House of the Dragon: Olivia Cooke Describes Her “Complex” Alicent Hightower


In a recent interview with Collider, Olivia talks about playing Alicent Hightower, drawing comparissons to Game of Thrones and its multidimensional characters. When asked about playing Queen Alicent in House of the Dragon, Olivia shared that “she’s very complex and I think people are gonna want to see the worst in her.” adding that “it will take some time” for an audience to fully understand her and her motivations.” With characters like Cersei Lannister and Olenna Tyrell, whose motivations and actions were not always aligned with morality but always managed to put on a good show, Game of Thrones fans will not be surprised by Queen Alicent’s complexity.

“What’s amazing about Game of Thrones, like we saw in the past series, is that one season, you hate a character, and the next, you absolutely love them and will go to the ends of the earth for them. You just don’t know what you’re gonna get with these characters. They’re so well-written. Such is the human condition, you can do some horrendous things, but then you can also do some wonderful things as well. It’s very complex, and it’s not black and white at all.”

When asked about fan expectations and the pressure of doing a prequel to one of the biggest television shows in history, she says “it does help that the story is of a hundred years prior. We’re in the world of Game of Thrones, but you can also put yourself in a different headspace as well and know that, for an actor, you don’t have to necessarily follow on from what anyone else is doing. But at the same time, yeah, it’s utterly bizarre, after the year or year and a half, of fucking 10 years that we’ve had, looking down and just being like, ‘What am I wearing? What am I doing? This is mad.'”
