House of the Dragon, the new Games of Thrones prequel series, has conflicting feelings for Peter Dinklage. The actor, who won multiple honours for his portrayal of Tyrion Lannister in the original HBO series, including an Emmy, was a recent guest on Marc Maron's WTF podcast, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The two talked about Dinklage's life and career before getting to the most obvious part of the conversation: Game of Thrones, which Maron acknowledged he had never seen because he is "not a fantasy guy." Nonetheless, he assured Dinklage that he was aware of how much fans of the series and Tyrion, his character, adored him.

Before bringing up House of the Dragon, Dinklage mentioned how divisive the final season was, which he ascribed to viewers "not wanting to say goodbye to it." He clarified that neither Dinklage nor any other Game of Thrones cast members will appear in the prequel series.

Maron probed further. He went on to say that House of the Dragon is going to be a fantastic show in his opinion. He thinks it'll be incredible because the director and producer worked on Game of Thrones

On the other hand, HBO took a chance on their show. Although it was a slow start, he asked, "Why don't they try it again?" He said the House of the Dragon is not in danger as it's a tried-and-true method that works.

Maron highlighted Succession as an example of good risk, while Dinklage concurred, stating he was a big fan of the show.

Meanwhile, the first 10-episode season of House of the Dragon will launch this year, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The series will stream on HBO Max.
