The 22-year-old Australian Milly Alcock became famous with the “Game Of Thrones” prequel “House Of The Dragon”. The actress already has quite a lot of series experience – but of course the level of awareness through a mega event like “House Of The Dragon” is of a completely different caliber. Apparently, Alcock’s performance as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen was pretty well received too, as Milly Alcock has been one of the top internet searches related to House Of The Dragon since the series started. Her performance also impressed us at DashFUN.
But after there was a time jump of ten years between episode 5 and episode 6, Alcock’s time as a young Rhaenyra is already over – the adult Rhaenyra is now played by Emma D’Arcy. We looked around at other places where you could see Milly Alcock, with a special focus on streaming services.
And indeed: The Netflix subscription includes the mini-series “Pine Gap”, in which Milly Alcock plays. Funny coincidence: Alcock’s “House Of The Dragon” colleague Steve Toussaint (Lord Corlys Velaryon) also plays in the Australian production. “Pine Gap” consists of six episodes and is completely self-contained as a mini-series – so you can watch all episodes in one go.
In the thriller series “Pine GapIt’s about an Australian-American secret service facility in Pine Gap, Australia, where spies from different countries are supposed to work together to defend the Western world order. But should spies ever trust each other completely?
The downside: you might have guessed it, but Milly Alcock doesn’t play any of the adult leads on the show due to her age. Pine Gap is from 2018, when Alcock was still a teenager and accordingly plays a young girl named Marissa Campbell in the series. But the role is not that small: Alcock is in five of the six episodes. And “House Of The Dragon” star Steve Toussaint as one of the main actors even in all six.
So if you want to see Milly Alcock in a role other than that of a Targaryen princess and have a Netflix subscription, you can get a taste of the series without obligation. If you also want to spend a little money, you have another option – and then there’s Alcock even in a leading role:
» “Upright” on Amazon*
In the Australian comedy series Upright, which you can buy on DVD, for example, Milly Alcock plays the runaway Meg, which is picked up by Lucky Flynn (Tim Minchin). Lucky drives across the country to say goodbye to his dying estranged mother – and to bring her a piano. The two outsiders pull themselves together and a crazy road trip begins.
More of “House Of The Dragon”, but without Milly Alcock, will be available on October 3, 2022 on Sky and Wow (formerly Sky Ticket). In episode 7, alongside Emma D’Arcy as Rhaenyra, we also see Olivia Cooke as Alicent, Matt Smith as Daemon and Paddy Considine as Viserys, among others.
