Alicent’s son, Aemond, loses an eye during an altercation with Rhaenyra’s three sons, resulting in Alicent calling for one of Rhaenyra’s sons to suffer the same fate.

Whether the storyline will unfold in the same way in live-action is currently unclear.

Other members of the cast joining Olivia in House of the Dragon include Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon, Eve Best as Princess Rhaenys Velaryon, Sonoya Mizuno as Mysaria and Fabien Frankel as Ser Criston Col.

During an interview earlier this year, Game of Thrones star Kit Harington admitted that he would find it difficult to watch the spin-off.

‘It’s my good friend Miguel [Sapochnik] who’s show-running it, I’ve got a friend Matt in it, so I’m looking forward to it but it’s gonna be hard,’ he said.
