House of the Dragon Star Emily Carey in Two-Piece Workout Gear Shows Off Red Hair

Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 

Emily Carey is showing off her new 'do. In a new social media post the House of the Dragon star reveals her fiery red hair for her new series, Geek Girl. She shared the clip via her Instagram Stories. How does the 20-year-old approach diet, exercise, and self-care? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits. 



Emily loves books. She recently revealed that she "grew up" reading the Geek Girl series. One Harvard study published in Social Science & Medicine found that people who read books regularly had a 20% lower risk of dying over the next 12 years compared with people who weren't readers or who read periodicals. 


Beach Walks

Emily goes on lots of walks. Here she is taking her dog for a walk on the beach. Going for a daily walk can be a game changer in terms of exercise, especially at a brisk speed. One study published in JAMA Internal Medicine found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.


Social Media Cleanses

Emily takes breaks from social media when she needs to. "I love social media. I'm 19, so I'm all 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 conscious of things … Any hate that comes in, it's just … It's a person behind a screen. You just have to move on from it," she told Grazia. "But I will say I did delete Twitter [after Comic-Con] because it's just so loud. Even when it's good, there's so many and it's so loud. I love the buzz, don't get me wrong, but sometimes it can be overwhelming, and that's me being completely transparent."

Carey is all about TikTok and making up fun dances, like in this video of herself and her mom doing a dance together. "Mum walked in on me," she captioned it. Dancing is a great workout for many reasons. Not only does it build strength and promote flexibility, but helps you lose weight and even promotes cardiovascular function. A 2016 study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine determined that people who engaged in moderate-intensity dancing were 46 percent less likely to develop heart disease or die from it than non-dancers. In comparison, moderate-intensity walkers were just 25 percent less likely to suffer heart health issues.


Walking Through Her Fe4ars

Carey revealed to Newsweek that House of the Dragon's intimate scenes "scared" her. However, she walked through her fear with the help of an intimacy coordinator on set. "Still being 17 [when cast], the first scene that I read from the show was my sex scene and my intimacy scenes, that includes the scene where I'm bathing the king. … In the rehearsal room, [the coordinator] was a massive help and on-set she was a massive help. Yeah, it was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be," she said.
