Singer Lily Allen Almost Played Yara Greyjoy on “Game of Thrones”
But she was too creeped out by the fact that she’d be playing the sister of her real-life brother, and the script called for groping.
Yesterday, while partaking in a Reddit AMA, Lily Allen revealed that Game Of Thrones producers approached her about playing Theon Greyjoy’s sister, Yara. So far so good. Except that Theon Greyjoy is played by Allen’s real younger brother, Alfie, and if you remember correctly, Theon gropes his sister in their first scene together on the series. Remember? If not, see below:
On Reddit, she said, “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.” Word. It’s probably for the best that the siblings decided to pass on the opportunity. The British singer is currently promoting her latest album, Sheezus, while Alfie Allen continues playing the most tortured, pathetic character of all time. Check her out on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last night:
