If Emilia ever does want to dive into House of the Dragon, she’ll get an extensive history lesson about Daenerys’ backstory.
Based on the Fire & Blood novel by George R. R. Martin, the first season—which starred Paddy Considine, Emma D’Arcy, Matt Smith, Tom Glynn-Carney, Milly Alcock, Emily Carey, Olivia Cooke and Rhys Ifans—takes place 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones when House Targaryen reigned over Westeros.
Emilia isn’t the only former Game of Thrones cast member who expressed some hesitation about watching the prequel series.
In October 2021, Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow, told Insider, “I think to see people get into outfits and costumes, that resemble what we wore for all those years, and it [has] the same music and style and tone, but not be in it is always going to feel. There’s going to be a rawness there.”
