All Filming Updates for HBO’s ‘A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS’

Production has begun on HBO’s latest entry to their Game of Thrones/World of Ice and Fire universe, and we’re here to give you a rundown on all the information you need about the new series.

 

This page will be continuously updated as new filming information is released.

 

Title and Synopsis


So far, HBO has toyed with a variety of similar names for the series. At first, the show was titled ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight,‘ and then ‘The Hedge Knight,’ which transformed into ‘Dunk and Egg,’ and now holds the title ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.’


The official synopsis of the series is as follows:


“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.”

Cast


At this early stage in production, only two character castings have been announced and released to the public: our two main protagonists of the series, ‘Dunk and Egg.’ There remain many other roles to be cast and will likely be announced as production of the series goes on, potentially right up to its premiere.


Peter Claffey will star as Ser Duncan the Tall.


Ser Duncan the Tall, otherwise famously known as “Dunk” in the “Tales of Dunk and Egg,” is a towering and strong man from the slums of Flea Bottom. He was raised and trained by a hedge knight named Ser Arlan of Pennytree. After Ser Arlan's death, Dunk adopts the title of Ser Duncan the Tall and becomes a hedge knight, embodying the chivalric ideals of honor, bravery, and kindness.


Peter is a former rugby player turned actor who is 6'5 tall. His audition readings were said to be "terrific."


 

Dexter Sol Ansell will star as Aegon V Targaryen.


Aegon V Targaryen, otherwise famously known as “Egg,” in the “Tales of Dunk and Egg,” is a young prince who disguises his identity by shaving his head to travel as the squire of Ser Duncan the Tall, a hedge knight. Egg is intelligent, curious, and compassionate, displaying humility and a strong sense of justice.


Dexter is a child acting veteran who recently starred as a child Coriolanus Snow in The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes. We have been told that Dexter's audition readings were great as well and that he cannot wait to shave his head.


Dexter has shaved his head in preparation for filming.
