Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon lived up to the hype, which was around ever since the series was announced after the original show’s wrap-up. The prequel has been loved by fans and critics alike, and it can be seen in the frequent wins and nominations that we have witnessed in the award season so far. House of The Dragon won the award for best drama series at The Golden Globes 2023, and the show’s two leads, Olivia Cooke (Alicent) and Emma D’Arcy (Rhaenyra) played a big part in that.

It has often been mentioned how there’s an element of queerness between the two characters. In a recent interview, producer Sara Hess told Variety, “There’s an element of queerness to it. Whether you see it that way or as just the unbelievably passionate friendships that women have with each other at that age. I think understanding that element of it sort of informs the entire rest of their relationship… Even though they’re driven apart by all these societal, systemic elements and pressures and happenings, at the core of it, they knew each other as children, and they loved each other and that doesn’t go away.”

“Olivia has told me she believes — and this is her headcanon — that they at some point kissed or made out or had some kind of physical interaction that Alicent’s mother found out about and forbade. And that was Olivia’s head story, ‘Oh, I can’t do that. That’s not right.’ And that’s the background for her in their relationship going forward. I would be 100% down with that.”
