“I don’t even know that guy”: Elizabeth Olsen Debunks House of the Dragon Rumors, Claims She Doesn’t Even Know Henry Cavill Despite His Illustrious Career

Elizabeth Olsen, Henry Cavil: House of Dragon

Game of Thrones used to rule HBO as its most popular series to be aired during the time of its reign. And now, its prequel series, House of the Dragon is earning its rightful place in a similar way, by wooing the audience off their feet, and that too, with the release of just seven episodes.

Thanks to its amazing success amongst fans, the show has already been renewed for a second season by HBO. And there have been all sorts of rumors as to which new actors might star in the show’s new season.

Rumors even claimed that the WandaVision star Elizabeth Olsen would be introduced as a new cast member in the second season of House of the Dragon, but the actress recently debunked these rumors.

Apparently, Elizabeth Olsen had auditioned for the character of Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones that was finally played by Emilia Clarke. But it looks like that’s not reason enough that Olsen is going to be a part of its prequel series in any way.

“I don’t know how rumors like that get started and people think they’re legitimate”, the 33-year-old actress said in reference to the rumors that claimed she was set to appear in season 2 of House of the Dragon. 

She even went ahead and said she had “never heard of such a thing” like being cast in the HBO series.

Elizabeth Olsen’s thoughts on all the speculation going on

There were also certain rumors about the Sorry for Your Loss actress being the new addition to the House of the Dragon cast for its next season, along with Henry Cavill. To that, Elizabeth Olsen’s reaction was rather amusing.

Though she mentioned being “up to date on House of the Dragon”, she also said that she’d never come across such a rumor. “Also, how random. Why him? Why me?” she asked rhetorically.

While the world knows Cavill best for his role as Superman and through his other shows like The Witcher and Enola Holmes, Olsen seems to be oblivious as to who he is. She claimed that she didn’t even know who Cavill was to begin with let alone work with him in a show. “I can’t even think of how random that is. I don’t even know that guy, either!”

Surely, the fact that despite Cavill’s successful career and popularity, Olsen not even being aware about him is surprising, to say the least. But this also clarified the rumors going on about her appearing in the next season of House of the Dragons. However, Henry Cavill is yet to address the topic.

House of the Dragon was released on August 22, 2022, and is being aired on HBO and HBO Max.
