“Game of Thrones” Prequel Unveils Cast

Peter Claffey and Dexter Sol Ansell will star in the HBO Original drama series A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS: THE HEDGE KNIGHT. Claffey will play the role of Dunk and Ansell will play Egg.

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.

Claffey is an actor and former Connacht Rugby player with credits in Apple TV’s “Bad Sisters” (2022) and “Wreck” (2022). Claffey’s upcoming projects include starring opposite Cillian Murphy in “Small Things Like These” and season 3 of Netflix’s “Vikings: Valhalla.”
