The Queen of The Seven Kingdoms are back to claim her throne. The hit HBO fantasy House of the Dragon’s season two is all set to hit out screens this June. Amid of the hype of the much-anticipated series actors Emma D’Arcy and Matt Smith who plays the role of Rhaenyra and Daemon Targaryen respectively in the Game of Thrones prequel opened up about what the fans can expect to see their relationship in season two of the series. The duo in an interview with Entertainment Tonight at the season two premiere at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Monday unveiled a lot of facts. Let’s check out what they have said.

Emma D’Arcy and Matt Smith’s character will be in a state of grief in House of Dragon 2

Emma D’Arcy who plays the role of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen who is married to her uncle Daemon Targaryen is battling to get back her throne from her half-brother Aegon Targaryen said, “We meet them both in a state of deep grief. [And] they’re two bereaved people who really struggle to communicate.”

D’Arcy added of the characters of Rhaenyra and Daemon, “They’re not good communicators. and actually, I think something about their dynamic means that they are not willing to show weakness to one another. This is sort of a fundamental flaw in their relationship. They don’t want to be seen to be weak.”

They added, “So I think… it’s gonna be bumpy.”

Meanwhile, Smith who is recurring his role of Prince Daemon Targaryen said of season 2, “We pick up in a very complicated situation. There’s a lot of grief flying around in the air and I think, you know, Daemon is doing things that he thinks are for the benefit of the family. [Things] he’s sort of duty bound to do really.”

However, the actor noted that his character’s actions and ambition “invariably creates a deeper fragmentation between” them.

“In many ways, he’s sort of on his own path. They’re a complicated bunch,”Smith added as Emma puts in, “I think grief is a major motor for the show as a whole and certainly for Rhaenyra’s sort of narrative arc through the series.”

D’Arcy later on said that the”political designs have never felt more personally important” this season.

They also added,”I think for Rhaenyra, particularly, her inheritance, sitting the Iron Throne, her name in the Targaryen histories, all of these feel like a way to remain closer to her father. Her late father. So yeah, sitting on the throne is a fundamental personal need now, as well as a sort of political aim.”

Season 2 of House of the Dragon will start streaming from June 16 on HBO.
