See Olivia Cooke Tousle Her Hair In A Low-Cut Sparkly Dress
House of the Dragon star Olivia Cooke is stunning in this sparkly dress.
Olivia Cooke has had an incredible year, and she’s keeping that streak going with this amazing photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar. Cooke shows off a variety of looks, including a sparkly gold jacket, some more casual looks, and a stunning silver dress. It seems like Cooke can light up the pages of a magazine just as well as she can light up the screen.
While Olivia Cooke has featured in a few notable roles throughout the years, she really broke out into the mainstream with her role as Queen Alicent in HBO’s House of the Dragon. The prequel to Game of Thrones adapts George R.R. Martin’s book Fire & Blood, which chronicles the downfall of House Targaryen and the civil war that caused it. The show was met with wide critical acclaim and drew in huge viewership numbers.
The first half of House of the Dragon showed us the friendship between Milly Alcock’s Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen and Emily Carey’s Alicent Hightower before it was soured by Alicent’s marriage to Rhaenyra’s father, King Viserys I (Paddy Considine). Both Alcock and Carey were praised for their performances as the younger girls before the mid-season time jump led to Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke taking over the roles of Rhaenyra and Alicent, respectively. D’Arcy and Cooke turned in incredible performances as well and will be playing the roles in future seasons of the series.
Along with Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, and Paddy Considine, House of the Dragon starred Matt Smith, Rhys Ifans, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Sonoya Mizuno, Fabien Frankel, Graham McTavish, and more. The series was created by George R. R. Martin and Ryan Condal and is already confirmed for a second season which is set to land sometime in 2024. Impressively, the series premiere was watched by over 10 million viewers on the first day, setting a record for HBO.
Although House of the Dragon wasn’t eligible for the 2022 Emmys, it will undoubtedly have plenty of nominations for the 2023 ceremony. HBO submitted Olivia Cooke to the Supporting Actress category along with Milly Alcock, Eve Best, Emily Carey, and Sonoya Mizuno. Although submitting Cooke for consideration doesn’t necessarily mean she’ll be nominated, she’s definitely a fan favorite and seems like a shoo-in for the category.
Of course, HBO submitted Olivia Cooke’s other co-stars in the Lead Actor, Lead Actress, and Supporting Actress categories. Of the names submitted, Cooke, D’Arcy, Considine, Smith, and Alcock received the lion’s share of the critical praise, so it seems likely that they’ll be the ones to score nominations. We’ll just have to wait until the 2023 Emmy nominations are announced to find out for sure.
In the meantime, you can see Olivia Cooke as Alicent in the first season of House of the Dragon, which is currently streaming on HBO Max. Cooke also had a role in the 2022 series Slow Horses, which you can stream on Apple TV+. As for when you can see Cooke next, look out for her upcoming film Mother’s Milk, which has a TBA release date, and the second season of House of the Dragon in 2024.
