Milly Alcock: From House of the Dragon to Supergirl

Milly Alcock, the rising star who plays the young version of Rhaenyra Targaryen in the upcoming House of the Dragon, has landed another major role in the DC Universe. The Australian actress has been cast as Supergirl, the iconic superheroine and cousin of Superman, in the new film Superman: Legacy. She will also headline her own solo movie, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, which will adapt the acclaimed comic series by Tom King and Bilquis Evely.

Alcock, who is 23 years old, has been acting since she was 12. She has appeared in several Australian TV shows, such as Upright, Reckoning, and The Gloaming. She also starred in the short film The Furies, which won the Best Short Film award at the Sydney Film Festival in 2021. She is best known for her role as Rhaenyra Targaryen, the ambitious and fierce daughter of King Viserys I, in House of the Dragon, the highly anticipated prequel to Game of Thrones. The show, which is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones, will explore the history of the Targaryen dynasty and the civil war known as the Dance of the Dragons.

Alcock’s casting as Supergirl was announced by James Gunn, the director of DC Studios, who praised her talent and charisma. He said that she embodies Kara Zor-El, the real name of Supergirl, who is a powerful and compassionate hero. He also revealed that Alcock will join Henry Cavill, who will reprise his role as Superman, and other DC stars, such as Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, and Margot Robbie, in the upcoming crossover film Superman: Legacy. The film, which is slated for release in 2025, will follow Superman as he faces a new threat from his home planet of Krypton.

Alcock will also star in her own standalone movie, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, which will be based on the comic series of the same name. The comic, which was written by Tom King and illustrated by Bilquis Evely, follows Supergirl as she travels across the galaxy with a young alien girl named Ruthye, who seeks revenge for the murder of her father. The comic, which has been praised for its emotional and epic storytelling, will be adapted by screenwriter Christina Hodson, who also wrote the scripts for Birds of Prey and The Flash.

Alcock is one of the most promising actors of her generation, and her roles as Rhaenyra Targaryen and Supergirl will surely catapult her to stardom. She has proven her versatility and talent in various genres, from fantasy to drama to comedy. She is also a fan of both Game of Thrones and DC Comics, and has expressed her excitement and gratitude for being part of these beloved franchises. She is a perfect example of a woman who can do it all, and we can’t wait to see her soar as Supergirl.
