Emma D’Arcy, who plays Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in House of the Dragon, recently revealed that they weren’t a fan of Game of Thrones before cracking a role in its spin-off series.
"I hadn’t seen it before I auditioned, which I honestly think is the only reason I’m able to do the job. There’s no way I’d have made it through the audition process if, at that time, I had the love for the show that I have now. I think I’d have buckled under the pressure."
“I’ve read the book that relates to the work we’re making, Fire & Blood. Not least because it’s very exciting to read ahead and get spoilers on your own story. Highly recommend that.”
