Surprise, Lily Allen lied about being offered a part on ‘Game of Thrones’


A few weeks ago, Lily Allen participated in a Reddit AMA. The AMA was full of arse-kissing, which I’m sure pleased Lily to no end. That’s the whole reason she “returned” to the music industry – she’s a drama queen, she loves free crap, she loves trash-talking other celebrities, she loves to be the center of attention, and she’ll go to the opening of an envelope. Anyway, during the AMA, Lily was asked about her brother, Alfie Allen, and his part as Theon Greyjoy in Game of Thrones. This is what Lily wrote:

Reddit: How did you feel when you told Alfie to get a job and he immediately went & got a job on the coolest show on TV?
: Well, that was about a 5 year disparity between the two! But 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 sh–. Once they told me what was entailed, I said no thanks. I would be open to doing a musical cameo like Sigur Ros, though.”

I included a link to that story a few weeks ago, and many of thought she was full of it, that the character of Yara Greyjoy was no “cameo” and that the role was too important to be played by someone like Lily. Well, you were right. Lily is a liar and a drama queen. Alfie Allen was speaking to Vulture, and this is what he had to say:

Vulture: Your sister Lily Allen recently said she had been asked to play the part of Yara. True?
Alfie Allen:
I heard about this, yeah. The only thing I’m going to say on that is that it’s not true. And also that Gemma Whalen was always their first choice for the part. And she’s fantastic. And that’s the only thing I’m going to say about that.

Wow, Lily Allen just got called out by her own brother. Good. What a stupid, unnecessary lie to tell, right? I mean, it’s not like there are many people on the GoT team who could easily contradict that lie. Oh, wait. Which brings me to my point: how much do you dislike Lily Allen these days?

    She is rarely with her two little kids and husband these days. They will split up soon or already have split up.

  2. Eleonor says:

    While she has my simpathy for what she went through during her pregnancies, I think if you are an entitled a-hole you can’t change that much.

    • Immy says:


    • Miffy says:

      Tough/tragic pregnancies aren’t an excuse to be an ass hat. Just like Heather Mills, Lilly will discover that shilling your sob story as an excuse to act like a pain won’t get you very far. Pity has its limits too.

  3. Lizzie says:

    My whole thing with Lily Allen is that I really really think after her kinda shitty childhood that she wanted the stable normal family. I remember watching the documentary she did with her sister when they were opening their shop and she seemed to genuinely not want to be famous anymore.

    But I think she is, like all celebrities, a big narcissist. She needs the attention that fame brings. I’m sure she loves her kids to death, but they don’t fulfil that need in her to be the centre of attention. Her brother knows what she’s like, I’m sure he just eyerolls at her. I mean….remember that song she wrote about him ‘Alfie’?

  4. Ollyholly says:

    I almost hate Lily Allen, but that amount of feelings for her would mean that I care about her at all, so I guess my indifference keeps me from hating her.

    Although I do love making fun of her, since she is an idiot.

    • AG-UK says:

      +100 she is so irritating and is that her “real ” voice when she sings, it sounds like she is trying to be from the east end not sure if she is as I haven’t followed or cared to follow her.

      • Lemonsorbet says:

        She went to a string of private schools, so her accent is definitely not east end.

  5. SpookySpooks says:

    Well, I love Lily Allen. Love her songs and love her.

    Could ti be that Alfie had to say Gemma was the first choice?
    I don’t get why she would lie about such a thing.

    • Esti says:

      I don’t have any real feelings on her, but it was definitely a lie. The part she’s talking about is a pretty significant one, there’s no way they would have suggested Alfie’s sister do a “cameo” in it.

      • SpookySpooks says:

        Maybe she was joking? She said a lot of things, like that she’s back because of the free stuff and people took it seriously.

      • Lex says:

        Precisely. Asha (or Yara) is important and appears in many episodes… it is not a bried cameo type role done for LOLz. Also, Lily is no actress.

  6. tifzlan says:

    Oh, Reek…

  7. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    She needs to go back to school for grammar and vocabulary lessons. If you’re going to lie, you should at least use words you understand.

