Behind the scenes

On October 5, 2021, HBO announced that Wil Johnson had signed on for House of the Dragon in the role of Vaemond Velaryon. The character breakdown reads as follows:

"Younger brother to Corlys Velaryon and commander in the Velaryon navy."
―HBO[|[src]]

In the books

In Fire & Blood, "Vaemond Velaryon" is not described as Corlys's younger brother, but the son of his unnamed younger brother. While names do repeat in dynasties, the TV version may have been condensed into simply being his younger brother instead of his nephew. There are numerous Velaryon cousins from younger branches of the family, just as in the A Song of Ice and Fire novels there were numerous minor Lannister cousins, resulting in condensations in the TV series.
