Instead of showcasing various families and lands, the spin-off will focus solely on the Targaryen family.

Speaking exclusively to the Daily Star at the London premiere on Monday (August 15), Tom, who will play Aegon Targaryen, revealed a little about his character and what fans should expect to see.

Talking about his new role, Tom said: "It's been nerve-racking but I'm just trying to soak it in and enjoy it.

"Aegon brings a danger to Westeros and there is a certain amount of twists and turns which make him somebody to be quite wary of… but I'm shutting up now."

He also explained: "The original series was so fantastic that we're standing on the shoulders of giants, so we're wanting to bring the same amount of angst and danger to the show as they did.

"It's about humanity and you see the flaw of man and all that sort of stuff, it's exciting."

But has there been any injuries or stunts go wrong in the HBO studio?

Tom answered: "Yeah, there was a bit of a scrap with – in character – with Ewan Mitchell, who plays my brother.

"That got a bit hairy and I have a bit of a dodgy shoulder so my shoulder popped out. But that's a daily routine for me."

The actor also slammed the idea that the new spin-off show is steamier than Game of Thrones.

When asked if it had more sex scenes than the original show, Tom answered: "No, I wouldn't say so and I think it's a good thing. There was a lot of backlash last time about how exposed people felt.

"There are bits where it's like, wow, ok, but it's all in the story and it's all necessary and there's nothing superfluous."

Showrunner Miguel Sapochnik also discussed the sexiness of the show.

Miguel said: "We didn't sit down and say, 'how many sex scenes can we fit into it?' That's not how we did it. I hope that any scenes that have sex in them are relevant to the story."
