GOT’s Prequel ‘House of the Dragon’ On the Horizon
HBO, the network behind hit series “Game of Thrones,” has begun casting for the show’s prequel “House of the Dragon”, according to reports. Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik will be the showrunners with the latter directing not only the pilot, but also additional episodes of the first season’s 10-episode series.
Recapped reports that “House of the Dragon”, created by novelist George R.R. Martin, is currently casting for two lead roles, Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Queen Alicent Hightower – The fifth king of Targaryen, Viserys’ chosen heiress and second wife. The figures were essential in the Targaryen civil war, better known as the “Dance of Dragons”.
Polygon notes, “In the world and history of “A Song of Ice and Fire”, the Dance of the Dragons began over a royal-succession dispute between Rhaenyra and Alicent. King Viserys I Targaryen’s first wife never gave him a son, so he named his eldest daughter Rhaenyra his heir to the Iron Throne”.
No official breakdown of the cast has been announced yet.

The part I dislike the most about House of the Dragon being the dance is that we all know how it ends: the death of all but one dragon, and the fall of the Targaryen queen after grieving and lossing so much, just to be called a mad tyrant bc ‘women cant rule’.
S8 all over again

Kanye’s Latest Outburst Hits Kris, Kim K
Ye is expressing his rage on microblogging platform, Twitter and the internet is concerned.
Less than 36hours after his first political (yet controversial) rally, the rapper claimed that his wife and mother-in-law, Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner, tried to “lock me up”. “Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday [Sunday]”, tweeted Kanye. “Everybody knows the movie get out is about me.”
His meltdown caused a stir on social media for the better part of Tuesday morning, with a faction claiming “he needs help”. Others even compared him to late YouTuber Etika, who took his own life a year ago following a mental health battle. Kanye has previously confirmed to be dealing with bipolar disorder, something he later attributed to “sleep deprivation”.
