Who Will Be House Of The Dragon’s Littlefinger?

Right off the bat, some might argue that Rhaenys isn’t the only Littlefinger-esque character in this new series — most people would probably peg Otto Hightower (Rhys Ifans), Hand of the King to Paddy Considine’s King Viserys I, as the conniving player who best mimics Petyr. However, those fans would be wrong, because Otto isn’t Littlefinger; he’s Tywin Lannister.

Originally — and brilliantly — played by Charles Dance in the original series, Tywin is two things above all else: a twisted family man and a master manipulator. However, Tywin is not only a more successful player than Littlefinger (generally), but he’s much more obvious about it; while Littlefinger is constantly lurking in the background waiting to strike, Tywin makes it no secret that he’s hungry for power. His thirst for that power, though, is also calculated, in that Tywin knows that the Iron Throne isn’t the real seat of power, while Littlefinger does believe that it is. Otto doesn’t seem to want to be king himself, but by offering his daughter to Viserys to align their families — just as Tywin once did with his own daughter — he makes a play to remain one of the most powerful men behind the scenes, like Tywin always was. (Also, on a surface level, Otto and Tywin have both served as Hand). Otto might seem like a Littlefinger, but he’s undoubtedly this generation’s Tywin.
