House Of The Dragon fans fear losing ‘heart and soul’ Milly Alcock in time jump

The highly-anticipated House of the Dragons premiered last night and fans are already fearing that the part will replace Millie Alcock.


Three years after the mind-blowing finale of Game of Thrones (GOT), its prequel has finally hit the screens and audiences are ready to witness the perfect mix of politics, violence and sexiness in House Targaryen.

As teased in the trailer, which has racked up nearly 20 million views in just over a month, King Viserys (Paddy Considine) faces the same dilemma that brought him to power – who should be the heir? Refusing to choose between his brother Damon (Matt Smith) and his young daughter Rhianera (Milly Alcock), it’s clear that civil war is on the horizon.

House of the Dragon (HOTD) episode 1 dropped on Sunday (August 21). Fans have already praised Hollywood newcomer Alcock as the perfect young actress to play Daenerys Targaryen’s ancestor.

Millie Alcock steals the show as the regal Rhaenyra

Set nearly 200 years before GOT in 298 AC (after the Conquest), HOTD opens in 112 AC.

At first glance, it looks like Rhaenyra is our new Daenerys. An ambitious young woman fond of riding her dragon Sirax, she rejects the typical fate of Westerosi women. She promises to create a “new world order” in the trailer when she is told that “a woman will not inherit the Iron Throne because that is the order of things,” while Daenerys declares that she will “break the wheel.”

This was confirmed in the season opener. She claims that she would rather swing a sword on the battlefield than “serve the field” by enduring childbirth.

King Viserys finally declared his daughter as heir. This prompts the realm’s lords to pledge allegiance to her as Damon flees on his dragon. This, of course, won’t be the last we see of him.

While the show features veteran actors Considine, Smith and Eve Best, Alcock has impressed fans with her menacing role.

“There’s only one thing everyone can agree on about House of the Dragon,” one fan raved. “Milly Alcock was absolutely blown away as Rhaenyra Targaryen. Like, that’s the moment of the show.”

Another similar Appreciated: “Milly Alcock was the heart and soul of that episode of House of the Dragon and it’s a shame to lose her in the time jump.”

Millie Alcock’s run as a Targaryen would be brief

Unfortunately, fans shouldn’t fall too in love with Alcock as the series will feature a time jump in the middle of the season. Showrunners Miguel Sapochnik and Ryan Condle told The Hollywood Reporter that Olivia Cooke and Emma D’Arcy are replacing Alice Hightower and Renira, marking the 10th anniversary of the show.

Emily Carey currently plays young Alicent, daughter of Sir Otto Hightower.

“That’s how you tell this story right,” Condle explained. “We are telling the story of a war in a generation. We’ve set everything up so that you’ll understand all the players when the first sword is struck.” Casting younger versions complicated an already complicated show because Condle “had to be right four times.”

After seeing the finished show, however, he believes in the structure.
