House of the Dragon crew member drops huge season 2 filming update

House of the Dragon: HBO teases thrilling season finale

Speaking to during the 2023 BAFTA Craft awards on Sunday 23, Amanda Knight, Barrie Gower and Rosalia Culora from House of The Dragon’s hair and make-up team dropped some exciting season two updates. 

The trio won the Makeup & Hair Design BAFTA Award for their work on House of The Dragon. 

And with the news of season two of HBO’s hit fantasy drama on the horizon, the big question on everyone’s lips is when will the series return. 

Although the crew member didn’t reveal when fans can expect the series to be back on screens, they did drop that production on season two began this week. 

“We are, tomorrow morning [Monday 24],” hair and makeup artist Rosalia Culora revealed.

That wasn’t the only thing Rosalia dropped as she teased “a really big” character will be introduced to fans next season too. 

She revealed: “We’re establishing a really big character, we can’t say who she is.”

As her co-crew members joked: “And now you know it’s a girl,” Rosalia dropped another big clue as to who the new character could be. 

“…And it’s not a Targaryen,” she claimed, meaning fans will not be meeting another white-haired character in the forthcoming season.

The crew also discussed the pressure they faced living up to the high expectations of the show’s predecessor, Game of Thrones and also dealing with the sheer “scale” of the spin-off itself.

Amanda Knight explained: “It’s the size and the scale of the show, my background is film and this is the first TV [job] that I’ve done with the scale of it.

“They want to film standard work but you know, it’s fast-paced. And it’s you know, we have two units, two things, and it’s massive and we all underestimated it.

“I think everyone including the producer friends they had one job area, and now we have family so it was underestimated by everyone,” she added.

The first season of the HBO series treated fans to a graphic childbirth scene, multiple gruesome deaths and some throwback moments, as it set the scene for the civil war between House Targaryen and House Hightower.

Season two is set to further explore the ongoing conflict between the two major households.

Fans will also delve deeper into the treacherous relationship between Rhaenyra (Milly Alcock) and Alicent (Olivia Cooke) who are set to become scapegoats for more insidious political ploys.

House of the Dragon airs on HBO in the US, and on Sky Atlantic and NOW in the UK.
