Milly Alcock and Emily Carey hope they can return to ‘House of the Dragon’

Dragon House will soon be changing cast, with Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke taking over the roles of Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Alicent Hightower from Milly Alcock and Emily Carey.

Alcock and Carey portray the characters during their teenage years while their co-stars portray them as adults.

The young actors spoke to Pleasemynews of their desire to resume their roles in game of thrones prequel again, if the story requires it.

Dragon House follows Alcock and Carey’s iteration of Rhaenyra and Alicent until the middle of the series, at which point the series will have a fitting time jump to explain D’Arcy and Cooke reprising the roles.

Alcock admitted she would “love” to reprise the role in the future, as in a flashback, but didn’t want to distract viewers from D’Arcy’s performance.

“I love Rhaenyra and I love the cast and I love the way they told this story, so, you know, if they had me, I’d love to come back,” Alcock said. “But I know Emma is going to continue Rhaenyra’s journey for the next season or whatever.

“So I don’t really want to take away from this performance or anything, you know what I mean? I have to give it up somehow.”

Carey, meanwhile, shared how much the role of Alicent meant to her, and when asked if he might return in the future, the actor said, “I mean, sure. It’s such a cool show to be on, even if I was just in a scene, even if I was in an episode.

“But I have such a strong connection to this character and it’s weird to leave her story halfway and let someone else take over. As much as I love Olivia – I can’t wait to see what she will do with it – it was strange, you know, what he had to do.

“So if I ever had the opportunity to be able to revisit Alicent, I guess depending on where I’m at and what I’m doing, I’d love to, but who knows what’s going to happen in Season 2.

“I’m just excited to sit down after episode five airs and really enjoy the show from the audience’s perspective and get it all figured out, and not cringe at myself. Hopefully so that will also continue for season 2.”

House of the Dragon airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on HBO and HBO Max.
