Actress Elizabeth Olsen is best known for her superhero character Wanda Maximoff a.k.a the Scarlett Witch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She has become a household name ever since, gaining immense popularity amongst MCU fans. However, there is another famous character she auditioned for, and botched it horribly. Olsen tried out for the role of Daenerys Targaryen once, and she described the experience as terrible and she wanted to quit it immediately. Since then, many fans have wondered how the MCU actress would have looked in her Game of Thrones avatar. Thanks to the ever-evolving software technology, we finally have an answer.
An incredibly realistic deepfake video from YouTube creator Stryder HD turned Olsen into the Mother of Dragons. The resemblance between Olsen and Clarke in the video is eerily uncanny, and places Olsen in several iconic Daenerys-centric scenes. Check out the video below.
As we know, Emilia Clarke eventually went on to play the iconic Dragon Queen on Game of Thrones, it is interesting to note that both Daenerys and Wanda shared a few similarities. Both the characters have been through a lot, losing a lot of loved ones in the process. And both of them retaliate, one burns a whole city down, the other kidnaps an entire town. So maybe if Olsen had a chance to play Daenerys, she might have done a great job as well.

Peter Dinklage played one of the most influential characters on Game of Thrones, Tyrion Lannister. Similar to Tyrion, Peter’s life was no bed of roses. He rose to success with years of dedicated hard work. Everyone faces a time in their life when they feel like they are at their absolute lowest. If you’re going through such an experience, the following speech is exactly what you need. Speaking at Bennington College in 2012, actor Peter Dinklage gave a rousing speech. Check it out here!
Dinklage said, “Don’t search for defining moments because they will never come. Well, the birth of your children, OK, of course, forget about it, that’s just six months. My life is forever changed, that’s the most defining moment ever. But I’m talking about the rest of your life and most importantly in your work. The moments that define you have already happened. And they will already happen again. And it passes so quickly.”
He continued, “When I went to school here, if a freshman wanted to write direct and star in her own musical, the lights would already be hung for her. Now I tell the story because the world might say you are not allowed to yet. I waited a long time out in the world before I gave myself permission to fail. Please, don’t even bother asking, don’t bother telling the world you are ready. Show it. Do it,” he said and concluded with a quote from playwright Samuel Beckett. ‘What did Beckett say? “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.”’
