Ned's oldest daughter, Sansa, is named Queen in the North – things work out pretty well for the surviving members of a family plagued by bad luck (to put it lightly) throughout the series.
'I was in the smallest room with the casting director, they didn’t even have a reader, and that was the furthest I ever got. It was that bad,' Olsen added.
Olsen didn't give any other details about her audition, and it isn't known if she auditioned for the original pilot, directed by Thomas McCarthy (Spotlight), or the re-shot pilot, directed by Timothy Van Patten (The Sopranos).

Other roles that were re-cast include Catelyn Stark, with Jennifer Ehle portraying the Stark matriarch in the original pilot, replaced by Michelle Fairley.

'Yeah. I’ve never wanted to be put in a box as an actor. And I’ve certainly avoided anything that attached youth and beauty to being an actor,' she added.
'That was something that I felt like was damaging to a career — it becomes limiting. What I did know is I like blockbuster movies as well, but I was not being considered for them. Why was that?' she said.
'So I started taking generals. When it comes to Marvel, that was the result of a general meeting,' she added.
