Matt Smith joined Doctor Who in 2010, taking on the role of the Eleventh Doctor. He’s now stepping into the Game of Thrones franchise, starring in the prequel series House of the Dragon.
Smith portrays Prince Daemon Targaryen. Yep, Targaryen, the same last name as Daenerys, the Mother of Dragons.
The 10-part series tells the story of the House of Targaryen and is set 200 years before the fall of the throne.
In the newly released trailer, we hear the ambitious prince say, “Dreams didn’t make us kings. Dragons did.”

In a GalaxyCon interview from last year, Smith talked about joining the series, saying, "I’m just sort of looking forward to riding a few dragons…if I get to."
Smith stars opposite Paddy Considine, who is set to take on the role of King Viserys, Daemon’s older brother.
The forthcoming series is based on author George R.R. Martin’s novel Fire & Blood, with him co-writing the series with Ryan J. Condal (Colony).
House of the Dragon is set to premiere in 2022 over at HBO. 
In the meantime, you can look for Smith in Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho, in theaters on October 29.
