Is Elizabeth Olsen headed for Westeros? The actress is talking about casting rumors and fan theories that she might join HBO’s House of the Dragon.
The WandaVision star walked the red carpet at Variety’s Power of Women gala in Los Angeles on Wednesday. She spoke with ET’s Deidre Behar about the recent rumors that she’s been cast in a role in the Game of Thrones prequel series.
Olsen said with a laugh, “I don’t know how things like rumors get started and then people think they’re true.”
Olsen has said that she tried out for the role of Khaleesi years ago, but Emilia Clarke ended up getting it. She also said that she had no idea how rumors started that she was involved with House of the Dragon.
“Dream casting is fun, but I heard it was, like, announced, which is weirder,” Olsen said, explaining that several people had told her that the casting rumors had been reported as fact. When she heard the truth, the actress said, “I’d never heard of that.”
Still, Elizabeth Olsen would be happy to be involved if something came up.
“I mean, okay, sure. I’d like to do anything that’s interesting, has a good story, is new, and has great characters.”
Olsen also said that she would love to play the Scarlet Witch in the future or maybe be in another season of WandaVision.
“We just had so much fun making that show,” she said. “It was a very special time, so we’d love to have everyone back.”
Olsen will next be seen on screen in the 2023 premiere of Love and Death, an HBOMax true crime miniseries.
