Elisabeth further added that it was also the “most awkward audition” ever. The actor was asked to read a monologue in American and British accents. In an interview with Vulture, she said, “When I first started working, I just auditioned for everything, because I like auditioning. And I auditioned for Khaleesi. I forgot that. It was the most awkward audition I’d ever had.”
“(It was from) after she just burned. And she’s making this speech to thousands of people about how she’s their queen. They didn’t know if they wanted a British accent or not. So, you did it in both. It was terrible. Anytime someone says, ‘Bad audition story.’ That’s one I remember,” she further added.
Elisabeth, who garnered huge fame for her superhero Scarlet Witch role in Avengers, confessed that she is a big GoT fan. She said, “I’m just so deep in ‘Game of Thrones’ that all I can think about is Kit Harington (who plays Jon Snow).” Game of Thrones Season 8 Final Episodes Leak: Fans Irked With Conclusion In Ep 5 And Ep 6 Leaked Scenes, Say ‘Worst Ending Ever’
