House of the Dragon star Olivia Cooke opens up about Miguel Sapochnik’s departure from the show




Given how well-known Game of Thrones is, there are moments when the complex machinery that keeps it operating runs into problems or has to be quickly adjusted. When co-showrunner and one of the show’s original members, Miguel Sapochnik, unexpectedly quit the prequel series House of The Dragon after it had already seen significant success, many fans were outraged. Actress Olivia Cooke (Alicent) recently discussed her feelings about his leaving.

In a recent episode of the UnWrapped podcast, Cooke discussed the renowned filmmaker’s departure from the program, saying, “We all love Miguel, he’s a brilliant director and an incredible collaborator. He had just really radical ideas when it came to making this show. And I guess there’s been this collective effort to fill his shoes with other amazing directors.”

Cooke said, “This year we have Gita Patel and Clare Kilner, I mean sure we still have issues, we can’t replace him completely because he was his own entity. But there’s still that proportion to make this season just as good, if not, better.”
