House of the Dragon’s Olivia Cooke Explains Why She Rejected Alicent’s Initial Characterization

Early in production on House of the Dragon, Alicent Hightower’s Olivia Cooke was told by showrunners Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Condal to play the character as “a woman for Trump,” but she chose to play her a little differently. Now, the actor has explained why he rejected that initial characterization.

“I just didn’t want to give them any more headroom than they already had,” Cooke recently told Entertainment Weekly. (opens in a new tab), referring to the former president of the United States and his family. “So I tried to find a different route to her. I could see what they were saying with this complete indoctrination and denial of her own autonomy and rights. I just couldn’t be asked to go that route.”
