Earlier this year, co-star Olivia Cooke revealed details of her role in the show.

Cooke plays Alicent Hightower in the HBO series. Her storyline sees her go up against the house of Targaryen for control of the throne.

“She’s very complex and I think people are gonna want to see the worst in her,” Cooke told Collider.

However, she added: “What’s amazing about Game Of Thrones, like we saw in the past series, is that one season, you hate a character, and the next, you absolutely love them and will go to the ends of the earth for them.”
