Steve Toussaint is an English actor who has been in many films and television shows. He is known for his roles in The Bill, EastEnders, and Silent Witness. He has also been in films such as Mission: Impossible II and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Steve Toussaint will be playing the role of Lord Corlys Velaryon in the upcoming HBO series, House of the Dragon. Known as the Sea Snake, he is the lord of House Velaryon and the most famous seafarer in Westerosi history. It is rumored that he used to trade with Valyria before it was destroyed. Some say that one day he will sail west to find it again.
Today we’re featuring some incredible concept art from the upcoming series House of the Dragon. The show will tell the story of House Targaryen, and one of the key characters is Lord Corlys Velaryon, also known as the Sea Snake. He’s played by Steve Toussaint, and he’s one of the most famous seafarers in Westerosi history. The concept art shows him in all his glory, commanding a ship and looking every inch the lord that he is.
His clothes are reminiscent of Westeros nobility but they look just as at home on the deck of a boat. His hair is carefully styled and his beard is well groomed, much like other lords in Westeros who wear their hair long and style it into points or spikes with wax or grease to emphasize their station. In this case though it’s not just for vanity sake; sea air can be unkind to skin so wearing clothes that protect your skin helps maintain health at sea.
A close look at his costume
The costume designer for House of the Dragon, Emma Portner, gave a close look at the costume for Steve Toussaint’s character, Lord Corlys Velaryon. The most notable thing about the costume is the cloak, which is made to look like scales. The costume also includes a tunic, trousers, and boots made of soft leather. There are various pouches attached to the belt and he wears fingerless gloves with silver rings on his fingers. He also has a trident that looks like it could be used in battle (though we don’t know if it is).
Final thoughts and analysis
It’s always exciting to see a new actor join the cast of a show that you’re a fan of, and even more so when that show is based on one of your favorite book series. Steve Toussaint looks like he’ll be a great addition to the cast of House of the Dragon, and I can’t wait to see him in action. Based on his resume, it looks like he has the acting chops to pull off the role of Lord Corlys Velaryon. He also has some experience with voice work, which should make playing a character who spends most of his time at sea much easier for him. My only concern is that he might not be tall enough to play such an important lord- Paramount needs all the height they can get!

Where is House Velaryon in got?
House Velaryon is one of the Great Houses of Westeros and is located in the Crownlands. The head of the house is Corlys Velaryon, also known as the Sea Snake, who is the most famous seafarer in Westerosi history. The house’s sigil is a silver seahorse on a field of blue. The house words are We Are Strong. They have been associated with fishing and trade, both of which their lords at one time owned profitable seats on the Board of Governors for the Iron Bank of Braavos. Their seat is Driftmark, an island in Blackwater Bay, which has been contested by their rivals from House Baratheon to the north. They have also traditionally vied with other houses for control over Dragonstone, once an ancient seat of theirs and now held by Stannis Baratheon after he seized it from King Robert in Rebellion (2011).
