Three pictures from the set can be seen on the series’ official Twitter account. The first shows Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (played by Emma D’Arcy) and Prince Daemon Targaryen (played by Matt Smith). HBO also gives a short description of the individual characters in a press release, as reported by “BuzzFeed News”. The station explains to Rhaenyra Targaryen: “The firstborn child of the king, she is of pure Valyrian blood and she is a dragon rider. Many would say that Rhaenyra was born with everything … but she was not born a human.”

Daemon Targaryen, on the other hand, is described as follows: “The younger brother of King Viserys and heir to the throne. An incomparable warrior and a dragon rider, Daemon possesses the true blood of the dragon. But it is said that the gods throw a coin in the air when a Targaryen to be born.”

A second picture shows the character The Sea Snake, played by Steve Toussaint, standing on a cliff. “As ‘The Sea Snake’, the most famous nautical adventurer in Westeros history, Lord Corlys built his home into a powerful seat that is even richer than the Lannisters and claims the largest navy in the world,” the official said.

Last but not least, another picture shows Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower and Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower.

Otto Hightower, on the other hand, is the “hand of the king” according to the official description. For him, the greatest threat to the kingdom is the brother’s king, Daemon.
