In an interview with Entertainment WeeklyEmma D’Arcy shared how they auditioned for a Game of Thrones prequel during a global pandemic via self-recording (read: Tik Tok with – possibly – a lot of money at stake). Despite filming with their iPhone and believing their initial recording was rushed, they were given access to the next round of auditions. And then another round, and then another round. As we said earlier, the performance industry is anything but normal. Thus, D’Arcy ended up talking to showrunners Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik.

At the time, D’Arcy’s hair was very short. The showrunners felt they needed to see what D’arcy would look like with long hair, as Rhaenyra Targaryen – a fairly important role that D’arcy auditioned for – had to have flowing blonde hair. Unfortunately for Darcy, they didn’t have a wig, and with Covid-19 restrictions still in place, they had nowhere to go to get one. So… instead they made one of the loose hair and a wig cap.

In Darcy’s own words: “Within 24 hours, my partner and I just tried to … We glued these hair extensions to these wig clips. We sent pictures to Miguel… And he said, “Can you keep trying?” We kept trying until we found something that gave me the illusion that I had long hair. And then, every time we recorded after that, I would sit in front of the TV and my partner would give me hair extensions for an hour and a half before we recorded anything.”

Ironically, their efforts paid off. Emma D’Arcy was cast in the lead role. They would soon be known as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen.
