Elizabeth Olsen 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 on the show, another amazing actress, Elizabeth Olsen, had also auditioned to play the part of Daenerys Targaryen, 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.”
