Premium- TV News -Who's Graham McTavish Playing In 'House Of The Dragon'? The Actor Was Spotted On The Set Of The 'Game Of Thrones' Prequel
After touring his home country of Scotland in Men in Kilts and joining the continent for The Witcher Season 2, Graham McTavish is apparently headed to Westeros. Based on paparazzi photos from the set of the Game of Thrones spinoff, it looks like McTavish is in House of the Dragon. Although the casting news of the Outlander star isn't official, the photos sure look like him, leading to speculation about who McTavish is playing in the Game of Thrones universe.
It appears the photo of McTavish on the set of House of the Dragon started circulating on May 9. In the photo shared on Reddit, he seems to be wearing a cream-colored tunic underneath his makeup robe. Besides the robe, the actor is clearly not film-ready as he's wearing his glasses and a face mask over his beard. His signature bald head is also intact.
Although the photo seems evidence enough that he's on the Game of Thrones prequel, McTavish has helped give support to the casting rumors. He posted he was in Cornwall on May 2 — the very same England southwestern county where the BBC reported House of the Dragon appeared to be filming at the end of April. (More paparazzi photos from the Cornwall set can be found here and here.) If the seaside shot wasn't enough, he posted an Instagram video celebrating Men in Kilts premiering in the UK on May 9. He joked he's in a "secret location" in Britain that's notably surrounded by palm trees. And when the Men in Kilts finale aired in the U.S., the New Zealand resident noted in another Instagram video that he was in England for work. At the 14-minute mark, he says he couldn't say what he was working on but that, "I'm here for quite a while."
