Elizabeth Olsen Recalls Her ‘Terrible’ Audition for Role of Daenerys in ‘Game of Thrones’

The Wrap Saturday, 18 May 2019
Elizabeth Olsen Recalls Her ‘Terrible’ Audition for Role of Daenerys in ‘Game of Thrones’Elizabeth Olsen is now Scarlet Witch in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and she almost could’ve been Queen Daenerys Targaryen in “Game of Thrones!”

The actress told Vulture that she once auditioned for the role of Khaleesi aka the Mother of Dragons — using two different accents.

“When I first started working, I just auditioned for everything, because I like auditioning. And I auditioned for Khaleesi. I forgot that,” she said. “It was the most awkward audition I’d ever had.”

Olsen explained that she auditioned with the monologue from the end of the first season: “[From] after she just burned. And she’s making this speech to thousands of people about how she’s their queen. They didn’t know if they wanted a British accent or not. So, you did it in both. It was terrible. Anytime someone says, ‘Bad audition story.’ That’s one I remember.”

And yes, she is as deep into the world of Westeros as we are.

“I’m just so deep in ‘Game of Thrones’ that all I can think about is Kit Harington,” she said of the Jon Snow actor. “I mean, he’s just brainwashed me.”

Olsen most recently starred in “Wind River,” “Ingrid Goes West,” “Kodachrome” and of course, “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.” She will next star in her own MCU-spinoff TV series called “WandaVision,” which will probably debut on Disney’s streaming platform Disney+ in 2020 at the earliest.
