After Game of Thrones became a huge hit for HBO, it was only a matter of time before the other books in George R.R. Martin’s series were adapted as well. Fire & Blood, set in the same universe but two centuries earlier, was a natural choice, and it’s been turned into the prequel House of the Dragon, which recently premiered on HBO. Martin, who serves as co-creator and an executive producer on the project, says it’s been a big thrill to see more of the world he’s created on the page come to life on the screen.
