House of the Dragon star Paddy Considine unravels the full circle moment in Viserys’ deathbed vision

The actor referred to Queen Aemma’s passing as a “catalyst” for the sickening change in his character that led to his last moments on earth.

At a panel discussion at the official Game of Thrones Convention, Paddy Considine discussed one of his favorite moments from his portrayal of King Viserys I Targaryen in House of the Dragon.

Alongside co-star Steve Toussaint, actor Alfie Allen from Game of Thrones, and moderators Jason Concepcion and Greta Johnsen, Considine spoke about Viserys’ deathbed experience, in which he sees someone before he dies. The actor said that Queen Aemma (Sian Brooke), his first wife, is the one he sees and says “My love” to.

“I imagined that, because Aemma’s demise represents the spiral, he would see her as he passes away. That’s truly his demise,” Considine said to a large crowd on Saturday night at the Los Angeles Convention Center. “He never recovers from that death, which I believe was first misinterpreted by others. They believed, I believe, that I had slain my wife, but that was untrue. “They both had to pass away.”

Aemma is in labor with their baby, Baelon, in the first episode of House of the Dragon, but problems endanger their lives. The king is informed by the maester that he must decide.

“They had the chance of saving Baelon, but it meant putting her through a horrific procedure,” said Considine. “I think it was misunderstood that he killed her, but he was trying to save the child or they were both gonna die.” First to pass away from blood loss after the C-section is Aemma. Baelon passes away soon after inhaling for the first time. Considine said, “I don’t think he ever recovered from that.”

Despite her short time on set, Brooke made “such a massive impression” on Considine, the actor said. When it came to Viserys, “it just became the catalyst for his journey really,” he said. “The only person he really loved was her. Additionally, as the character in the show becomes ill, he never asks for a cure.

It’s never he who asks for assistance. It’s everyone else in the vicinity. It seems as if he is tolerating his physical mistreatment as a kind of discipline.”

Considine said that he made up the words “My love,” which he mumbles to a vision of Aemma while holding out his hand for her, during the deathbed scene. The team led by showrunners Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik preserved that moment.

“Ultimately, when he dies, I just had this idea that, before he leaves that realm, Aemma is the one that comes to meet him and he’s finally back with her,” he said. “And that concluded everything. That was an impromptu line.”
