‘House of the Dragon’ Comic-Con Panel to Include Cast Members Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Eve Best and More

The HBO series will also have an immersive activation on site at SDCC


The Targaryens are making their way to Hall H next month.

On Tuesday, HBO revealed the cast members from “House of the Dragon” that will attend the series’ San Diego Comic-Con panel. The list includes Paddy Considine, Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, Graham McTavish, Milly Alcock and Emily Carey.

George R.R. Martin will also be involved in the panel, along with co-showrunners Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik. The panel will be moderated by podcast host Jason Concepcion.

HBO is also bringing back its signature “Game of Thrones” activations for the event. During Comic-Con, fans can find themselves transported to a Targaryen-ruled Westeros with the immersive experience “House of the Dragon: The Dragon’s Den.”

In the experience, attendees will be guided through a ceremonial dragon hatching experience. Walking in a Targaryen’s footsteps, each person will step from our world into the sights and sounds of King’s Landing, interacting with people of the city, selecting their own dragon egg, and bravely demonstrating they are worthy of a bond with a dragon.

Fans will eventually find themselves in the Throne Room, where, for the first time, fans will be able to see and sit on the new Targaryen-era Iron Throne for a photo moment, acknowledging the reign of Fire and Blood in this infamous era of Westeros.

Once they have proven themselves true Targaryens, each person will hatch their personalized, virtual dragon egg in a new augmented reality app, “House of the Dragon: DracARys.” They’ll then be able to “raise” their dragon at home.

Participants of “House of the Dragon: The Dragon’s Den” will receive exclusive access to the app’s dragon hatching features before the app begins its global rollout and unlocks full functionality on July 25. The experience will be open to all Comic-Con badge holders.
