Olivia Cooke says she became obsessed with Game Of Thrones after she auditioned for a part in the upcoming prequel series of the blockbuster show.

Cooke had shared that she did not watch any episode of the hit HBO fantasy series until she landed the role of Alicent Hightower in the upcoming spin-off, House Of The Dragon.

"When I read the script, I hadn't seen any ‘Game Of Thrones'. But then I binged it and now I'm obsessed," Cooke said, according to a report in femalefirst.co.uk.

The actress also talked about the audition process, where she said she had to do "so many self-tapes", and was "on hold for ages" before she was finally given the role.
