Having gelled his chocolate tresses into a sleek quiff, the former Doctor Who star shot his best power poses at photographers before putting his hands in his pockets.

Smith returned to his signature hairstyle after he shocked fans by sporting a mane of bleach blonde hair to play Prince Daemon Targaryen role in the Game of Thrones prequel series, House Of The Dragon. 

Following soon after his appearance on the red carpet was Synnove Karlsen, 25, who plays Jocasta, who demanded attention in an eye-popping pink maxi dress.

She flashed her toned pins in the thigh-slit number and elevated her height in a pair of dazzling silver heels. 

She styled her sleek brunette bob in a straight fashion and wore a dramatic palette of smokey-eyed make-up, which she paired with a dramatic black nail polish.

Strutting up the red carpet and giving cameras a fierce stare, the Scottish actress, who is known for playing Holly McStay in the BBC thriller series Clique, made sure all eyes were on her.

David Walliams, 50, and his ‘friend’ Keeley Hazell, 34, put on a tactile display – with the model lovingly placing a hand on the comedian’s shoulder, who looked debonair in a brown suit.

His companion sent temperatures soaring as she flashed her ample assets in a glossy blue maxi dress featuring a tantalizing thigh-slit.

Bridgerton heart-throb Regé-Jean Page, 31, sported a black satin shirt and black trousers for the premiere, which he paired with a stylish pair of black loafers. 

The English actor, who rose to fame last year starring in Netflix’s romance series Bridgerton, unbuttoned his silky shirt down to his chest for the red carpet appearance, showing off his silver chain accessory.

Kassius Nelson, best known for playing Jade Albright on Hollyoaks from 2015 until 2017, turned heads on the red carpet in a slinky floor-length black strapped gown, which she paired with elegant black heels.

She added a vibrant touch of colour to her attire with a bright yellow handbag slung across her shoulder and styled her shoulder-length chocolate locks in tight curls to frame her face.

Agent Rebecca Harrod put on a stylish display in a figure-hugging grey mini-dress, which she paired with a simple pair of black strapped heels. 

She effortlessly styled her brunette tresses in loose waves across her shoulders and donned a light touch of nude make-up to show off her natural good looks.

Edgar Wright, who directed the upcoming film, put on a dapper display in a stylish black striped suit, which he paired with an understated black tie. 

The screenwriter, 47, gelled his brunette mane pushed back away from his face and trimmed his short stubble into a well-groomed fashion.

The much-anticipated film was one of the projects pushed back amid the coronavirus pandemic.

With cinemas opening across the world once more, it is slated for an October 29 release.

Anya-Taylor Joy plays a seemingly-creepy showgirl from 1960s London, whom a modern-day fashion student aspires to be. 

A young fashionista – played by Thomasin McKenzie – begins to connect with Anya’s hedonistic ‘ghost’, channeling her into her work as a designer.

But the trailer – which sees a sequence of events unfold to an eerie rendition of Petula Clark’s Downtown – takes a twisted turn, as the two women’s lives appear to somehow collide, with McKenzie seemingly haunted in troubling – and violent – ways.

Things are left ambiguous, but the trailer ends with the only words spoken during it: ‘Do you believe in ghosts?’

Matt Smith, Rita Tushingham, and Terrence Stamp also star, as does Diana Rigg, who made the movie prior to passing away in autumn 2020. This was the last project she worked on prior to her death.

The official synopsis for Last Night In Soho reads: ‘Edgar Wright’s psychological thriller about a young girl, passionate in fashion design, who is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s where she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe singer.

‘But 1960s London is not what it appears, and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences…’

Edgar Wright is renowned for his 2017 film Baby Driver which became his top-grossing film to date.

It made $107 million in the US and $226 million worldwide.

Of the delays in release, Wright told IndieWire earlier this year: ‘Me and the producers were behind the push, and Universal and Focus were in agreement.

‘They feel as well that we want to at least give it the chance to be in theaters and see it as it was intended to be. Obviously people will be able to watch it at home eventually. 

I saw a headline that said, “Soho Delayed For Second Time To October,” but the more positive spin is “Soho To Be In Theaters!” That’s how I see it.

‘I’d happily wait if there’s a chance to see it on the big screen because that’s how it was made to be seen.

‘I, along with the rest of the planet, hope for the vaccine to gather momentum.’

The actor, 38, looked worlds away from his usual self as he sported a mane of bleach blonde hair for the role in the Game Of Thrones prequel series.

The actor’s character in the series is a dragonrider who posses the true blood of the dragon.

He is also the younger brother of King Viserys (Paddy Considine) and heir to the throne.

In July, production was paused after a person on set tested positive for Covid-19. It is understood that the production shut down for two days, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Alongside Matt, non-binary actor Emma D’Arcy is portraying the 28-year-old version of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen.

They join Eve Best as Rhaenys Velaryon, Fabien Frankel as Ser Criston Cole, Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower, Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower, Sonoya Mizuno as Mysaria and Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon.

The show will depict the war of succession between Daenerys Targaryen’s ancestors Rhaenyra and Aegon II, two dragon-wielding heirs to the Iron Throne, in a civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons.

The Dance of the Dragons saw Rhaenyra and her half-brother Aegon II fight over their father Viserys I’s throne in a war that lasted three years, and led to untold death and misfortune to the Targaryen line.

Casting began last year, and the prequel is due to be released in spring 2022.
