One of the best aspects of the new series is that it continues the trend of using character actors. The likes of Aidan Gillan and Conleth Hill stoles scenes in Game of Thrones. House of the Dragon will follow a similar model with Paddy Considine and Matt Smith on board (via Collider).
The latter is one of Britain’s most in-demand actors. He starred in The Crown, Dr. Who, and Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho. Meanwhile, Considine acts, directs, and writes with glowing reviews. These men instantly bring the show’s pedigree to a higher level.
