Dragons From Game of Thrones Taking a Break From Acting

 

SAINT PETER, MN— The season premiere for the final season of Game of Thrones aired on HBO two days ago; after the show’s eight-year run time many fans are wondering what lies for the series stars after the last episode airs, and all of our favorite characters are heartlessly slaughtered to remind the viewers that death approaches us all. While pain and heartbreak lie in the fan’s future, three notable members of the cast have already begun their post-Game of Thrones lives. These three actors began their trailblazing careers in the most popular live-action fantasy adaptation since The Lord of The Rings, and they are ready to ignite the next stage of their lives. Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion, known for their roles as Daenerys Targaryen’s dragon posse will take a break from acting to pursue private interests.

Drogon announced as filming for the last season began that he planned on spending some much needed time with his partner, an accountant from Queens named Richie Johnson. The couple has kept out of the limelight for years after a heated argument on set about the goat corpses and gold littering their apartment. But, after some couple counseling sessions, the couple is happy to announce that they are pregnant. With what they are pregnant with, no one knows for sure, but their maternity specialist assures that the child will be adorable.

However, home life is not for all dragons. After many attempts at sobriety, Viserion has returned to rehab after going on a three-day bender with the voice actor that played Dragon in Shrek. He and his family ask for privacy during his recovery. Though Viserion does plan on returning to his pop-punk cover band, Rage Against the Throne, after his release.

The dragons struggle with fame has been the focus of the news for the past few years, and after attending family therapy sessions with his siblings, Rhaegal decided to dedicate his star power to shedding light on the hardships faced by child actors.

“Did you know that we weren’t even named by our real mother?” Rhaegal said in an interview with E! Magazine. “We were named on the show, and those are our names. Who are we, or any child actor, after the camera’s stop rolling? That’s what my TED Talk series will focus on.” He then went on to describe the objectification he and his fellow dragon actors receive. “I’m a person with hobbies, not just big teeth and fire. People think that being a dragon is all stealing mountain lairs and eating farm animals, but we do so much more than that. No one ever asks me about my Etsy store where I sell hand knitted horn hats.”

The finale episode of Game of Thrones will premiere on May 15th on HBO, and viewers can follow the dragons personal endeavors on their Instagram or Twitter @DanysSquad.
