According to media reports, the British actress Emily Carey, who plays Miss Alicent in ‘House of the Dragon’, was previously apprehensive about participating in the show in an interview, fearing that she would encounter grading problems.
She said she started watching ‘Game of Thrones’ seriously after she was confirmed for the role, and Season 1 scared her: “God, so many restricted scenes, I’m so nervous, what should I do when it’s my turn to shoot?”
She had just turned 18 when filming began, and had never met Targaryen I (played by Paddy Considine), with whom she was paired, and “didn’t know what this awful old man was going to do to himself,” only that the script called for her to bathe the king, and summoned her to serve in bed in the middle of the night, ” At that point I didn’t know if Paddy was a good person to be around, (bed scenes) how he was going to shoot, I just knew I was going to be acting with a 47 year old guy and I was a little worried.”
But it’s clear that HBO, known for challenging scales, is very professional in this regard. The crew appointed a bed scene coordinator, called everyone together to talk through the scale, all the details are clear, we talk face to face to eliminate all doubts and embarrassment.
Creator Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik’s open and frank talk show also made her feel more secure.
However, Emily Carey, who is said to have the highest face value in the show, will be saying goodbye to the show, and the young queen and princess will be replaced by an older version of the cast in the sixth episode.
