Press: Elizabeth Olsen Auditioned for Daenerys Targaryen With Two Accents

VULTURE – What’s for you will not pass you, according to a lot of quote cards on Pinerest, and the role of Daenerys Targaryen was apparently not for Elizabeth Olsen. At Vulture’s Emmy studio this week, Olsen told us about one of her early auditions, which happened to be for a certain HBO fantasy about ten years ago. “When I first started working, I just auditioned for everything, because I like auditioning. And I auditioned for Khaleesi. I forgot that,” she said. “It was the most awkward audition I’d ever had.” Olsen says she auditioned with a monologue from the end of the first season: “[From] after she just burned. And she’s making this speech to thousands of people about how she’s their queen. They didn’t know if they wanted a British accent or not. So, you did it in both. It was terrible. Anytime someone says, ‘Bad audition story.’ That’s one I remember.”

Now, though, Olsen is as Thrones-obsessed as the rest of us. “I’m just so deep in Game of Thrones that all I can think about is Kit Harington,” she said. “I mean, he’s just brainwashed me.” Welcome to the club!
