Nikolaj Coster-Waldau recently said he has yet to bring himself to watch HBO‘s Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon.

The actor, who famously portrayed Jaime Lannister in the original HBO show, told Entertainment Weekly that he “had not” seen the prequel series but once inadvertently caught the opening title sequence.

“One day it came on and I saw the opening credits,” he said. “And it was a little strange because it was the same music and the title sequence was kind of similar. I was like, ‘Ah, this is too soon. Too soon.’”

He isn’t however planning on avoiding the show altogether. “I’ll wait. I’ll give it a couple of seasons, then I can binge watch it and then there’s the whole thing,” the actor added. “But I know that so many people love that show, and I’m really happy for them.”

House of the Dragon is set 200 years prior to the events of Game of Thrones and follows the war of succession within House Targaryen. The show is based on George R.R. Martin’s Targaryen history novel Fire & Blood.

The series was renewed for Season 2 by HBO in August last year. The forthcoming season will have eight episodes as opposed to ten and is expected to premiere in summer 2024.

Martin spoke about the series on his blog last year, explaining that it would take four seasons to tell the entire story.

“I am thrilled that we still have 10 hours every season to tell our tale,” Martin wrote, prior to the number of episodes being reduced. “I hope that will continue to be true. It is going to take four full seasons of 10 episodes each to do justice to the Dance of the Dragons, from start to finish.”

The show’s co-creator and showrunner Ryan Condal recently revealed that the second season will feature five new dragons.
