Elizabeth Olsen recalls her Game of Thrones audition story



The actress broke big in the Marvel franchise with Scarlet Witch.
She auditioned to play Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones.
She auditioned with a monologue from the end of season 1, from “after she just burned.”
They didn’t know if they wanted a British accent or not. So, she did it in both.
It was terrible. It was the most awkward audition She’d ever had.

Tamzin Merchant was originally cast in the role of Daenerys for the infamous pilot.
She dropped off and was later replaced with Emilia Clarke.
