‘House of the Dragon’ is a prequel series to the epic fantasy novel ‘Game of Thrones’, based on George R. R. Martin’s novel series ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’. The spin-off is set around 200 years before the original series and tells the history of House Targaryen. Robert ASCROFT c/o SEVERIN WENDELER had the honor of photographing and filming the cast in the sacred throne room.
“Thank you to my Emmy magazine family for having me on board for this epic journey!” Robert Ascroft.
The plot of the series is based on the novel series ‘Fire and Blood: Rise and Fall of House Targaryen of Westeros’ by George R. R. Martin, which is written in the style of a historical chronicle and does not follow a typical novel storyline.
The series was filmed mainly in the United Kingdom, in Cornwall and London. Further filming locations included the Spanish town of Cáceres, the castle of Monsanto in Portugal, and Los Angeles. ‘House of the Dragon’ is the first production to be filmed in the converted Warner Bros. Leavesden Studios.
HBO : “Martin and Ryan Condal are co-creators of the series. Miguel Sapochnik and Condal are the showrunners as well as executive producers along with Martin, Sara Hess, Jocelyn Diaz, Vince Gerardis, and Ron Schmidt. Clare Kilner and Geeta Vasant Patel also direct the series. Greg Yaitanes is the director and co-executive producer. Game of Thrones and Westworld composer Ramin Djawadi wrote the score for the series.”
House of the Dragon stars Paddy Considine (HBO’s The Third Day and The Outsider), Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint (It’s a Sin, Doctor Who), Eve Best, Sonoya Mizuno, Fabien Frankel and Rhys Ifans.
