During an appearance at Comic-Con, he explained how he came up with the backstory for Alicent, expressing, “I’ve never had the freedom to create a whole human like this before. So it’s fun to be able to go. So deep with her.”
I think she is versatile. There are so many layers to her,” Carrey said. “I think a lot of people are already expecting her to be the villain of the show, but bringing her in younger, I think there’s a lot more to explore.”
Some fans of George RR Martin’s novel “Fire & Blood,” on which the series is based, disagreed with Carrey’s portrayal of the young woman.
“I’m 19 years old, so I’m on social media, and I’ve been on social media since I was a kid because I’ve worked since I was a kid, so I’m very aware of things … any hate that comes, it’s just … it’s the person behind the curtain,” he said. “You have to move on from that,” he told the publication.
“But I’ll say I deleted Twitter [after Comic-Con] Because it’s too loud,” Carey added. “Even if it’s good, there’s too many and it’s too loud.”
