House of the Dragon Fans are Freaking Out Over Viral Video of Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke

The much-anticipated TV series, “House of the Dragon,” has fans abuzz, particularly in anticipation of scenes featuring actors Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke. In season two, D’Arcy’s character, Rhaenyra Targaryen, allies herself with Team Black, while Cooke’s character, Alicent Hightower, supports Team Green. As their respective groups – comprised of Targaryens, Hightowers, Cargylls, Velaryons, and dragons – clash, fans are lamenting the likelihood of scenes shared by the actresses being scarce.

Off-Screen Chemistry

Despite their characters being at odds in the series, there’s a palpable camaraderie between D’Arcy and Cooke out of character. This off-screen rapport has been highlighted in a newly-released interview by HBO, in which they demonstrate their easygoing chemistry. Within the interview, D’Arcy playfully refers to co-stars Paddy Considine and Olivia Cooke by their full names, prompting a playful rebuke from Cooke and an audacious response from D’Arcy.

This dynamic between D’Arcy and Cooke has spurred fans into fervent conversation, best exemplified by their lively reactions on Twitter:
