Emily Carey answers House of The Dragon questions on live Instagram Q&A session


Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon has caused quite a stir on the internet, especially after the first teaser trailer was released recently. There’s no denying it, the upcoming spin-off is the talk of the town. There are murmurs and whispers as HBO has been tight-lipped about a lot of stuff related to the show, but that doesn’t stop curious fans from taking a peek at the filming sites and forming their own theories about the leaks. Game of Thrones fans recently had a great opportunity, when House of The Dragon star Emily Carey, who is playing a younger version of Queen Alicent Hightower on the show, went live on Instagram. And she was more than happy to answer her excited followers, while still keeping the discussion spoiler-free.

Carey was live on her official Instagram recently, and the fans flocked to her feed loaded with House of The Dragon questions. She seemed really excited about the show and tried to answer as much as she could, without revealing any secrets about the prequel. Though we don’t have the full live recording here, we do have some of the questions that were asked during the session via SuccubusFlynn’s Reddit feed.

Q: How would you describe HOTD’s first season in three words?

A: Intense, fiery, exciting.

Q: Have you read F&B?

A: Yes! It is also signed by GRRM himself.

Q: Do you think seeing younger Alicent in HOTD will make her more sympathetic to the audience?

A: Yes!

Q: Did you have any lines that you consider iconic?

A: “Iconic” is a big word, but I had some amazing lines!

She mentioned Milly Alcock and Olivia Cooke and how cool she thinks they are. She also said that she has watched many videos of TheDragonDemands and said he got some analyses right. Carey prefers HOTD over GOT, but possibly due to her role in it. She is also, obviously #teamGreens!

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is fast on track for its release in 2022. The production hit a little snag recently after a positive COVID-19 case was detected, but since then it has been back to normal. Fans are highly excited about the upcoming series but they do have concerns if it will be as good as the original series, especially after the controversial final season. Actor Matt Smith, who is set to play the Rogue Prince Daemon Targaryen in the prequel show, thinks it won’t be possible for House of The Dragon to reach the same heights of popularity and fame as Game of Thrones, as the latter was one of a kind and a decade-defining phenomenon.


During an interview with CNET promoting his new film Last Night in Soho, Smith talked about the aspect of the show they always have to keep in mind, that is, the comparison with its predecessor, Game of Thrones. He said:

“I suppose that paint is your sort of attitude you bring in and see what sticks. We’re trying to make a show that’s entertaining on lots of different levels and has a similar scope and ambition to the previous show, in many respects. But obviously, you’re never going to be able to re-create the success of Game of Thrones, because that was a very particular point in time. It was its own unique entity.

Game of Thrones had an ensemble of the most amazing cast. You can find them frequently venturing in other famous franchises, some even joined big production houses such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel’s Eternals is out now, starring Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington and Richard Madden. Their co-star Emilia Clarke is soon to follow them. Other than that, another Game of Thrones alum is set to join a famous fictional universe. Jacob Anderson, popular for playing Grey Worm on the show, will be joining the ever sprawling cast of Doctor Who.

Anderson talked to Entertainment Weekly recently, and explained how his Game of Thrones gig prepared him for Doctor Who. He said:


It probably did prepare me a lot just in terms of the things that become normal. People will always be like, well, Game of Thrones is tens of millions of dollars, whatever, per episode. But there were days on Game of Thrones when one of the assistant directors was dressed up like in a green suit trotting around pretending to be a horse. [Laughs] It’s really hard to take it seriously. That thing with the green suit, I think he had to stop doing it, because me and Nathalie Emmanuel and Emilia (Clarke) were [cracking up]. So I think I was prepared in that way.”

Anderson will also be playing a major role in AMC’s Interview With the Vampire. Are you excited about the new season of Doctor Who? Tell us in the comments below!


Game of Thrones and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, both share a few similarities, such as the profound secrecy involved in their filming, as well as sharing a number of stars such as Kit Harington, Richard Madden, and Emilia Clarke (very soon). Harington benefitted a lot from his time on Game of Thrones, the pressure, the long shooting hours and the secrecy, all too familiar for the ‘Jon Snow‘ fame.

Harington, in a recent interview with, Insider, said that the acclaimed HBO fantasy series ultimately helped prepare him for his newest role in the MCU. He explained, “I think I learned along the way with ‘Thrones.’ ‘Thrones’ became big as I was in it.”

“I learned along the way how to keep secrets,” Harington added. “Whereas with Marvel, I’m just entering this universe and being told there’s things I can or can’t say. So, I’m learning as I go here.”

Harington told Insider he never auditioned to play one of the super-powered beings. Whitman was a role that producer Nate Moore came to him about and that he later discussed with director Chloé Zhao. Harington was added quite late to Eternals.

I didn’t audition or otherwise for anyone else in this movie,” Harington said. “I didn’t audition for Dane. They just came to me with Dane and said, ‘Is this something you’d be interested in?’”
