Lily Allen Turned Down 'Game Of Thrones' Role Over Awkward Scene With Brother Alfie

5/15/2014 9:01pm EDT
Lily Allen's outfit has 'Winter is Coming' written all over it.
Lily Allen was offered a part on hit HBO series Game of Thrones, but she turned down the role after learning that it would require some awkward moments with brother Alfie, who currently stars on the show as Theon Greyjoy.

Lily was approached by producers to play the part of Yara Greyjoy (Asha Greyjoy in the book series), but a scene in which Yara is sent to bring Theon before her father in season two required some sexual situations, in which Theon attempts to get in her pants and opens her shirt to feel her up while on horseback.

"They asked me if I'd be interested in playing Theon's sist...

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: Season 2, Episode 5 - 'The Ghost Of Harrenhal'

4/30/2012 7:52pm EDT
Game of Thrones
If there’s one thing “Game of Thrones” doesn’t do, is waste time. Last week’s episode closed with shots of sorceress Melisandre birthing some monstrous shadow, a wispy, manlike demon summoned for some mysterious bidding. This week’s episode, “The Ghost of Harrenhaal,” opened rather routinely: Catelyn and Renly were chatting about kingly things while Brienne helped Renly remove his armor. And then, with a fellow swoop, the shadow demon entered, stabbed Renly, and fled. All in the first five minutes.

The abruptness of the deed was cold, indeed. Brienne cried out in horror at the loss of her ...

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: Season 2, Episode 4 - 'Garden Of Bones'

If last night's episode of "Game of Thrones" doesn't get people talking, I don't know what will.

I'm sure dedicated book fans were expecting those final shots, when sorceress Melisandre gave birth to… a shadow baby? As a non-book reader, I'm murky on the details. But I do know that I finished this episode with an audible exhale of breath. Not only was it the most outwardly fantastical scene of the show so far (with the exception, perhaps, of Dany's dragons), but it was wrought with tension. I was expecting the birth of an illegitimate Stannis baby, after their steamy sex scene last week. W...

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: Meet Brienne Of Tarth And Margaery Tyrell In 'What Is Dead May Never Die'

Game of Thrones
"Game of Thrones" is nothing if not expansive (understatement of the century). Characters who get the silent treatment for long drags of time have a tendency to crop up as soon as they’re forgotten. That reinsertion takes centerfold in this week’s installment, with Renly Baratheon’s quest for glory as the overarching storyline. 

Like his brothers, Robert and Stannis, Renly is a noble man, a little too proud and a little too stubborn to assume the leadership role he so rightfully seeks. With bastard child Joffrey at reign, Westeros is in the thick of an ugly war, new enemies and allegiances...
