Australian actress, Milly Alcock plays the younger version of Rhaenyra onscreen in the Game of Thrones prequel, House of Dragon, but she is much older than the character.
The Game of Thrones prequel, much-anticipated by fans, will explore the trials and tribulations of the Targaryen dynasty during a civil war that took place 200 years before the events in the original HBO series.
Alcock will play young Rhaenyra Targaryen, and Emma D’Arcy will take on the role of her older self.
How old is Milly Alcock?
Milly Alcock was born on April 11, 2000. She is currently 22 years old this year, 2022. She was 21 when filming for House of the Dragon began. However, Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen is 15 years old at the start of House of the Dragon. Milly Alcock is seven years older than the character she portrays in the HBO series.
In George R. R. Martin’s book series, we see her character when she is younger. When Rhaenyra Targaryen was 8 years old, she was made her father’s heir in the books.
About Rhaenyra Targaryen
Rhaenyra is an important character in the House of The Dragon. She is the first female heir to the Iron Throne. This does not make her father, King Viserys, happy because he wanted a son.
House of the Dragon is all about succession and family politics, in the same way Game of Thrones was. However, this time we’re focused on infighting between the Targaryens.
