“WandaVision’s” Elizabeth Olsen has shut down a rumor that there are plans to appear in “House of the Dragon.”
Olsen expressed speculation that she and Henry Cavill will appear in the second season of the hit HBO series during her appearance at Variety’s Power of Women gala last week.
He told Entertainment Tonight that he would be happy to land a role on the show, but was surprised by the rumors.
“I don’t know how things start, like rumors like this, and then people think they’re legit,” Olsen said. “Dream casting is fun, yes, but I heard it was announced, which is weirder.”
Olsen said at the time that she had not discussed appearing on the show. “I’ve never heard of anything like that,” he said.
In the past, Olsen has auditioned for the original series “Game of Thrones”.
In 2019, she told Vulture that she had auditioned for the role of Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke, but the audition went so poorly that she didn’t get a call.
“It was the most awkward audition I’ve ever had,” Olsen said. “They didn’t know if they wanted a British accent or not. So you did both. It was terrible. Every time someone says, ‘Bad audition story,’ I remember that.”
During another interview on “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” Olsen added, “It was horrible. I just think that’s uncomfortable for me, I’m sure it’s uncomfortable for her, because nobody’s going to enjoy this experience.”
This audition was early in Olsen’s career, but she has since become a rising star after appearing in several Marvel projects.
Earlier this year, Olsen told The New York Times that she began to feel “frustrated” about having to give up roles to appear in Marvel films.
“It took me away from being physically able to do certain jobs that I thought were more aligned with the things I enjoyed as an audience member, and that’s me being the most honest,” the 33-year-old actor said. “I had this confidence to work, but I was losing these pieces that I felt were more a part of me. And the more I got away from it, the less I thought about it.”
