Who will they be playing, you ask? Lucky for us, HBO released some descriptions of the recently cast characters.
Steve Toussaint – Lord Corlys Velaryon
“The lord of House Velaryon, a Valyrian bloodline as old as House Targaryen, “The Sea Snake,” is the most famed nautical adventurer in the history of Westeros. He built his house into a powerful seat that is even richer than the Lannisters and that claims the largest navy in the world.”
Eve Best – Rhaenys Velaryon.
“A dragonrider and wife to Lord Corlys Velaryon, “The Queen Who Never Was” was passed over as heir to the throne at the Great Council because the realm favored her cousin, Viserys, simply for being male.
Rhys Ifans – Otto Hightower.
“[Otto is] the Hand of the King, who loyally and faithfully serves both his king and his realm. As the Hand sees it, the greatest threat to the realm is the king’s brother, Daemon, and his position as heir to the throne.”
Sonoya Mizuno – Mysaria.
“She came to Westeros with nothing, sold more times than she can recall, and could have wilted…but instead she rose to become the most trusted — and most unlikely — ally of Prince Daemon Targaryen, the heir to the throne.”=
The series will be the first spin-off to premiere. The show is expected to be released in 2022. Set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones. The show will tell the story of House Targaryen,
