Peter Claffey in A Knight of the Seven Kingdom
A first look at Irish actor Peter Claffey on the set of new Game of Thrones spin-off, A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, has been revealed. The series is currently filming in Belfast.

The first image from the set of A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms has been released, featuring lead actor and former rugby player Peter Claffey (Wreck) as Ser Duncan the Tall. The image comes from Titanic Studios, Belfast where the new series is currently filming. The production hub was also home to the original Game of Thrones series.

The upcoming prequel series is described as follows:
“A century before the events of Game of Thrones, two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros. Ayoung, naïve but courageous knight, Ser Duncan the Tall, and his diminutive squire, Egg.”
“Set in an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living memory, great destinies, powerful foes, and dangerous exploits all await these improbable and incomparable friends.”

The project has added several new actors: Finn Bennett (True Detective) as Aerion Targaryen, Bertie Carvel (Doctor Foster) as Baelor Targaryen, Tanzyn Crawford (Tiny Beautiful Things) as Tanselle, Daniel Ings (The Gentlemen) as Ser Lyonel Baratheon and Sam Spruell (Fargo) as Maekar Targaryen.

Sarah Adina Smith (Lessons In Chemistry) has joined the production to direct three of the season’s six episodes. Owen Harris (Black Mirror), will also direct three out of six episodes for the first season. Ira Parker (House of the Dragon) and Martin Parker are adapting the story for the screen, as well as serving as executive producers.

The series is based upon the Tales of Dunk and Egg novella trilogy, with future seasons following subsequent novellas in the trilogy if the first series is a success, according to author George RR Martin.
