First Official Photos from HBO's "House Of The Dragon"

Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Prince Daemon Targaryen, played by Emma D'Arcy and Matt Smith, respectively.

Rhaenyra Targaryen: "The king’s first-born child, she is of pure Valyrian blood, and she is a dragonrider. Many would say that Rhaenyra was born with everything… but she was not born a man." 

Daemon Targaryen: "The younger brother to King Viserys and heir to the throne. A peerless warrior and a dragonrider, Daemon possesses the true blood of the dragon. But it is said that whenever a Targaryen is born, the gods toss a coin in the air." 

Olivia Cooke and Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower and his daughter Alicent Hightower. 

Otto is the Hand of the King to the current ruler of Westeros, King Viserys Targaryen. 

Alicent is described by HBO as "the most comely woman in the Seven Kingdoms." She was raised in the Red Keep, in King's Landing, "close to the king and his innermost circle; she possesses both a courtly grace and a keen political acumen." 

Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys of House Velaryon, known as the Sea Snake. 

Corlys and his family are from a "Valyrian bloodline as old as House Targaryen," per HBO. "As 'The Sea Snake,' the most famed nautical adventurer in the history of Westeros, Lord Corlys built his house into a powerful seat that is even richer than the Lannisters and that claims the largest navy in the world." 

The show will debut on HBO and on its streaming platform HBO Max in 2022.
