While chatting with The Hollywood Reporter, Elizabeth reflected on the audition.

“I auditioned for, like, the assistant to the casting director in a small room in New York with just a camera on me and them reading the script,” she recalled.

Elizabeth added that she was reading “the Khaleesi speech when she comes out of the fire. It was awful. I didn’t get a callback.”
