Emily, who will play the younger Alicent Hightower, looked incredible as she showed off her toned waist under the low-cut satin dress, which she paired with barely-there silver heels.

The beauty swept her raven locks into a sleek bun while accentuating her features with a glamorous makeup palette.

Meanwhile, Matt, who portrays Prince Daemon, cut a sharp figure in a gray suit and shirt, finished off with sleek black shoes.

The duo looked in high spirits as they joined the rest of the cast and crew for a group photo as the countdown to the House of the Dragon release date continues.

The dragons return as the series will focus on House Targaryen and their reign in Westeros 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones.

The ten-episode spin-off follows the bitter and brutal civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons.

The HBO series was created by GOT writer George RR Martin and is based on his book Fire & Blood.

Showrunners Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik, a director of GOT, are helping to create the series.

The first teaser trailer was released in May 2022, three years after GOT’s finale, The Iron Throne.

HBO released the official House of the Dragon trailer two months later, giving fans a good look at what to expect.

All together: (LR) Alexis Raben, Steve Toussaint, Olivia Cooke, Emily Carey, Fabien Frankel, Ryan Condal, Milly Alcock, Emma d'Arcy and Matt Smith

Paddy Considine will play King Viserys I, head of the Targaryen family. Emmy D’Arcy becomes Princess Rhaenrya, Viserys’ first child and heir apparent, and Matt Smith becomes Prince Daemon, Viserys’ younger brother.

There are also non-Targaryen actors in the key cast, including Rhys Ifans, who will play Ser Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King; Olivia Cooke becomes Otto’s daughter, Lady Alicent Hightower (who becomes Queen in the book if she marries Viserys); and Fabien Frankel will be Ser Criston Cole, a knight who loves Princess Rhaenrya.

Meanwhile, Milly Alcock will play a young Rhaenyra while Emily Carey will play a young Alicent.

Rounding out the cast are Sonyo Mizuno, who will play Mysaria, Prince Daemon’s mistress, and Eve Best and Steve Toussaint, who will portray married royals Princess Rhaenys Velaryon and Lord Corlys Velaryon.

The Velaryons are a notable change from the book, in the adaptation they are wealthy black rulers.

Co-showrunner Ryan Condal told Entertainment Weekly, “It was very important to Miguel [Sapochnik] and I to create a show that wasn’t just another bunch of white guys on screen.

“We wanted to find a way to bring diversity to the show, but we didn’t want to do it in a way that felt like it was an afterthought or, worse, tokenism.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, viewers can expect several multi-year jumps in House of the Dragon, unlike GOT, which is the story of a royal family gone mad with power and wealth.

According to Miguel, House of Dragons follows four different characters attempting to claim the throne.

He said: “There are the king, his brother, the king’s daughter and her best friend. Then the best friend becomes the king’s wife and therefore the queen.’

Essentially, the story is what if your best friend hooked up with your father?, which wouldn’t exactly raise eyebrows from the Targaryens, who are used to incest.

The Iron Thone-hungry characters conspire to rule after the death of the philanthropic King Viserys I Targaryen (Paddy Considine).

Viserys planned to make his firstborn child – Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen (Milly Alcock) – the first reigning Queen of the Seven Kingdoms.

But Viserys’ hellish brother Prince Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith) and a whole host of other men in power have other ideas in the series, which jumps in time a decade midway.

The wait is over: the $200 million budget House of Targaryen story, set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, will reveal all 10 episodes starting August 21 on HBO

Princess Rhaenys Velaryon (Eve Best) – who was passed over as queen by her cousin Viserys – warns Rhaenyra, “A woman would not inherit the Iron Throne, for that is the way of things.”

Rhaenyra defiantly replies in the trailer: “When I am queen, I will create a new order.”

Emilia Clarke will not reprise her role as Daenerys Targaryen. Since the show takes place centuries before the events of GOT, it makes no sense for her character to be part of the plot
