Stark took it, Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright). Whether or not the prophecy is fulfilled, the ending of the first episode of House of the Dragon connects directly with Game of Thrones and reflects the power of the Targaryens, as well as the threat that hangs over Westeros.
