Game of Thrones prequel star Naomi Ackie is disappointed that HBO canceled the series after its pilot wasn’t well received.
In an interview with Metro UK that came a day after the Game of Thrones prequel was canceled over at HBO, Naomi Ackie expressed disappointment that the show wouldn’t come to fruition and get a series order. Fans were also disappointed that the Game of Thrones series staring Naomi Ackie and Naomi Watts was canceled by HBO.
In the interview, Naomi Ackie discussed how it was not ideal that the Game of Thrones prequel was canceled but that she’s still excited for all the industry has to offer her.
“It’s an industry in which things happen, things get put down, I’m just really excited about what is out there for me now. That was a great project, it didn’t work out. I’m ready to look for more stuff. This industry will throw you about left, right and centre so you’ve got to take it in your stride!”
Naomi Ackie has nothing to worry about as she’ll next be seen in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker as a mysterious character named Jannah. This particular Game of Thrones prequel series may have been canceled but there’s still one happening with George R.R Martin directly involved titled House of the Dragon. Details on Naomi Ackie’s Game of Thrones prequel series were slim to none, with the only piece of information being confirmed was that it was set 10,000 years prior to the original show.
