In a video for HBO Max, “House of the Dragon” star Steve Toussaint, alongside his co-star Eve Best (who plays Viserys’ cousin, Princess Rhaenys Targaryen), ask each other “get to know me” questions. During the discussion, Best, reading from a card, asks Toussaint to name his favorite “Game of Thrones” moment or battle.
An answer came to Toussaint immediately. The actor responded, “Oh, easy. Battle of the Bastards.” For those who need a refresher, Season 6 Episode 9, “Battle of the Bastards,” saw Jon Snow battling it out against Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon), the vile husband of Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), for control of Winterfell.
Toussaint went on to explain why he liked that moment so much. He said, “And not just because [‘House of the Dragon’ showrunner] Miguel [Sapochnik] directed it, but I watched it, and I was like, ‘Oh my god, that is awesome, it’s actually like being in a battle except I’d never been in a battle so I wouldn’t have the faintest idea.'”
