The prequel to the popular HBO series started filming in April and is set to hits screens in 2022.

Shooting scenes on a muddy beach in Devon this week, cast can be seen tied up to pillars while the tide is out, with some of the extras looking a tad more worse for wear than others.

Gory sights include a person lying with their arms wrapped around a wooden block while their back sports a festering open wound.

While in another shot, the make-up department get to work touching up the deathly look of actor Daniel Scott-Smith in between takes.

The prequel series takes place 300 years before the events of the Games of Thrones.

The story goes back to the Targaryen empire, as chronicled in George R. R. Martin’s Fire and Blood book.

It will focus on a historical event in Westeros known as the Dance of the Dragons.

It is considered a civil war that took place between siblings Aegon II and Rhaenyra over the throne after the death of their father Viserys I.

The war reportedly placed every major family against each other, including the Starks and Lannisters.

Official pictures released of some of the cast members, including The Crown’s Matt Smith and Truth Seekers star Emma D’Arcy, were released in May.

Matt, 38, plays Prince Daemon Targaryen, King Viserys Targaryen’s younger brother, meanwhile Emma, 28, will play Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, the King’s daughter.

Another shot showed Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower, the Hand of the King and close counsellor of King Viserys, alongside Olivia Cooke who plays Otto’s daughter, Alicent Hightower.
