Alcock said in the interview that she didn’t know what she was auditioning for, remember, “We don’t even know what the project is, let alone the characters. It’s all fake scripts and mannequins.”
It’s actually a pretty normal thing to do, and as a former actor, I just wanted to add that it might help your mind. Imagine the pressure that is mounting to watch you star in a movie that everyone is raving about, and then turn away. It’s grandiose. What’s odd about all of this is what she says next about the scale of the roles she and Carey have tried out. “I saw that it was ‘Thrones’ in the second audition,” said Alcock, “and then we really didn’t know how big our parts were or who they were until much later in the show. rehearsal.”
That is more surprising. It is thought that the studio and crew wanted to give the actors more time to prepare for the amount of work they were about to take on. However, we do not know at what point in development and/or writing the auditions took place. It may have been early enough that the information has not been established.
