THE HEDGE KNIGHT Casts Its Leads — GeekTyrant

The series is set a century before the events of Game of Thrones, “two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros… a young, naïve but courageous knight, Ser Duncan the Tall (Claffey), and his diminutive squire, Egg (Ansell).”

Set in an age “when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne, and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living memory, great destinies, powerful foes, and dangerous exploits all await these improbable and incomparable friends.”

Martin and Ira Parker are writers and executive producers on the new series. Martin has published three novellas in the “Tales of Dunk and Egg” series to date.

Those include The Hedge Knight (1998), The Sworn Sword (2003), and The Mystery Knight (2010). A collection of the three novellas, with illustrations by Gary Gianni, was published as A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms in 2015.

This is the second prequel series to be picked up by Max, after last year’s House of the Dragon.
