Elizabeth Olsen revealed she auditioned for the role of Daenerys on Game of Thrones




Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is one of the biggest money-making mints of the entertainment industry in present times. Being a part of such an illustrious universe is an achievement itself. Actress Elizabeth Olsen, who dons the moniker of the Scarlett Witch in the superhero universe, is one of the most famous stars in the franchise. However, there are roles that even the biggest artists yearn to play, and sadly they don’t always get it. Olsen recently revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that she once auditioned for the role of Daenerys on Game of Thrones. However, she didn’t get the part.


She explained, “I auditioned for, like, the assistant to the casting director in a small room in New York with just a camera on me and them reading the script. I was doing the Khaleesi speech when she comes out of the fire. It was awful. I didn’t get a callback.”

This wasn’t the first time Olsen commented on her botched Game of Thrones audition, either. Back in 2019, when appearing on Live with Kelly and Ryan, the WandaVision star said the experience was so bad that she wished she had stopped the audition halfway.

“I should have [stopped it]. I think I would now. I’d be, ‘I don’t think I’m going to do this any justice… hopefully, call me back at a different time for something else.”

Several other celebrities have tried out for Game of Thrones roles as well, who didn’t succeed. Would you have liked to see Elizabeth Olsen as Daenerys Targaryen? Talk to us in the comments below!


Game of Thrones ended nearly two years ago and fans miss the show dearly. Some of the actors of the show were so lovable among the general audience, they became a household name. However, we can always enjoy their amazing performances in their newer projects. Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen on the show, will be joining the ever-sprawling Marvel Cinematic Universe. Clarke has been finalised to join Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion.

During her extensive chat with the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Emilia Clarke revealed that everyone has to tape their audition for Marvel projects. She was glad she had to do it for her mysterious MCU part in the upcoming Disney+ series.


She said, “I’m never going to be the actor that goes ‘I don’t tape”. Yes. The first people I spoke to with Marvel after getting the role was their security team…I actually live in fear that something is going to happen, and I’m going to say something, and they’ll get upset. But, I play a character that I’m super into everything about it.”

Clarke adds that she hasn’t auditioned for Marvel before. She isn’t sure why it didn’t happen during the Game of Thrones years, “I don’t know that happened, I could have been up for it and nobody ever told me…No, this is my first brush [auditioning] with Marvel. I feel like there was the whole time I was with ‘Game of Thrones’; one would imagine that, this is me guessing…[Marvel Studios] didn’t want to take someone that’s in the middle of a massive franchise out of respect, or they just thought I was crap until now [laughs].”

Clarke also said she understood why fans were mad at Game of Thrones season 8 finale. Who do you think Clarke will play in Secret Invasion? Tell us in the comments below!


Game of Thrones celebrities are making headlines everywhere. It is no surprise why so many of them are involved in working with various big projects, including the likes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). It is a well-known fact that various Game of Thrones actors have appeared in MCU movies and some are going to star in upcoming Marvel projects. Kit Harington and Richard Madden will be playing brothers once again in Marvel’s Eternals. And their co-star Emilia Clarke is really excited about it. Even she, herself, is going to be a part of the MCU soon. So she asked Kit Harington about his experience.

She recently talked to Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast. Clarke revealed that she got a glowing review from Kit Harington when asked if she had spoken to him about his time on Eternals, “Yes. I haven’t spoken to him since getting [‘Secret Invasion’]. All I know is that he had a fabulous experience; I spoke to him a bunch when he was doing it and got back from it. He just loved it.”

Back when the filming on Eternals was still in the budding stages, their co-star Richard Madden, who had already joined the franchise, was really excited about Kit getting on board. He said, “It’s brilliant. It’s been about 10 years since we’ve worked together, I think. So we’ve moved on a bit onto different things, so I’m really excited to get back on set.”

It has been 2 years, and it is still the hot topic of several online debates amongst fan communities across the internet. The controversial final season of Game of Thrones. Some of the fans were so disappointed that they petitioned for a rewrite of the final season. Some actors, like Charles Dance, even agreed to sign it. Even the mother of dragons understands and agrees with the viewers. Actress Emilia Clarke, who played Daenerys Targaryen on the show, was especially sad about the downfall of her character.

Clarke told Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, “I get it. I get why people were p***ed. I totally get it. But me being the actor, you can’t do justice to the character that you’ve poured your blood, sweat and tears into for a decade without getting on the same page. Do you know what I mean? So like, I’m not going to be there being like, “Fine, I’ll do the scene, whatever. So p***ed.”

I talked to Emilia Clarke about the GAME OF THRONES finale reaction. “I get why people were pissed”. Lots in here.

Emilia explained that as an actor, regardless of where the story leads, ‘you have to turn up’.

“You have to turn up and you have to… because why? Because you’re doing it for you and you’re doing it for her and you’re doing it for the show and you’re doing it for the storytelling. So, I’m an actor. I get given a story and I need to tell that story,” she said.
