House of the Dragon Will Continue Filming Despite Strikes

Yesterday was a big day for actors and writers, as well as anyone—like us—who covers the entertainment industry as SAG-AFTRA officially joined the WGA on the picket lines for the first time in 60 years.

We’ll be figuring out what this means for San Diego Comic-Con soon, but until then, remember spoilers… Fran Fine would never, ever cross a picket line.
