Who is Jason Lannister in House of the Dragon? Meet Actor Jefferson Hall
HBO’s House of the Dragon introduced us to several big houses, including House Targaryen, House Velaryon, and House Hightower. As the third episode of the TV show introduced us to Jason Lannister from House Lannister, fans want to know more about him and Jefferson Hall, who has played the role of the character.
Apart from this, we discuss how Jason Lannister and his twin brother from House of the Dragon are related to Lannisters from Game of Thrones.
Who is Jason Lannister?
During the reign of King Viserys Targaryen, Jason Lannister was the Lord of Casterly Rock and head of House Lannister. On the other hand, his younger twin brother Tyland Lannister served as a member of the Small Council of King Viserys. The twin brothers are the ancestor of GOT’s Lord Tywin Lannister and his family.
On the TV show, Jason came into the spotlight when he found princess Rhaneyra alone and approached her for marriage. However, his marriage proposal wasn’t fruitful as the princess rejected it. After that, Jason also visits the king himself with the proposal as he doesn’t take Rhanerya’s decision seriously. The king doesn’t force his daughter as his new wife Alicent convinced him to let Rhaenyra choose a worthy husband for herself.
Taking the rejection as a humiliation, Jason stood against Rhaenyra’s claim for the Iron Throne, supporting the Greens in the Dance of Dragons.
