Olivia Looked Up To Her Mom As A Child

In a chit-chat with the Grazia UK, Olivia shared that she has always looked up to her mother as a kid.

Even though she used to fight with her like a cat and dog as a teenager, she has always taken her advice while doing anything though she did not agree with her most of the time. 

Olivia said that her mom is her confidence. She says she feels blessed and lucky to have her.

Olivia Denied Her Fans

When actors are asked about their films that are not yet premiered, they always politely refuse to talk about it and move to other points. 

The same happened with the series of House Of The Dragon.

Until the series is released, everything about it is kept secret.

The industry follows the same rules everywhere, and the actors must sign the Non-disclosure Agreement when they become a part of that kind of movie and series.

Even in the case of Olivia, she has been successful not slipping any words related to the series as she says she is scared to death. 

In an interview with comicbook.com, Olivia said that she can't say anything. 

She even asked why they even asked those questions.

She denied her fans politely and closed her sentence by saying, ''I can't say, I will be murdered".

After reading the whole script, she felt so emotional inward that her tears burst out within the first three minutes of meeting Darius.

She said it's hard to describe how much she loved the script. 

She also mentioned how much she loved Riz as an actor and knew she wanted to do it after reading the script.
