‘House of the Dragon’ episode 6: New timeline, new cast

House of the Dragon episode 6: Prepare yourselves for a major jump in the timeline, and a new cast.

Based on Fire & Blood by George R. R. Martin, writer of the much-loved Game of Thrones, we would be lying if we said we didn’t know a cast change was coming to his new series the House of the Dragon.

Less shock, more anticipation tbh for the new faces that are set to take over from episode 6 of House of the Dragon. Fast forward about ten years, following the wedding of Rhaenyra Targaryen to Laenor Velaryon, and you have two new main characters and a bit of aging up of a few of the supporting cast members.
