One of the creators of “The Dragon Family” Miguel Sapochnik in an interview with “Empire”, where the idea came from to make two women the main characters. It turns out that he was suggested by his wife, who works with him on productions:
One day she said, “It would be interesting if the main characters were women, not men. If you focus on how the patriarchy sees women, on the fact that men will destroy each other rather than put a woman on the throne.” It was a perspective that I had never told before. I think that makes the show more contemporary because of that.
“The Dragon Family” coming soon to HBO and HBO Max. The creators will remain faithful to George RR Martin’s book
In “The Dragon Family” we will meet Rhaenyr (Milly Alcock plays her in childhood and Emma D’Arcy as an adult), the only daughter of King Viserys and the controversial heir to the throne, and Alicent Hightower (Emily Carey as a child and then Olivia Cooke), her a childhood friend and daughter of the King’s Hand. The girls were very close to each other, but politics makes them stand on both sides of the barricade.
He also talked about the fact that they would remain faithful to George RR Martin’s book, although the accents would sometimes be placed elsewhere.
Many people wonder how sexual violence will be portrayed in this patriarchal world. In “Game of Thrones” we sometimes watched brutal and very vivid prices, which many viewers and reviewers criticized. Sapochnik, who has directed many episodes of “Game of Thrones” and serves as executive producer on “The Dragon’s House”, says in an interview with Hollywood Reporter that they will approach the subject carefully and prudently, but will not run away from it. – You cannot ignore the violence at that time [gdy rozgrywa się akcja “Rodu moka – red.] were performed on women by men. It should not be ignored or glorified – he said. Vanity Fair asked another person associated with the production about this issue. Executive Producer Sara Hess:
We do not show sexual violence in the series. We leave it off-screen and instead show what effect it has on the victim and the perpetrator’s mother.
The HBO series “House of the Dragon” is based on the book “Fire and Blood” by George RR Martin. It tells the whole story of the Targaryen family. The events presented in it take place 200 years before the times presented in “Game of Thrones”.
