House of the Dragon: le foto dal set

Filming for House of the Dragon has just begun and the first photos stolen from the set have already made the rounds of the Internet

Less than two days after HBO announced that the spinoff of Game of Thrones titled House of the Dragon was in production, the first photos from the set of the series have leaked.

Thanks to the Daily Mail we can take a first look at Matt Smith ed Emma D’Arcy with the costumes: those of Prince Daemon Targaryen and Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen respectively.

The images show the two actors outdoors, on a deserted and sandy beach in Cornwall, England, where numerous scenes from the series will be filmed.

Emma D’Arcy wears a scarlet dress with long sleeves and a high collar, her silver hair wrapped in an elaborate puzzle of braids on her head. Matt Smith wears a dark blue doublet that falls to the knee, with high leather boots underneath and, like Rhaenyra, silver blonde hair pulled back in a half ponytail. The two characters appear to be engaged in a serious discussion, probably reminiscent of the disturbing political debates between Cersei, Varys, Littlefinger, and other characters from the parent series.

It is not clear how the images from the set have leaked, since the cast and crew are working in great safety, but the fact is that, as soon as they were posted on social networks, they immediately went viral, so much so that Targaryen immediately jumped to the top of the trends of Twitter.

Of course, the Game of Thrones fandom has begun to give the first opinions on the leaks, some very enthusiastic, others… definitely less.

There are those, for example, who still remember with bitterness the ending of the original series and the fate reserved for Daenerys:

Then there are those who remember with nostalgia the first season of Game of Thrones:

And finally, unsurprisingly, a few sarcastic comments on Matt Smith’s “wig”:
