OLIVIA COOKE

Following House of the Dragon’s much-anticipated release, the actor tells us about becoming Alicent Hightower, embracing challenging plot lines and finally finding self-acceptance.

“The biggest lesson I learned from the show was stamina. Jesus. It’s a riot but it’s an absolute slog too. You really have to be mentally and physically prepared for just how gruelling the schedule is. Shooting a 10-page scene for two weeks is a test. At the start of the job, you’re eating fruits and nuts but three months down the line that has all been derailed and you’re stuffing two Double Deckers a day into your gob.”

Following House of the Dragon’s much-anticipated release, Olivia Cooke covers our Autumn/Fall 2022 issue and tells Scarlett Baker about becoming Alicent Hightower, embracing challenging plot lines and finally finding self-acceptance.
