House of the Dragon’s first season is presently airing, and thus far, both audiences and critics have given the series fantastic ratings. Recent rumours stated that the HBO series was interested in casting Marvel star Elizabeth Olsen for a significant role, even though the second season of the show has already been announced. Henry Cavill may have also been contacted for the second season, according to rumours.
Fans were thrilled to hear that Olsen might be cast in House of the Dragon given her outstanding performance as Wanda Maximoff in the Marvel movies and WandaVision. The actress finally responded to the persistent rumours recently while making an appearance at Variety’s Power of Women gala in Los Angeles. When asked if she had received any inquiries about appearing in Season 2 of House of the Dragon, Olsen told ET, “I don’t know how things, like rumours like that, get started, and then people think they’re legitimate.”
Olsen had previously been in a Game of Thrones audition, but Emilia Clarke ultimately won the part of Daenerys Targaryen. Although the actress addressed rumours that she had been cast in House of the Dragon and provided clarification, “Dream casting is fun, yeah, but I heard it was, like, announced though, which is weirder. I never heard of such a thing.”
Elizabeth remained upbeat when asked if she would be interested in taking on a role if the opportunity presented itself. She later added that she would be open to anything creative and compelling. Currently, Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy, Olivia Cooke, and Paddy Considine play the main characters in the first season of House of the Dragon.
