Matt Smith is best known to sci-fi fans for his goofy, bowtie-wearing portrayal of the Eleventh Doctor on Doctor Who. Now, Smith is entering another mega-franchise by taking on the role of Daemon Targaryen in HBO’s new Game of Thrones prequel show, House of the Dragon. He’ll also be joining the Marvel universe in the role of Loxias Crown, a.k.a. Hunger, in Sony’s vampiric comic book movie Morbius. Whether you are a lifelong Whovian, a Game of Thrones obsessive, or a fan of Smith’s role in The Crown, you can express your love for the versatile actor with these collectibles.

House of the Dragon takes place over 100 years before Game of Thrones, so even though we won’t see Daenerys and her dragons, we’ll get to see her ancestors flying around. Matt Smith will be playing her six-time great grandfather Daemon Targaryen. Aegon the Conqueror, the first lord of the Seven Kingdoms, is Daemon’s second-great grandfather, who brought the dynastic family to the shores of Westeros after the Doom of Valyria. This coin, emblazoned with the words of House Targaryen, symbolizes the fighting spirit of the family.

Though Smith was primarily seen in his professor-like duds as the Eleventh Doctor, complete with a tweed jacket, bowtie, and suspenders, he also dabbled in other looks. When River Song asks the Doctor what is on his head, he says, “It’s a fez. I wear a fez now. Fezzes are cool.” And thus, an obsession was born.

When each new Doctor arrives, they get their own sonic screwdriver, and the TARDIS usually changes to match their personality. Though the listing for this product it’s the sonic screwdriver used by the Twelfth Doctor, played by Peter Capaldi, it isn’t.
