Actor Fabien Frankel has landed a starring role on HBO’s upcoming “Game of Thrones” prequel.

The Brit, who appeared opposite “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke in 2019’s “Last Christmas“, has been cast as Ser Criston Cole – a member of King Viserys I Targaryen’s Kingsguard – on the upcoming “House of the Dragon“.

In a post on his blog, author George R.R. Martin described the character as a knight whose bold actions helped pave the way to civil war.

“He is the common-born son of the steward to the Lord of Blackhaven,” he teased. “He has no claim to lands or titles, all he has is his honor and his skill with sword and lance.”

“He is a challenger, a champion, cheered by the commons, beloved of the ladies. He is a lover [or is he?], a seducer [or is he?], a betrayer [or is he?], a breaker of hearts and a maker of kings.”

“Welcome to Westeros, Fabien. And do keep that sword sharp.”

Set 300 years before the events in “Game of Thrones”, “House of the Dragon” is based on George R.R. Martin’s book “Fire Blood.” It will tell the story of House Targaryen, the ancestors of Clarke’s character, Daenerys Targaryen.

Production is expected to start in the U.K. in April with a planned 2022 release. Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Condal will share the showrunner duties. The former will serve as the pilot and additional episodes’ director.

Frankel is added to the cast ensemble that included Paddy Considine, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Matt Smith, Steve Toussaint, Rhys Ifans, Eve Best and Sonoya Mizuno.
