In House of The Dragon and one stand-out character on the show was Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen played by Emma D’Arcy. The Targaryen family is represented by D’Arcy’s character. Rhaenyra, the first female heir to the Iron Throne, plays a significant part in House of the Dragon when she launches a war for succession. The princess, despite the fact that it makes her stand out, rejects the notion of being born to govern the Seven Kingdoms rather than to produce heirs.
Now, fans are looking to learn more about the actor’s personal details. We’ve discussed their parents’ details earlier, and now let’s learn about their dating life. Is Emma D’Arcy dating anyone? Let’s learn everything we know here, shall we?
Meet House Of The Dragon Star Emma D’Arcy Alleged Partner, Thomas May Bailey
Actor Emma D’Arcy hasn’t confirmed their dating life but rumors have been circulating that they are dating theatre director Thomas May Bailey. Emma D’Arcy said to Entertainment Weekly that they cobbled together a “really quick audition tape” for the Game of Thrones prequel during lockdown using an iPhone propped up against a bag of chips.
They actually believed they were auditioning for “a Game of Thrones rip-off.” Emma D’Arcy’s alleged partner, who has remained anonymous, had to assist the actor in making a temporary wig to disguise their natural buzz cut for further auditions.
Emma has never been particularly forthcoming about their personal lives, thus they haven’t yet revealed their current romantic situation or past dating history. However, it appears that they are currently happily associated with someone, and based on their online behavior, it may be the playwright-turned-director-of-film Thomas May Bailey.
After all, Thomas hasn’t just been in (or taken) most of the UK-based talent’s recent posts; as can be seen above, he has also just plain hung out with their family.
Emma really admitted that their partner had greatly aided them in the pre-production phase of the HBO series in terms of the iconic wig in a June 2022 interview with Entertainment Weekly. Since they’ve had short hair for a while, they had to greatly improvise for the last Rhaenyra Targaryen auditions (look tests) because it was close to the peak of the epidemic in 2020.
“For 24 hours, me and my partner just tried — I can’t put more emphasis behind that word,” they said. “We hot glued these hair extensions to these wig grips… [and] kept trying until we found something that gave me the illusion I had long hair. And then, every time we taped after that, I would sit in front of the telly, and my partner would do my hair extensions for an hour and a half.”
“All I had were some hair extensions left over from a job,” Emma said. “No way of attaching them to me, no idea how to do that. For 24 hours, me and my partner just tried — I can’t put more emphasis behind that word… We hot glued these hair extensions to these wig grips… We kept trying until we found something that gave me the illusion I had long hair. And then, every time we taped after that, I would sit in front of the telly, and my partner would do my hair extensions for an hour and a half before we taped anything.”
Additionally, there are some titbits on socials, however, about their relationship. They have known each other before 2013. In May 2013, Emma’s mother posted, “Saw my big girl in Oxford last night in the first play she has co-directed as well as acted in. Congratulations Emma D’Arcy & to Thomas Bailey and to the cast and crew. What a superb team & what outstanding performances.”
