When it comes to the Game of Thrones universe, unusual and sometimes concerning relationships sit centrefold. So when House of the Dragon was released, many expected the same. But when it comes to the cast—particularly that of Emma D’Arcy—fans were left wondering who they’re dating.
As we know, D’Arcy plays the older Rhaenyra Targaryen in House Of The Dragon, which is set two centuries before the events of Game of Thrones. Following the heirs of house Targaryen, the family are thrown into the spotlight as they navigate the family’s war of succession and inevitable demise.
Since its premiere, House of the Dragon has consistently broken ratings records, with the show averaging 29 million viewers, a number which grows every week. But of course, with so many eyes on the show comes popularity for its cast, and for D’Arcy, all eyes are on them—and who they could be dating.
Prior to the show, the 30-year-old has been in a variety of projects, such as Wanderlust, alongside Australia’s own Toni Collette. But given their recent rise to fame, not much was known about their love life, until now. Naturally, fans are interested in deep diving into their romantic endeavours.
Below, we unpack Emma D’Arcy’s career, age, star sign, and of course, their relationship status.
Who is Emma D’Arcy?
Emma D’Arcy is a British actor who learned their craft by studying Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Art, which is part of the University of Oxford. Getting their big break in theatre, D’Arcy has appeared in many theatre productions, including The Pillowman, Romeo and Juliet and The Games We Played. Along with theatre, D’Arcy also appeared in a series of TV shows and films, such as Wanderlust, Truth Seekers and now House of the Dragon.
D’Arcy has previously shared that they identify as non-binary and that they prefer to use they/them pronouns, changing their pronouns on Instagram to reflect their non-binary status.
Does Emma D’Arcy have a partner?
Given that D’Arcy prefers to keep their private life away from social media, not much is known about their relationship status. While it’s safe to assume that they are likely single, some have speculated that they are romantically involved with Thomas Bailey, a theatre director.
Made simply by looking at Bailey’s Twitter account, many have spotted that the director has shared quite a few posts praising D’Arcy’s role in the Game of Thrones prequel. But while Bailey could simply be one of the legions of fans praising House of the Dragon, some believe that his choice to only retweet posts about D’Arcy could signal that the pair are linked. Plus, they appeared to have attended the House of the Dragon premiere together, so there’s that.
While D’Arcy has not confirmed any kind of relationship with Bailey, there’s a chance they are dating and perhaps D’Arcy is merely keeping it on the down low.
How old is Emma D’Arcy?
D’Arcy was born on June 27, 1992, making them 30 years old. They are also a Cancer which is a water sign associated with comfort, self-care and maternal energies. Given that the star sign loves to create cozy, safe spaces that serve as their personal sanctuaries, it makes sense that D’Arcy has chosen acting as their home.
