Who Plays
Corlys Velaryon
On House Of
The Dragon?
Princess Rhaenys is married to Lord Corlys Velaryon of House Velaryon, known for their prowess on the sea. If you've been keeping an eye on "House of the Dragon" and are wondering why Lord Corlys looks familiar, here's the answer as to who plays him.
Corlys Velaryon is portrayed by Steve Toussaint, an actor that has had a long career in television and film. Those familiar with British television, in particular, will recognize him from "Skins," as well as "Doctor Who."
American viewers may recognize him for a multi-episode arc on "CSI: Miami” or from "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time," a film adapted from the video game starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, and Ben Kingsley. As a lavish period piece, the film was no doubt a solid precursor to "House of the Dragon" which is likely one of the reasons Toussaint feels right at home in those detailed costumes.
