Milly Alcock went from 40K Instagram followers to 1 million over the span of 5 episodes. Insane.

The difference is that GOT build up it's audience over a longer time span. The actors had more time to adjust because their level of fame went up in increments. Milly went from relatively unknown to incredibly famous in a matter of weeks.

That's why Emma asked Emilia for help. She wants to avoid the pitfalls that come with being THAT famous. She prepared ahead of time because she knew it would be overwhelming.

All I'm saying is that I hope Milly has someone that has prepared her or is preparing her on how to cope with level of fame in a healthy way, and how to navigate the changes sudden fame brings. She's a great actor. I want her to succeed.
