House of the Dragon star exposes deleted scene which sparked iconic wedding brawl

“When we shot it, there was a scene I don’t think made the edit,” Nate has now revealed.

“But, me and Solly, who plays Joffrey, we were standing outside and I think Daemon (Matt Smith) is saying to Rhaenyra, ‘Laenor fancies boys, he’s in love with Joffrey’.”

Tensions were already running high within the Targaryen clan as Laenor and Joffrey’s secret affair threatened to be exposed to the whole court.

Thankfully, Laenor eventually made it out alive with a new lover, Qarl Correy (Arty Froushan), but not until Joffrey had been beaten to a pulp.
