“I think all girls are Wonder Woman no matter their background. It’s all about who you are on the inside. You just have to be yourself.”
“I’ve always believed that little girls with big imaginations become women with vision.”
“I think, if you have a strongly formed opinion of Alicent, whether you hate her or love her, it means that I’ve done my job well.”
“I journaled as my character because I find that’s something that helps me. And, especially with these time skips, I found it so useful to be able to write at the end of a rehearsal day, and then come back to it literally five months later and reread it again and again, and it would get me back into the exact frame of mind that I was in that day.”
“I definitely tried not to think about Game of Thrones or the fans, just because it would distract me from the job at hand. The only people on that you should be trying to—please is the wrong word, but keep happy—are the creative team that is on set with you.”
“Other than acting […] I’ve been exploring the fashion space, which is something I’ve never really had the privilege of doing before. It’s never been something that was accessible to me, so that’s very exciting.”
“ I was not [originally] a fan [of Game of Thrones]. Fantasy isn’t my genre, you know? I’m more of a cheeky romcom kind of gal. Which I think was a good thing in a way that I wasn’t freaking out in that sense.”
“It’s strange as an actor to come into a world that belongs to the fans already, rather than fans, flocking to something we, as actors have created – if that makes sense.”
“There’s a difference between mental health and mental illness, and I am a mentally ill human being. I think you should treat mental illness in the way that you would treat a physical illness. And I have no shame in talking about it.”
“I took a huge dip in my mental health, during the middle of shooting. I wasn’t looking after myself in the way that I should have been. My best friends helped me and propped me up throughout the whole experience.”
” Recognising how your own brain works is so important. I think we forget that we are when mental health is being preached. I think it’s wonderful, but I think it’s preached on a very broad level. As individuals, we’re all going to handle things in different ways.”
“I got to bring some of my closest friends to the London premiere. I get really nervous about press and I get really anxious about [red] carpets – I don’t do well on them. Internally, it’s not my cup of tea. It’s the part of my job that I dislike – even though it tends to be the bit that people romanticise.”
“I turn around and some of my bestest closest friends are there just sobbing on the carpet with pride. And it was one of the most rewarding feelings I’ve ever felt in my life.”
“Having a female friendship on screen, especially between two young women, is one of the most interesting relationships to watch, but also to play as an actor. We played around with toeing the line between platonic and romantic.”
“Your brain can lie to you, your body never does. So listening to your body and how you’re feeling, where you’re feeling things, whether it’s in your stomach or your chest, or whether you feel heavy can often be a sign of what’s going up in your brain that you can’t really understand or communicate.”
“I love meditating and grounding myself physically because it connects me with my brain and emotions.”
“I am a feminist. Feminism is a word that people are not liking at the moment, and I don’t know why.”
“Feminist, by definition, is someone who believes that men and women should be equal. You’re not fighting for women to be above men. We’re not pushing for a power dynamic switch. We want equality. That’s all it is.”
“I tackle [feminism] a lot in the show, whether it be the fact that every decision in Alicent’s life is made by men in power, whether it be the journey of realisation she goes on to reflect on her dad and how he fits into this patriarchal society that she wasn’t aware of, whether it be the internalised misogyny that is pulled out and pushed onto Alicent and Rhaenyra where they end up in competition with one another.”
“If you take away those misogynistic themes [of House of the Dragons], and if you take away that storyline as a whole, these women, these characters are still completely three dimensional. They have a huge amount of depth.”
“Just being involved in this show in any way, shape or form is a huge career move, but I feel so blessed to have worked with incredible people and learned so much as an actor throughout this job.”
Emily Carey has worked her way up to the pinnacle of success in the span of only a few years, which is a remarkable feat in itself. It proves just how talented she is in person.
