The wait for the premiere of the spin-off House of the Dragon on the HBO network on August 21 has been accompanied by a wide variety of comments not only about what it will show on screen, but also about the backstage that surrounds its production already. his cast. Opportunity that has brought to light an interesting aspect of one of its actors, which few followers had taken into account until now.
House of the Dragon is set two hundred years before the events shown on screen by Game of Thrones, and will follow the tumultuous and fiery lives of the Targaryen family who, at the time the series takes place, are still serving as the rulers of Westeros. The series is based on a book written by A Song of Ice and Fire author George RR Martin called Fire & Blood.
This specific book by Martin is a prequel to the larger series of novels, although it is not really a complete work but a complementary history of the Targaryen dynasty, it is important enough that the producers of House of the Dragon used its content in a new blockbuster for television.
With House of the Dragon, fans of the saga will have the opportunity to witness up close one of the loose ends left by Game of Thrones, the origins of the chaos and destruction that caused the fall of the powerful ancestors of the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen. The cast in charge of bringing fiction to the screen is a long list of artists. One of them is Jefferson Hall, who curiously has an artistic career that includes important productions such as Game of Thrones and Vikings.
While in Vikings Hall he played the Norse warrior Torstein, one of Ragnar Lodbrok’s (Travis Fimmel) best friends, in Game of Thrones he played Hugh del Valle, a knighted squire from the Valley of Arryn who dies after being injured by a splintered spear while fighting in a tournament at the hands of Ser Gregor Clegane.
This time, in House of the Dragon, Hall will play a double role, that of the Lannister twins. The star will play Lord Jason Lannister and Tyland Lannister. Jason is the lord of Casterly Rock, while Tyland is noted for his political and calculating side. This fact makes the actor the only star in his acting resume to appear both in the original series Game of Thrones and in its long-awaited spin-off.
