Lily Allen was never offered a role on the HBO series "Game of Thrones," a spokesperson for the cable network says, a day after the British singer said she had been asked if she wanted to to make a cameo that would have seen her act in a questionable scene with her real-life brother.
The 29-year-old pop star is the sister of Alfie Allen, who plays Theon Greyjoy / Reek on the hit fantasy show. In a recent Reddit AMA chat with fans, Lily said: "... 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 [expletive]. Once they told me what was entailed, I said no thanks."
"Lily was never offered a role on 'Game of Thrones,'" an HBO spokesperson told OTRC.com on Thursday, May 15.
Spoiler alert: In episode 2 of season 2, which aired in 2012, Theon reunites with his sister after being away for years and does not recognize her initially. They ride a horse together and he flirts with her and gets grabby. She later reveals her identity and he appears horrified.
The role of Theon's sister, Yara Greyjoy, went to Gemma Whelan and she ended up being featured in multiple episodes, including the most recent one, which aired on Sunday (read a RECAP).
The R-rated "Game of Thrones," which is in the middle of its fourth season, is known for featuring an ongoing incestuous relationship between characters Cersei Lannister and her brother Jaime Lannister, who is also the father of her children.