  8. lucy says:

    Hmmm, I think what might have happened is someone connected to the show said “how cool would it be if you played Theon’s sister?” and she embellished the story from there.

    There’s no way it would have been a cameo for such a big character, and she’s not a good fit for the strong warrior type anyway.

    Kind of odd that her brother pretty much called her a liar. Makes me think they may not be close at all.

    • Lex says:

      Have you heard the song she wrote about him? That is not what you do to a sibling you are close to. Pay him out in private, sure, but telling the whole world? Very uncool.

      • Aussie girl says:

        Not a big fan but please do share how she dissed her brother and what the lyrics where…?

      • Lemonsorbet says:

        Googled them, and it really isn’t nice. “Get off your lazy arse” etc is something most people would say in private, not release as a single from your debut album. Her brother was in his late teens at the time – cut him some slack!

      • SpookySpooks says:

        It was a joke, the whole song. Who would get offended at that?

      • Chicagogurk says:

        It’s not mean…it’s basically calling him and angry little weed smoking lazy teenager — which encompasses prolly half of the kids I went to school with. Seems typical teenage stuff to me and this was over a decade ago. I’m sure they’re completely different people now.

      • Miffy says:

        The video consisted of a puppet of him masturbating and smoking weed… really, you’d be fine with a sibling (a famous sibling, no less) releasing something like that about you? In your teen years no less?

        She’s a mean spirited little wench in terms of how she treats her family. Apparently, she released a similar song about her sister. But then when he actually does accomplish something and get a career going she has to pretend she had some part in that too?

  9. MisJes says:

    It was pretty shitty of her to lie about being cast in her brother’s show. People were obviously going to follow that claim up. How awkward for him on set.

    I think she’s quite resentful that her brother is carving out a great career for himself on the most successful TV show of the moment, whilst she’s struggling to regain the hype and fame that she enjoyed in her early years of show business. “Well, that was about a five year disparity between the two!” Gee, passive-aggressive much? Your jealously is showing, Lily.

  10. Dani2 says:

    She’s gotten so annoying to me lately, did any of you see the video she put up on instagram of herself dancing topless to one of Drake’s songs? She’s embarassing.

  11. ML says:

    Geez……..she was obviously joking, same with her comments about returning to music for the free stuff. Does nobody get ‘tongue in cheek’ anymore?

    • Kenny Boy says:

      How do you know she was joking? Wouldn’t Alfie say that if it were the case?

    • hannah says:

      I thought that at first, too. But then I reread the quote. If she wanted to make a joke, she would’ve phrased it differently. I know sometimes the sentiment of a statement is lost when it appears in print but in this case it realky does sound like she was just lying, imho.

    • ML says:

      Seriously?? The getting touched up by a horse part is not funny to you? How can that not be taken as a joke? Obviously Alfie has been told not to talk about it, he probably thinks its ridiculous that anyone is, I don’t blame him.

      • in_theory says:

        It’s not getting touched up BY a horse, it’s getting touched up by her brother as Theon ON the horse. That was the scene in the show, anyway. So it would have been life imitating art, you know, because Theon and Asha/Yara are siblings in the books and the actors are siblings in real life.

      • hannah says:

        Touched up BY a horse?

      • merski says:

        Hahahahah, the mental image of Lily Allen getting felt up by a horse is amazing though, hahahah. 😀

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Lol, I see how she phrased the sentence so you thought that, but she’s referring to the scene where Theon tries to feel her up before he realizes she’s his sister.

  12. Jana says:

    Is it really a surprise to anyone that she lied?

  13. Abbott says:

    Yes, that’s exactly what Game of Thrones needs. A cameo from Lily Allen. What is this, Two and Half Men? Shaddup.

    Also, Reek scares me.

    • Algernon says:

      I’m waiting for Reek to murder all the Boltons in their sleep.

