trailer for the Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon has finally dropped, and it significantly focuses on nonbinary actor Emma D’Arcy’s Rhaenyra Targaryen.D’Arcy will star in the highly-anticipated HBO Max series as Rhaenyra, King Viserys I’s first-born child, who must fight for the throne following her father’s passing.The series, set 300 years prior to Game of Thrones, is inspired by George R.R.

Martin’s 2018 novel Fire & Blood; though, it’s said to be a feminist take on his work.Abundantly obvious from the trailer – Rhaenyra is not your typical princess.

D’Arcy told Entertainment Weekly that the character is “a person who feels at odds with the way that she is read by the world.”She’s uncomfortable with “this label the Realm’s Delight,” they added, “which implies a passivity, being an object of people’s ogling.”But D’Arcy isn’t our typical lead, either.
