Graham McTavish of Outlander gives an update on the Game of Thrones prequel, which is “nearly finished.”

On Zoe Ball’s breakfast show on Tuesday, OUTLANDER star Graham McTavish was joined by long-time collaborator Sam Heughan and revealed more about his role in the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel.

The world of Westeros will be explored once more in House of the Dragon, the long-awaited follow-up to Game of Thrones.

Outlander’s Sam teased the new season of Starz’ time-traveling drama on BBC Radio 2’s Tuesday morning show, while Graham had some exciting news about HBO’s highly anticipated fantasy.

Graham confirmed that his covert new role in the upcoming Game of Thrones spin-off is nearly over.

Season one of House of the Dragon will premiere next year, and it is expected to usher in a new era for the popular fantasy franchise.

Dougal Mackenzie, who starred in Outlander, will play Ser Harrold Westerling, an elderly knight of the Kingsguard.

On Tuesday, he confirmed to Zoe that the first installment’s production is nearly complete.

He was able to say, “Actually, we’re almost done filming.”

“We’ve been filming since March, so pretty much the whole year.”

Outlander star Graham’s role in the series was only revealed when he was spotted in costume on the set of the show in Cornwall.

His role in the show had remained a mystery until then, despite the fact that the majority of the main cast had been confirmed in December of last year.

Paddy Considine, a British actor, was the first to be revealed in October, followed by Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, and Emma D’Arcy.

Graham’s role was confirmed after he was spotted on set in May, along with Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, and Sonoya Mizuno.

Sam inquired if Graham would be playing the show’s titular dragon, eager to learn more about the role.

“I assure you, I am not the dragon,” he stated flatly to Sam and Zoe’s disappointment.


“I know,” he laughed.

I wanted to play the dragon, but it had already been taken.”

The Outlander star also revealed that his portrayal of Ser Harrold will buck a trend he has been cultivating throughout his career.

“I was slightly annoyed,” Graham admitted when Zoe asked if his character’s name started with a D.

“I found out that his middle name starts with a D, so D has to be involved in any character I play.”
