Milly Alcock quit school to pursue her dream career and within years the decision turned out to be the best decision of her life as she got to star in the highly awaited prequel series of Game of Thrones.
So, Milly plays princess Rhaenyra Targaryen in House of the Dragon. She was a year 12 pupil at Sydney’s Newtown High School of the Performing Arts when she was cast to play runaway teen Meg in the Australian drama Upright. Because of the uptight filming schedule, she made the decision to quit education. The gamble sure has paid off looking back.
Having said that look at her dating status and more in detail in the rest of this writing.
Milly Alcock On HBO’s House Of The Dragon
Milly Alcock’s character, princess Rhaenyra Targaryen is the heart of the House of the Dragon. She is the rebellious crown princess and dragon rider. Despite being expected to raise heirs someday she is at present a growing tactician who has her own ambition for the throne. And so when her father, King Viserys I (actor Paddy Considine) breaks centuries of tradition and names her as heir, the House of the Dragon actually starts with a clash for the crown that sets off a Targaryen civil war.
The series opens with Rhaenyra’s father ascending to the throne over his older female cousin Rhaenys (Eve Best), who has a stronger claim. But, years later, when the king passes over his brother and names his teenage daughter (Rhaenyra) as his heir there is tension around. And soon enough the future queen also learns that her former closest allies have turned into her biggest rivals.
The older princess Rhaenyra is played by British actress Emma D’Arcy who identifies with the pronouns ‘they/them’.
Does Milly Alcock Have A Boyfriend?
Despite being so popular already, Milly Alcock keeps her private life to herself. She even described herself as extremely underwhelming on her Instagram. So, it is also understandable that she did not post much about her personal life here.
Still, however, some sources report that the up-and-coming actor could be dating someone but is not ready to share her relationship with the public. Some of these insist that Milly has several photos of potential suitors on her timeline. They must be referring to an instance from November 2019 when she posted a snap of her and Luca Ward and captioned the photo, “Boy Asleep”. Or, from the following month when she shared a photo of her smoking a cigarette next to someone named Ari Kwasner-Catsi.
But, in that way, Milly has shared moments with several other friends as well. So, her relationships with Ari and Luca could also be of a platonic kind.
