Fabien Frankel has been cast in HBO’s upcoming epic fantasy series, House of the Dragon. He will play the role of Ser Criston Cole.

While relatively new on the acting scene, Frankel has previously starred alongside Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke in the recent movie, Last Christmas. In addition to this, he also starred in the co-production between BBC One and Netflix, The Serpent, according to Variety.

Frankel will join fellow cast members Olivia Cooke, Paddy Considine, Emma D’Arcy, Matt Smith, Steve Toussaint, Rhys Ifans, Eve Best, and Sonoya Mizuno in House of the Dragon.

George R. R. Martin breaks the news via his blog

The news first came via author George R. R. Martin’s official blog.

Martin regularly updates fans about upcoming projects relating to both Game of Thrones and House of the Dragon. Sometimes this comes ahead of HBO’s wishes and, other times, it is because of their request.

As Fansided points out, it has been a long time since Martin has made a casting announcement for HBO. However, it is possible, with House of the Dragon being a new production for HBO, they might have resorted to their older tactics when it comes to making announcements on House of the Dragon.
