With House of the Dragon now at its midway point, and about to see a significant time-jump between episodes 5 and 6, viewers have been given their first glimpse of David and Georgia Tennant’s son Ty in the series.
From episode 6 of the show, Ty Tennant plays an older version of Aegon Targaryen, the son of King Viserys and Alicent Hightower who we first saw as a toddler in episode 3.
While we have yet to see Ty in action in the series, the episode 6 trailer does reveal a number of shots of him, in which Aegon appears to be told that he will be king, despite his half-sister Rhaenyra having been named heir.
You can get a glimpse of Ty in the trailer right here.
Ty Tennant is 20 years old, and his previous screen credits have included small parts in Tolkien, Doom Patrol, Casualty and Around the World in 80 Days, while he also played Tom Gresham in the Fox/Canal+ series War of the Worlds.
He will stand alongside the rest of the House of the Dragon cast, which from next week will also feature Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke, who take over from Milly Alcock and Emily Carey as Rhaenyra Targaryen and Alicent Hightower respectively.
This is due to a 10-year time-jump following the last episode, which also sees Paddy Considine, Matt Smith and other actors aged up with make-up and wig alterations.
Regarding the show’s structure, showrunner Ryan Condal said before it aired: “This is how you tell this story correctly. We’re telling a story of a generational war. We set everything up so by the time that first sword stroke falls, you understand all the players.”
