On House of the Dragon, and how it compares to Game of Thrones:Ryan [Condal] and Miguel [Sapochnik] did a great job. Miguel, you know, directed the original. They’ve done a very, very difficult thing, I think, in that it feels wholly its own. It is focused on one family, which I think is interesting. It’s a bit more focused on the Targaryens, a high drama family for sure. So it feels very much its own but also within the Game of Thrones world.”

On more spinoffs: “There were speculations about that…I’m not motivated here by any sort of, ‘We need three Game of Thrones spinoffs.’ To state the obvious, we’ve got one Game of Thrones show greenlit, and that’s House of the Dragon. And we’re really excited about that. There are other ones in development. We will greenlight something when we feel like something is exciting and well done and tells a story that we care about. It’s like any development. So there’s no guarantee that anything’s going to go… [We’re] not trying to fill a schedule with a new prequel every year or anything like that. It’s just based on what stories we’re excited about telling.”

On whether there’s a chance more spinoffs won’t happen: “Yeah. By the way, this is not specific to Game of Thrones. Typically speaking, we don’t put something on just to try to fill a slot. We’re trying to fulfill what we think is the HBO brand promise, which is quality shows that feel interesting [and] different. But we’re not doing it just to fill a slot. And that wouldn’t change for Game of Thrones, either. That said, there’s development that we’re certainly excited by.”

One of the show’s stars is speaking out about the controversial finale.
