In addition, HBO is also looking to cast Olsen in House of the Dragon. HBO already green lit House of the Dragon‘s second season after less than a month ago. Furthermore, the first episode pulled in an astounding 10 million households. Therefore, House of the Dragon delivered the biggest premiere in HBO’s history.

Despite its underwhelming conclusion, Game of Thrones is one of greatest TV shows of all time.

So, a prequel was guaranteed to be a success. The show already boasts an impressive cast so adding Olsen to the mix would be a cherry on top. According to Giant Freakin’ Robot, their sources revealed they’re targeting Olsen.

In their original report, they said:

After all, the Scarlet Witch seemed to have met her demise at the end of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Nonetheless, Olsen will return to the MCU. Before she was the Scarlet Witch, Olsen actually auditioned to play Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones.

It didn’t go to plan according to the actress. Looking back on her audition she said:

I was doing the Khaleesi speech when she comes out of the fire…I didn’t get a callback.

Eventually the role would go to Emilia Clarke. It now appears she’s got a second shot of being part of the Game of Thrones universe.

Hopefully, this time it’ll happen.
