The House of the Dragon series does not shy away from showing horrible things.
On Dragon House Olivia Cooke plays Alicent Hightower, the second wife of the King of Westeros, Viserys Targaryen. Details about the character are scarce, but we know that she is fighting for power with her husband and stepdaughter Rhaenyra, who will be the heir apparent.
Rhaenyra wants the throne for herself, but Alicent seeks it for her children. It is a complex battle that will have dire consequences. According to Cooke, we will “worst” appear in your character.
“The good thing about Game of Thrones, and you’ve seen it in the previous series, is that you hate a character in one season and you love the next and you want to go all the way.” according to Cooke /
“You just don’t know what you’re going to get with these characters. They’re so well written. That’s the human condition, you can do some horrible things and then do some beautiful things. It’s very complex, certainly not black and white.”
The series can be seen on the HBO Max streaming service throughout the course of 2022.