      • ScrewStewrat99 says:

        I dunno. Do you think Theon can come back from being Reek? He seems pretty mentally broken. I still debate with myself over feeling sorry for him. I kind of do because what Ramsey has done to him is insane, but I’m still mad at him for betraying the Starks.

      • chicagogurl says:

        This! I always picture Sleepaway Camp.

  14. hunaww says:

    Alfie Allen looks a lot like August Diehl.

    • SpookySpooks says:

      I find both of them really really handsome. Is August also that short?

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        August is supposed to be 1,80m.

        To me he looks like August’s and Paul Banks’ (Interpol) love child.

      • Monkey Towz says:

        I think he looks exactly like a young Brad Dourif (sp?) from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

  15. paola says:

    I can’t stand her. I bet even her family can’t stand her anymore.
    Her children will probably wonder who the woman on every gossip site is.

  16. happymama says:

    Love her. Still think she’s cool. Love her music.

  17. Ella says:

    It reads as a joke to me, just like her comment about the free handbags.

    I notice the same thing with Alexa Chung – she says somehing tongue in cheek and people on this site take it literally.

    Maybe it’s an American vs. British sense of humour thing but I just think everyone cluld lighten up a little 🙂

    • ORLY says:

      That’s a very detailed story for “tongue in cheek”.

    • Esti says:

      I’d buy that if Alfie didn’t sound seriously pissed about it. If she was joking, he didn’t get the memo.

    • Masie says:

      I’m British, but couldn’t see a joke in there. Unless it was a really long-winded joke. Without a punchline.

      I got that the free stuff bit was a joke though so maybe I’m not totally humourless.

  18. TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

    Have no use for her since she admitted that she was getting back into music because she essentially missed the perks. Why are we even talking about this no talent when Jimmy Page, a legend, has just released the remastered first three Led Zeppelin albums with new material. Jimmy Page has more talent in his fingernail than this narcissist has in her entire body, and has more to say about music in general.
    This trick should be thankful that because of today’s low pop standards she’s made any money at all.

    • SpookySpooks says:

      The comment about the free stuff was so obviously a joke. Seriously.

      • TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

        Are you sure about that; Are there that many people just pining for Lily Allen to return to music because what music misses is her creativity. She just doesn’t strike me a one that has an interest in music for it’s own sake – aside from what she can get out of it.

      • SpookySpooks says:

        Yes, I’ve seen that interview and it was obviously a joke.
        I missed her, she’s oneof the rare pop singers I like, along with Mika and Robbie Williams.

  19. original kay says:

    Yara? who is Yara Greyjoy?
    did they change her name from the novels?

    her name is Asha, Asha Greyjoy.

    Why in the world would they change her name?!

    • in_theory says:

      It’s because of the Wildling woman named Osha. They were afraid people who haven’t read the books wouldn’t be able to tell them apart because the names sound so similar. It’s a bit lame, IMO.

    • Jedi says:

      I think they changed it so people wouldnt be confused with Osha, the wildling that is with Rickon and Shaggydog.

      Edit: I see in_theory beat me to it! 🙂

    • original kay says:

      thank you both for your replies!

      I had not heard that the folks making the TV series think the general population is too dim to hear, see, and understand the differences of character between Osha and Asha.

      (triple facepalm)

      • Alex_r says:

        Usually, I would join you in the exasperation towards the show creators but in this case, they are kinda right. TV forums all over are covered with posts about how people can’t recognise who is who and how is one character related to another. There are many reasons to blame the producers but this, in my opinion isn’t one.

  20. LilyT says:

    Haha! Good for her bro. Way to call her on her sh*t.

  21. Livan says:

    I love her music so I am just going to try to ignore all this stupidity!

  22. Grant says:

    I hated her ever since she came for Cheryl Cole. Team Cheryl! (Although I like Lily’s music)

  23. Deedee says:

    Maybe she was jealous? He really is excellent in the role, and i think he outshines her.

  24. Ally8 says:

    I dislike her so much that when her old songs that I used to really enjoy come on my iPod, they irritate me and I skip to the next one.

  25. avewemissedthecakes says:

    Well that has to be embarrassing!
