Matt Smith and Emma D'Arcy Tease Daemon and Rhaenyra's Fiery Targaryen Bond in the House of the Drag ...

When House of the Dragon goes on sale on Sunday (HBO, 9/8c), it will quickly establish the complicated relationship between plucky Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and her arrogant uncle Daemon Targaryen. And soon afterwards, life in the Red Keep becomes quite interesting.

Matt Smith (Doctor Who, The Crown), who plays Daemon, adds. Theyre both under this sort of enormous pressure. They both form this pressured, intense, focus within the family.

DArcy argues that the issue of gender is a non-negotiable one. Daemon has greater freedom because he is a man in a highly patriarchal society. The rules apply to them in completely different ways, according to DArcy. Rhaenyra sees this guy who is both aweful and unfavorable.
