Stunning video of Emilia Clarke as Rhaenyra Targaryen in House of the Dragon


The first season of House of the Dragon ended last year and the second isn’t coming out for a while yet. Whatever will we do in between?

YouTube stryder HD can help us pass the time. Stryder makes excellent deepfake videos, including some themed around House of the Dragon. What would it look like, do you think, if Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones, played Rhaenyra Targaryen in House of the Dragon, in place of actor Emma D’Arcy.

What would Emilia Clarke look like playing Rhaenyra Targaryen on House of the Dragon?

Of course, Clarke is done playing Targaryens. You can next see her in The Pod Generation, a movie set in the near future where she and her partner consider using of incubation technology to aid with a pregnancy.

But D’Arcy will be back as Rhaenyra! And Matt Smith back as Daemon, Olivia Cooke back as Alight Hightower, and so on. Hopefully, we’ll all be watching them go to war with other on HBO and Max come 2024.
