Is Lady Gaga Part of the Cast of HBO’s ‘House of the Dragon’?
The short answer to the question is: no. However, while it would have been exciting to see Lady Gaga join the cast of HBO’s upcoming prequel series House of the Dragon, sadly we will have to wait for a different project pairing to get that dream collaboration.
