Game Of Thrones Took Its Love Of Incest To A New Level By Asking Lily Allen To Get Groped By Her Real Brother

BFI 51st London Film Festival: Bricklane - Premiere

You learn something new every day. For instance, did you know that Alfie Allen, who plays Theon Greyjoy on Game of Thrones, is Lily Allen‘s little brother? And did you know that, contrary to popular belief, they aren’t really open to the idea of groping each other?

During an AMA with Reddit, someone asked Lily how her brother managed to secure a part on the hit HBO show– and instead of answering the question, she shared this disturbing little tidbit of information:

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. I would be open to doing a musical cameo like Sigur Ros, though.

Um, okay. This means that someone in the GoT writers’ room had to raise a hand and be like, “You know what this incest plot point needs? More incest.” On top of that, they had to be confident enough in their idea to cast Alfie’s actual sister that they got so far as to ask her. I realize that people in Hollywood tend to be eccentric– and feigned incest between celebrities isn’t something we’ve never seen before– but I feel like there should be some clear-cut boundaries. Like, IDK, don’t ask a guy to have a sexual experience with his sibling on horseback. Let’s start there.

      Also I still can’t believe I literally just found out they were related last night. I’m so oblivious. Sheeeet.
