Former Game Of Thrones Actor Doesn't Want Daenerys Targaryen To Take The Iron Throne

We all know that Viserys Targaryen wasn't particularly fond of his own sister. Interestingly, former Game of Thrones star Harry Lloyd also doesn't believe that Daenerys Targaryen should take the Iron Throne in Season 8. However, it's not because he wants to rule on his own.

Lloyd recently spoke to Gamespot about Game of Thrones Season 8 although the actor is actually promoting his new series Legion where he will play Professor X. When asked about who should rule Westeros, Lloyd claimed he is "not quite up to date, shamefully" on the series. Nevertheless, he pointed out that the Mother of Dragons or any other royal hopeful shouldn't take over in the final season.

"I kind of want no one on it, to be honest," Lloyd said with a grin. "I just want it to become a really nice, kind of democracy."


That's surprisingly un-Viserys of him. Although a democracy would be an interesting conclusion for Game of Thrones, Lloyd did admit he was rooting for an unexpected candidate as the Ruler of the Seven Kingdoms.

"I'll tell you what, I always wanted Hodor to be in charge," he said with a laugh. "But, yeah--maybe with some time travel?"

It's highly unlikely we'll be seeing Hodor on the Iron Throne following the character's heartbreaking demise in Season 6. In the meantime, we can expect to see a Hodor-sized battle to take place early on in Game of Thrones Season 8.

It was previously reported that HBO has confirmed that Episode 3 in the final season will be 82 minutes long. This is 22 minutes longer than originally expected. Interestingly, this could mean that the Battle of Winterfell, the episode's projected title, will feature the lengthiest battle sequence in cinematic history.

Game of Thrones Season 8 will premiere on HBO on April 14.
