Elizabeth Olsen reveals she auditioned to play Daenerys Targaryen with two accents

Game of Thrones has had a lot of great cast members, but apparently, we might have missed out on one more. While we all absolutely adore Emilia Clarke as Daenerys on the show, another amazing actress, Elizabeth Olsen, had also auditioned to play the part, with two accents. Read on!

Olsen, who is now popular for her portrayal of Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. Scarlett Witch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe could have ended up as our Khaleesi if things had gone right. At Vulture’s Emmy studio, Olsen revealed that one of her early auditions was for Game of Thrones, for the role of Daenerys:

“When I first started working, I just auditioned for everything, because I like auditioning. And I auditioned for Khaleesi. I forgot that. It was the most awkward audition I’d ever had.”

Elizabeth revealed that she had auditioned with a monologue from the end of Season 1:

“[From] after she just burned. And she’s making this speech to thousands of people about how she’s their queen. They didn’t know if they wanted a British accent or not. So, you did it in both. It was terrible. Anytime someone says, ‘Bad audition story.’ That’s one I remember.”

That bad audition, however, didn’t stop her from becoming a fan of the show, she revealed:

“I’m just so deep in Game of Thrones that all I can think about is Kit Harington. I mean, he’s just brainwashed me.”

Well, just as much as we love Elizabeth, we cannot imagine a world where she isn’t Scarlett Witch, and Emilia isn’t the Mother of Dragons, so we’re glad it went this way. What do you think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
