Winter isn’t exactly coming anytime soon, but Game Of Thrones was certainly back on Monday evening as the UK premiere of House Of The Dragon season two launched in London. 

The show, a prequel to the enormously successful HBO adaptation of George RR Martin’s fantasy novels, follows the feud between Alicent and Rhaenyra as they vie for who will eventually rule from the Iron Throne. 

But the swords were thankfully sheathed as the show’s cast descended on the Odeon Luxe in a teeming Leicester Square. 

Leading the way were show stars Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy and Ewan Mitchell, with all three dominating the green carpet as proceedings got underway. 

Matt – who plays the rebellious Daemon Targaryen – looked appropriately dapper in a generously cut navy trouser-suit as he greeted onlookers at the special event.

The actor, 41, was joined by glamorous co-star Olivia, who traded the regal gowns worn by Alicent Hightower in favour of an elegant off-the-shoulder evening dress. 

With a bold statement neck chain serving as a prominent focal point, the actress, 30, ensured she claimed her own share of the spotlight ahead of Monday’s launch.

She was matched by screen rival Emma, who revealed a distinctive House Of The Dragon inspired teeth grill as she joined her co-stars. 

The 32-year old star, Rhaenyra Targaryen in the hit show, had already commanded plenty of attention courtesy of her striking two-tone trouser suit. 

Elsewhere rising star Ewan, 27, turned heads in a striking crimson velvet coat – a far cry from the battle armour worn by the ambitious Aemond Targaryen. 

He went shirtless beneath the jacket and completed the look with a pair of quirky trousers along with pair of eye catching pointed shoes.
