House of the Dragon’s Milly Alcock ‘lived in attic’ after leaving school to pursue career | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Australian actress Milly Alcock, 22, is set to become a household name thanks to her role as a young Rhaenyra Targaryen in the Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon. As the show’s highly-anticipated release is upon us, Milly opened up about how the role has changed her life.

The Sydney-born star said she “froze” when she received the call from her agent.

Securing such a big job was even more monumental because she was “living in [her] mum’s attic” and “washing dishes” at the time.

She candidly explained: “I never thought this would happen to me. I was washing dishes in a restaurant, living in my mum’s attic.  

“This doesn’t happen to people like me, so it was incredibly quick. I froze, and took a deep breath and said to my friend, ‘Do you have wine?’ Then I called my mum,” she told Stellar magazine.

Before taking on the role as dragonrider Rhaenyra, Milly made a few appearances on TV while she was growing up in Australia.

She first starred in comedy drama Wonderland in 2014 and then in Australian series Janet King three years later.

Her biggest job prior to House of the Dragon was as Meg in Upright. She played a runaway teenager who hitchhiked 2,000 miles across the Australian outback.

Her performance was well-received and she won the Casting Guild of Australia Rising Star Award in 2018.

UK fans can watch at the same time as America at 2am on Sky Atlantic or NOW.

Nevertheless, for those who don’t want to stay up, the same episode will be repeated at 9pm on Sky Atlantic on Monday.

The series will consist of 10 episodes with a new one coming out every week at the same time.
