Elizabeth Olsen on House of the Dragon Rumors
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Elizabeth Olsen was asked about the rumors that she was set to star in Season 2 of HBO’s Game of Thrones prequel titled House of the Dragon.
After confirming that she auditioned for the role of Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones “way back when,” the actress was asked if she would be interested in having a role in House of the Dragon. Reports surfaced online recently that stated she had already been cast in Season 2 of the show. Olsen appeared open to the idea, but then quickly stated that she isn’t sure “how rumors like that get started:”
“Yeah, I mean, sure. But like, I don’t know how rumors like that get started and people think they’re legitimate.”
Olsen then went on to say that she heard “someone with a blue check” announced it via Twitter, which she considered to be “weirder” than if it was just a rumor:
“Dreamcasting is fun, yeah. I heard that it was, like, announced though, which is weirder. From someone with a blue check, I heard, when I did my Variety interview for tonight.”
The Marvel star was then asked if she could definitively say she wasn’t cast in House of the Dragon, and she responded by saying “I mean, I’ve never heard of such a thing.”
After being asked if she would ever possibly consider playing in the HBO series, Olsen said “sure,” as long as it would be a story that is “worth telling:”
“Sure, I mean, anything that’s worth telling, that’s a good story, that’s innovative, that’s great characters, and yeah, sure.”
