Milly Alcock : Playing a young Princess Rhaenrya on House of the Dragon is Alcock’s first major American role.

She found out she got the role while she was washing dishes at a restaurant in Sydney, she recounted, and quickly moved to England where the series filmed. : “It was a big change but I just told myself, ‘Okay for whatever reason they believe in me, so I have to believe in myself,'” she told Wonderland. “I tried not to let myself become consumed with all the frills and fluff of what could happen after the show because whatever I did was going to be on screens forever, so I wanted to put down the best performance I could.”

“School’s never been for me,” Alcock told The Sydney Morning Herald. “I’ve never been somebody who’s thrived in the school environment. There’s a stigmatisation of people who drop out of high school. But I couldn’t turn down Upright for a piece of paper. That just seemed ridiculous to me and infuriating.”

Milly grew up in Sydney, Australia. When she got the role of Rhaenyra, she was living with her mom. “I was washing dishes in a restaurant, living in my mum’s attic.

5. Milly is a photographer.

Milly picked up photography during lockdown. “The ability to control an image and evoke a certain feeling is what drew it to me. And not always searching for the aesthetic, but a movement and a motive of the person in front of the lens that gets you interested,” the actress told Flaunt.
