Lily Allen Passed On GAME OF THRONES Role As It Required Her Brother To Grope Her

Recently, Lily Allen participated in a Reddit AMA. During the event the British pop-singer revealed that she turned down a Game of Thrones role because it involved icky scenes with Theon Greyjoy, who happens to be played by her brother, Alfie Allen.

Many of you may not know this but actor Alfie Allen, who plays Theon Greyjoy on Game of Thrones, is Lily Allen's brother. During a recent Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), Lily Allen was asked to share her thoughts on her brother being apart of HBO's Emmy-winning fantasy series. She then revealed that she was pursued for the show as well but turned down the offer because the role reeked.
"I've been asked to do a Game of Thrones cameo, they asked me if I'd be interested in playing Theon's sister, and I felt uncomfortable because I would have had to go on a horse and he would have touched me up and shit. Once they told me what was entailed, I said no thanks." - Lily Allen

She's referring to an infamous season 2 scene from "The Night Lands." An arrogant Theon Greyjoy had just arrived at the Iron Islands, his old stomping grounds. He's disappointed that he's not greeted with any fanfare. His disappointment soon dissipates when he is approached by an attractive woman, who appears to be a commoner. She offers him a ride to Pyke, which he accepts. The two immediately begin a flirtatious banter. While on horseback, a cocky Theon boldy fondles the woman. A few scenes later his female companion reveals she's actually Theon's older sister, Yara.
Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plots, lust and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men...all will play the 'Game of Thrones.'

Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Ser Jaime Lannister, Lena Headey as Queen Cersei Lannister, Emilia Clarke as Queen Daenerys Targaryen, Kit Harington as Jon Snow, Aidan Gillen as Lord Petyr Baelish, Charles Dance as Lord Tywin Lannister, Natalie Dormer as Lady Margaery Tyrell, Liam Cunningham as Ser Davos Seaworth, Stephen Dillane as King Stannis Baratheon, Carice van Houten as Lady Melisandre, Alfie Allen as Prince Theon Greyjoy, John Bradley as Samwell Tarly, Jack Gleeson as King Joffrey Baratheon, Isaac Hempstead-Wright as Bran Stark, Sophie Turner as Lady Sansa Stark, Maisie Williams as Lady Arya Stark, Gwendoline Christie as Brienne of Tarth and Jerome Flynn as Ser Bronn.

Well that's a shame
Shroombeast - 5/20/2014, 12:05 AM
Is that second image necessary? Lmao, damn.
ReeferInferno - 5/20/2014, 12:07 AM
This has to be a joke, cause that's some actually fecked up sh!t.
Mercwitham0uth - 5/20/2014, 12:13 AM
Incest is best put your sister to the test. :)

They love to push things on the show.

Like that sex scene with the brother and sister Jamie and Cersei right there almost on top of Joffrey's dead body.

R.R. Martin didn't even write it to be so 'rapey'.

“In the novels, Jaime is not present at Joffrey’s death, and indeed, Cersei has been fearful that he is dead himself, that she has lost both the son and the father/ lover/ brother. And then suddenly Jaime is there before her. Maimed and changed, but Jaime nonetheless. Though the time and place is wildly inappropriate and Cersei is fearful of discovery, she is as hungry for him as he is for her." - R.R. Martin

They've done this before, too. HBO just tries to stir up controversy to keep the show relevant and I get that, but having Lily get actually felt up by her brother and him sticking his hands between her legs is just not the kind of thing I'd want to see.

Ugh...I couldn't EVER imagine doing that if I were him.

tv and book its weird but necessary for the plot and character development so whatever. but in real life its just [frick]ing gross.
SuperCat - 5/20/2014, 12:43 AM
Can't really blame her though. That would have been a serious mind f*ck (for her and fans).
McGee - 5/20/2014, 12:44 AM
Oh whatever. We've all felt up our sisters.
McGee - 5/20/2014, 12:45 AM
Wait, are there some people here not from America?
Humperdink - 5/20/2014, 12:49 AM

You mean when you were four or five years old and playing doctor so it's excusable?

Please say that's what you mean.
Ozwald - 5/20/2014, 12:49 AM
That's messed up.
McGee - 5/20/2014, 12:49 AM
All joking should all thank nail for that second picture.
Humperdink - 5/20/2014, 12:52 AM
Thanks Nail.
That second picture, after reading the title and knowing about that scene, got a genuine shudder from me when I saw it.

Authentic. I felt that one in the core of my spine.
Felt like someone poured ice down my back!
Humperdink - 5/20/2014, 12:54 AM that Biggie Smalls in a crown on Lily's dress?

@StarYeezus - Wow, you're not just suggesting incest with that image but also pedophilia. Please, don't do that.

Just post a creepy image of Bryan Singer and move on.

I think we all hope Age of Ultron is comic book accurate.

McGee - 5/20/2014, 1:11 AM

I sense bigotry! Stop being ignorant and educate yourself!

mgeoff88 - 5/20/2014, 1:25 AM
WTF??? That is just wrong. What was the casting director for GOT thinking? Of course she's going to turn down the role.

@Humperdink LOL! Yah, she is gangsta.
charlie2094 - 5/20/2014, 1:30 AM
The hell? This is something they genuinely thought she'd be down for? That'd just be weird
Humperdink - 5/20/2014, 1:46 AM
Plus, has Lily ever even acted? The woman they hired for the role seems like she's almost perfect for it. She's got this sort of stone-faced menace about her.

Maybe that would have been a lot of screen time for Lily.
Humperdink - 5/20/2014, 1:47 AM

LOL...well that would be a real life Cleetus from The Simpsons.
Nubase - 5/20/2014, 1:47 AM
a lot of UK actresses turn down GOF because of the nudity, another fact is that britsh female porn stars are hired for the sex scenes, it was in the tablods here in the UK, the request is that they must be natural looking no breast implants and no tattoos
RedMosquito - 5/20/2014, 2:03 AM
Since when did Lily Allen act? Is she even an actor? Can't be any worse than her god awful singing I suppose.....
HitGirl13 - 5/20/2014, 2:30 AM
Yeah I don't buy that. With the way scenes are filmed you don't have to grope anyone. It's not like Theon actually felt of Asha's [foo foo]. Come on now.
TheDpool - 5/20/2014, 2:39 AM
If only she was from the south

its only since she's become a mother that I've found her attractive
