Australian actress Milly Alcock has revealed the exact moment her life changed forever when she got the call to star in the Game of Thrones prequel, House of the Dragon.
Just two years ago, the 22-year-old lived in her mother’s attic washing dishes in a restaurant to earn money, but now she’s poised to become one of TV’s biggest new stars thanks to her role in the popular fantasy franchise.
Speak with Zodiac sign magazine, the Sydney-born star revealed how she dropped out of school to take up acting and how she “froze” when her agent told her she’d landed the coveted role in House of Dragons.

Thinking back to when she found out she was going to play a young princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in the new Game Of Thrones prequel, she said, “I never thought this would happen to me.”
‘I washed the dishes in a restaurant and lived in my mother’s attic. This doesn’t happen to people like me, so it was incredibly fast,” she said of the phone call that changed her life.
“I stiffened, took a deep breath and said to my friend, ‘Do you have wine?’ Then I called my mother.’
