The trailer gives a brief look at HBO’s upcoming prequel, events, and what’s in store for the upcoming iconic characters.

The show appears to take inspiration from its predecessor as the teaser featured scenes of sword fights, jousting, as well as intricate sets, distinctive costumes, dark lightning bolts and the Iron Throne itself – now with more spikes.

The cast also includes Jefferson Hall as Lord Jason Lannister, David Horovitch as Grand Maester Mellos, and Graham McTavish as Ser Harrold Westerling.

Corr has been busy lately, recently starring in three shows: Wakefield, Hungry Ghosts and The Secrets She Keeps.

He also had a small role in the 2020 Australian film, High Ground.
