Who stars in House of the Dragon?
Since the series spans decades and centers on the two young royals, there are two actors playing Rhaenyra. Milly Alcock plays the younger Rhaenyra, while Emma D’Arcy plays the older. Same goes for Alicent Hightower, the daughter of the King’s Hand Otto Hightower (Rhys Ifans). Emilia Carey plays the younger Alicent and Olivia Cooke the older.
As for the rest of the characters, well, there’s a lot.
On the Targaryen side, there’s Paddy Considine as King Viserys, Matt Smith as Prince Daemon and Eve Best as Princess Rhaenys.
Then, there are the other key players, like Steve Toussaint‘s Lord Corys Velaryon, a.k.a. “The Sea Snake.” He’s joined by Fabien Frankel as Ser Criston Cole, Sonoya Mizuno as Mysaria.
