House of the Dragon actor Glynn-Carney teases ‘tragic twist’ in season 2

Season 2 is expected to continue exploring the complex characters and power struggles that define the series

House of the Dragon actor Glynn-Carney teased a ” tragic twist” in the much-anticipated second instalment of the series.

  • Following the dramatic events of the first season, viewers are excited to see how the story of the Targaryen civil war, known as the Dance of the Dragons, will unfold.
  • The House of the Dragon cast attended the New York City premiere on June 3 ahead of the season 2 debut on June 16.


In a recent interview with People Magazine at the show’s premiere in New York City, Tom Glynn-Carney, who plays King Aegon II Targaryen, weighed in on his character’s growth in season 2.

Elaborating on his character development after ascending the highly desired Iron Throne, Glynn-Carney said, “So yeah, he’s floundering. But also, there is a guise of his that he’s trying to wear it well. He’s got a bit of a spring in his step. He’s also walking two inches taller than he would do, I think. For the start anyway.”

“He’s finding it exciting. It’s the first time we’ve seen Aegon with purpose. He’s never had purpose before,” he said, adding, “So this is the first time he’s had a reason to get out of bed and he’s a family man now, or the closest to his version of a family man.”

He went on to add, “Don’t want to spoil anything. But look, when something as tragic as a tragic thing happens, it leaves a stain on a human being to the point of probably no return.”

“It’s a dangerous thing to happen to a very vulnerable and fragile and volatile human being. So, God bless America,” the actor concluded.

The series, based on George R.R. Martin’s “Fire & Blood,” delves into the history of House Targaryen and promises more political intrigue, epic battles, and, of course, dragon action.
