HBO Casts Lead Actor for 'Game of Thrones' Prequel Series: Paddy Considine!

Paddy Considine has been cast in the lead role for the upcoming HBO series House of the Dragon, a prequel to the smash hit series Game of Thrones!

The 47-year-old actor most recently starred in HBO’s series The Outsider and he’s currently appearing in the new HBO series The Third Day. You might also know him from roles in movies like The Bourne Ultimatum and Cinderella Man, as well as the series Peaky Blinders.

Variety reports that Paddy will play “King Viserys I, who chosen by the lords of Westeros to succeed the Old King, Jaehaerys Targaryen, at the Great Council at Harrenhal. A warm, kind, and decent man, Viserys only wishes to carry forward his grandfather’s legacy. But good men do not necessarily make for great kings.”

House of the Dragon will tell the story of House Targaryen and it takes place a few hundred years before the events in Game of Thrones. HBO has ordered a 10-episode first season, which is expected to debut in 2022.

Cynthia Erivo Reacts to BAFTAs' All-White Acting Nominees

Cynthia Erivo walks the red carpet at the premiere of her new HBO series The Outsider on Thursday night (January 9) at the DGA Theater in Los Angeles.

The 33-year-old actress was joined at the event by co-stars Jason Bateman and his wife Amanda Anka, Julianne Nicholson, Yul Vazquez, Paddy Considine, Sir Brodie, and Derek Cecil.

Cynthia starred in the recent movie Harriet and she received acting nominations from the Golden Globes, the Critics’ Choice Awards, and the SAG Awards… but the BAFTAs snubbed her of a nomination. Not only that, but the BAFTAs only nominated white actors this year.

“It’s disappointing to see that we’ve got to this point in time and we’ve had such wonderful advancement in inclusion and diversity, and the films this year were beautiful, such wonderful stories told, and to not have that represented in an awards show like the BAFTAs is just disappointing really,” Cynthia told Variety in response to the non-diverse nominees.

Cynthia was asked to perform at the BAFTAs, but she declined to perform after seeing the list of nominees.

“The reason I didn’t perform is because I don’t think it’s proper representation, as a woman of color, of people of color in this industry,” she said.
