house of the dragon Fans insist that her love for the show’s resident bad boy, Prince Daemon Targaryen, has nothing to do with his handsome appeal.

Redditor Careful_Hearing6304 issued a challenge to fans of The Rogue Prince by posting the question, “You are all rooting for Daemon Targaryen because the actor is really hot. Change your mind.

The post sparked vehement discussions on the r/House of the Dragon subreddit, as fans were quick to defend their affections for the lovable scoundrel.

Redditor rou_te reminded the OP that Matt Smith, the actor who plays Prince Daemon, was heavily criticized for his appearance before the show aired and won over fans based on the strength of his performance.

Another fan explained that they are more intrigued by Prince Daemon than in love with him. From his point of view, it all comes down to Smith’s uncanny ability to captivate audiences, pointing to the actor’s previous performances as the Eleventh Doctor in doctor who and another blond royal, the late Prince Philip in The crown.

Crimsonpaths doesn’t think Daemon’s popularity is a complicated matter. In his opinion, people love the energetic Targaryen prince simply because of his toxicity:

Another Redditor turned the issue on its head, asking, “For those who think Daemon shouldn’t get the love he gets from fans, why are you upset about it?

Nobody confessed to being a hater in the thread. However, champagne_rain admitted that Daemon’s fandom is only problematic when people’s affection for the character overrides his judgment and leads them to try to justify his many transgressions, such as the cruel way he murdered the his wife.

It’s arguable that Prince Daemon’s effect on fans is no different than his influence on his niece, Rhaenrya. To understand it is to let go of inhibitions and experience a deliciously forbidden freedom that leaves fans wondering how something so bad can feel so good.
