Outlander’s Graham McTavish was recently spotted on the set of House of the Dragon, and has finally detailed more about his secretive new role for HBO. The Scottish star also revealed the chances of his co-star Sam Heughan joining him away from the Starz network for the new Game of Thrones prequel.
House of the Dragon has officially welcomed Outlander’s Graham McTavish after the Scottish actor was spotted on the set of the upcoming series.
The eagerly awaited first spin-off to HBO’s fantasy epic Game of Thrones is currently filming its first season in Cornwall.
McTavish is best known for his recurring role as Dougal Mackenzie, but has also appeared in The Hobbit franchise and is set to play a major part in the upcoming second season of The Witcher.
Little is known about his next role in the new Thrones prequel, but he is heavily speculated to be playing a character named Harrold Westerling, the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard.
So far, HBO have neither confirmed nor denied McTavish’s involvement in the upcoming series.
However, the actor himself opened up about his casting in a recent interview promoting his and Outlander co-star Sam Heughan’s roadtrip series, Men In Kilts.
When asked about the series, McTavish confirmed: “I’m enjoying that, yes.”
Filming has just begun in Cornwall, and HBO have since released the first images of the new cast, including Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke.
Game of Thrones fans then spotted an unofficial set pic of McTavish, with the actor recently confirming he was in Cornwall for a previously unspecified project.
He has now revealed: “I’m really having a lot of fun. We’ve just started. It’s a very big project, so we’re getting to know each other.
“They’re lovely people. It’s great, but I can’t tell you too much. I can’t tell you really anything about the story! But it involves a lot of dragons.”
McTavish was naturally tight-lipped about the new project, which will serve as a prequel to Game of Thrones’ powerful Targaryen family.

His Outlander co-star Sam Heughan was also present for the interview, and jokingly asked if he had landed a role in the new series.
“So far, no,” McTavish replied, though it appears this wasn’t from lack of trying.
He continued: “And I have been waiting. … I have to say ‘Where is Sam?’ because it’s always in my contract now.”
While Heughan’s comment wasn’t meant to be taken seriously, Outlander’s leading man actually has a long and painful history with HBO’s fantasy phenomenon.
In an interview with Vulture, the star recalled: “I auditioned for Game of Thrones seven times! Loads of times.
“I auditioned for Renly, Loras, some of the members of the Night’s Watch. And I’d always get so close! I’d be like, ‘Guys, just give me a sword!’ Everyone was going in for those parts.”
House of the Dragon is all but guaranteed to be another major hit for HBO, so there’s still a chance for Sam Heughan to make his Westeros debut in a future instalment of the new prequel.
Outlander is available to watch on STARZ and Amazon Prime. Game of Thrones is available to stream on NOW.
