  • He will play King Viserys Targaryen, chosen by the lords of Westeros to succeed the Old King, Jaehaerys Targaryen, at the Great Council at Harrenhal. A warm, kind and decent man, Viserys only wishes to carry forward his grandfather's legacy. But good men do not necessarily make for great kings.
  • Chloë Grace Moretz will star in the upcoming drama created by Scott B. Smith. Her film credits include starring roles in The Miseducation of Cameron Post, The 5th Wave, Greta, The Addams Family and Shadow in the Cloud.
  • She will play Flynne Fisher, a woman trying to hold together the pieces of her broken family in a forgotten corner of tomorrow's America. She is smart, ambitious and doomed. She has no future - until the future comes calling for her.
