Behind the scenes

On September 24, 2021, HBO announced that Gavin Spokes had signed on for House of the Dragon in the role of Lyonel Strong. The character breakdown reads as follows:

"He's Master of Laws to King Viserys and Lord of Harrenhal."
―HBO[|[src]]

In the books

Lyonel Strong was a large, balding man with a reputation as a battler. Though he was slow of speech and quiet and frequently mistaken for a brute, he was actually extremely intelligent and well-learned due his six years of study at the Citadel, from which he grew very knowledgeable of law. He was married three times and sired two daughters in addition to his sons Harwin and Larys, though Grand Maester Munkun and Septon Eustace claim that he also fathered a bastard daughter, Alys Rivers. Lyonel's third wife was already dead by the time he enters the narrative, and none of his wives were identified by name - nor was it specified if his two sons and two daughters were all born to the same wife out of the three.
