‘House of the Dragon’ Producer Vastly Underestimated What Matt Smith’s Appeal Would Do to the Internet

Matt Smith as Daemon Targaryen in House of the Dragon

Daemon Targaryen is, for the most part, everyone’s favorite character to talk about on House of the Dragon. Or at least he’s my favorite character to talk about. But he has become something of a boyfriend for fans of the series online and for good reason: Matt Smith is playing him. The Doctor Who star brought his charm and allure to Westeros, and we were all instantly goners.

So, to me, there’s no shock in the obsession that Twitter has for Smith and Daemon. It makes sense. that doesn’t seem to be the case with the creative team, though. The Hollywood Reporter sat down with writer and executive producer Sara Hess and director Clare Kilner to talk about House of the Dragon about the upcoming finale and one of the first questions asked was about Daemon and the internet’s love for him. Hess was the first to talk about how she doesn’t understand the boyfriend-ification of him.
