Milly Alcock Bids House Of The Dragon Goodbye

Milly Alcock finishes her act as Rhaenyra Targaryen in House of the Dragon, she bids the series goodbye as the show approaches its time jump. Upcoming instalment of the HBO original series takes place ten years after its previous episode. While many would question the decision of actor change, fans still anticipate the coming episodes earnestly.

Alcock performed extraordinarily as the Heir to the Iron Throne. A lot of critics commend her performance. Furthermore, they note that her relationships with Prince Daemon Targaryen and Queen Alicent Highwater are what carries the show. For Alcock however, the experience to be part of such an epic story is beyond words. Thus, the actress took to her instagram account to share how grateful she feels through behind the scenes photos and video.

Together with the posted photo and video she captions:

I love u all I love u I love this!

Alcock shares behind the scenes photos and a video through her account. With co-actor Emily Carey, whose Alicent Highwater will also be replaced for the rest of the season. Obviously, after seeing the post, one will naturally notice the closeness and camaraderie that the cast share. The first photo shared feature the two actresses in each other’s arms followed by Alcock shooting for the scene where she mounts Syrax. Third is a photo of Alcock in Rhaenyra’s pageboy disguise at the foot of a hidden stone stairs. Fourth, which is the only video in the post, featured her and Carey entering a small room. The set somehow shook, inadvertently leading Alcock to end up on Carey’s lap. Laughing the whole time, they re-opened the door and got out.

The last three photos featured to the “men in Rhaenyra’s life”. Fabien Frankel fast asleep in his Ser Criston Cole garb with earphones is just funny. Then, Matt Smith who portrays Daemon Targaryen appears to be in a banquet pointing at a House of the Dragon card specifying the date the series started to stream on HBO Max. The final photo is Alcock with her trusted shield Frankel in a more updated look enjoying either a candy pop or a cigarette in a pose that suspiciously looks like they are river dancing.
