1. Elliott plays Ser Erryk Cargyll in House of the Dragon.

Elliott made his first appearance as Ser Erryk Cargyll in the series premiere of House of the Dragon. Erryk was a member of King Viserys I Targaryen’s Kingsguard during his reign. After Viserys’ death and the Hightowers’ decision to crown Aegon the new king over Rhaenyra Targaryen, Erryk defected and helped Rhaenys Velaryon escape King’s Landing.

He brings Viserys’ crown with him to Dragonstone in the season finale and swears his allegiance to Rhaenyra. As we know from George R.R. Martin’s Fire & Blood, Erryk becomes Rhaenyra’s personal protector.
