House of the Dragon’s Unexpected Connection to 90s Britrock

What you didn’t know about ‘House of the Dragon’ and Blur

We’re not talking about two random things. This is a strange relationship between the spin-off of Game of Thrones and Blur. The series, which aired on HBO, and the British rock band, made up of Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James, and Dave Rowntree.

Let’s start with a small detail within the show’s universe. In “House of the Dragon,” there is a Black Council made up of lords and knights supporting Rhaenyra Targaryen’s claim to the Iron Throne. While many heavy-hitting characters are part of this council, one name often goes unnoticed: Maester Gerardys.

As it turns out, Phil Daniels, an English actor with a strong history in film and TV, played the role of Maester Gerardys. Now, what’s interesting here is that Daniels is an important figure in the history of Blur.

Back in the mid-1990s, Blur chose Daniels to feature on their third album “Parklife,” along with contributing to its iconic music video and live performances. Not only this, but the actor also participated in a hidden track, “Me, White Noise,” on their album “Think Tank,” released in 2003. He has worked alongside Blur’s iconic frontman Damon Albarn on stage, making Phil Daniels an essential part of both the TV series and the influential British band.
