House of the Dragon has never had a shortage of good-looking characters. In a world of royalty, there are sure to be many “crushable” players that fans can easily get captivated with. Check out the supporting characters who made our list by streaming House of the Dragon on HBO Go with PLDT Home.

Check out this list of HOTD hotties!

Ser Criston Cole

Ser Criston Cole (Fabien Frankel) stuck out like a sore thumb among the sea of old, big-bellied knights vying for the empty slot in Viserys I’s Kings Guard. His coy but protective aura is reminiscent of Jon Snow of Game of Thrones fame. However, the tides quickly turned when Rhaenyra Targaryen rejected his proposal to elope, revealing his true colors. Just remember, though, Fabien is hot, but Criston is not.


Lady Laena Velaryon

To be clear, we’re talking about the adult Laena and not the 12-year-old that Lord Corlys tried to marry off to the 30-year-old Viserys I (YIKES). Anyway, no other female character in the show glowed up better than Lady Laena Velaryon (Nanna Blondell). Beautiful, smart, and strong, her charms rival even that of Rhaenyra’s, especially considering she managed to tame a dragon despite not being a Targaryen. She also made fanboys fall in love when she shouted ‘Dracarys.’ So we can understand why Daemon temporarily forgot about Rhaenyra and Mysaria upon seeing Lady Laena. Such as shame we only got to see her in one episode.


Lord Laenor Velaryon

It only makes sense that Lord Laenor Velaryon (John MacMillan) is good-looking, given how pretty his sister Laena is. The heir of Driftmark and husband of Rhaenyra, Laenor is a thrill-seeking swordsman whose combat skills are renowned throughout Westeros. However, Laenor shares a love-less and purely political marriage with Rhaenyra–despite this, he never mistreated Rhaenyra and has always taken her side.


Ser Harwin Strong

Rhaenyra made peace with the fact that she was not the object of her husband’s affection. Instead, she found ‘love’ in Ser Harwin Strong (Ryan Corr), a formidable fighter and trustworthy protector with ruggedly handsome looks. He is exactly the type that Rhaenyra needs whenever she feels alone. He also stood as a father figure for Rhaenyra’s children. Talk about a real knight in shining armor!

Laena may have the best glow-up, but the pageant-worthy looks of Mysaria (Sonoya Mizuno) can easily challenge her charms. Never mind that she is a famous prostitute in Westeros; we cannot deny the power she commands whenever she’s in a scene. At one point, Daemon’s former paramour, Mysaria, became the lady of Dragonstone after the rebellious prince took her as his bride. However, following the time jump, she has become smart and even more selfless over the years, scheming against the powerful houses to improve the lives of the poorest in King’s Landing.
