Game of Thrones spinoff A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms goes on floors, first look out

The makers of Game of Thrones spinoff A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight have announced that the series has officially gone on floors in Belfast, Ireland. They have also released the first look poster of the leading man Peter Claffey as Ser Duncan "Dunk" the Tall.

Ordered to series in April 2023, the prequel is based on George R.R. Martin‘s Dunk & Egg fantasy novellas and takes place roughly 100 years before Game of Thrones. It tells the story of Ser Duncan the Tall and his squire Aegon V Targaryen, also known as Dunk and Egg.

Dexter Sol Ansell (who recently portrayed Young Coriolanus Snow in The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes) plays Egg. Apart from Peter Claffey and Dexter, the film also stars Finn Bennett as Aerion Targaryen, Bertie Carvel as Baelor Targaryen, Tanzyn Crawford as play Tanselle, Daniel Ings as Ser Lyonel Baratheon, and Sam Spruell as Maekar Targaryen.

The official logline says, "A century before the events of Game of Thrones, two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros… a young, naïve but courageous knight, Ser Duncan the Tall, and his diminutive squire, Egg. Set in an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne, and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living memory, great destinies, powerful foes, and dangerous exploits all await these improbable and incomparable friends."

While Owen Harris, best known for directing the Black Mirror episodes 'San Junipero' and 'Be Right Back', will direct three of the show's six episodes, the other three will be directed by Sarah Adina Smith. Martin and Ira Parker are writers and executive producers on the show. Ryan Condal, Vince Gerardis, Owen Harris, and Sarah Bradshaw also executive produce.
