Behind the scenes[]

Egg is codenamed "Boy" in a casting call published in October 2023. The character description reads as follows:

"Aged 9-10. Physically small, the character is wise beyond his years, confident and witty. He has a neutral English accent, and is white with blue/green eyes and pale skin. Must be under 4'6 (137cm) and at least 9 years old by March 2024 for licensing."[2]

On April 5, 2024, HBO announced that Dexter Sol Ansell had been cast in the role for the series.[3]

In the books[]

Egg is the deuteragonist of the Dunk & Egg novellas, the first of which is set just under 90 years before A Game of Thrones.

While traveling to a tournament at Ashford Meadow in 209 AC, Ser Duncan the Tall encounters Egg at an inn and later takes him on as his squire.
