The hilarious steps Emma D’Arcy went to to perfect their House of the Dragon audition

During a recent interview with Stream WarsEmma D’Arcy spoke briefly about their intense audition process for “House of the Dragon” and recalled a particularly hilarious anecdote about how they had to design their own wig in order to pass the audition. “Finally I met Ryan [Condal] and Miguel [Sapochnik] first time on a zoom call and Miguel asked me if I had a wig,” D’Arcy explained. Do it yourself, you know? And send it to HBO? Big. So ashamed.”

D’Arcy and co-star Olivia Cooke (who plays the show’s adult version of Alycent Hightower) laughed when D’Arcy described her nervousness about sending an audition tape to one of the biggest media outlets on the planet, worried that their A homemade wig could cost them the role of a lifetime. Considering the fact that D’Arcy apparently landed the role of Rainier Targaryen, it’s clear that neither Sapochnik nor Condal objected to D’Arcy’s DIY project, at least not enough to exclude them from consideration.

Either way, this hilarious story is yet another example of how passionate Emma D’Arcy is about the role, which should give fans a bit of courage about what they can give to one of the show’s most popular characters.
