Westeros Blog: Alfie Allen Interview

Recommended Posts

ITN has posted a brief video interview with Alfie Allen, the actor cast in the role of Theon Greyjoy (who can very briefly be glimpsed in HBO’s teaser). Alfie mentions that he’ll be playing Eddard Stark’s ward, and that part of his role involves learning an accent. Whether this accent is the same general accent chosen for Westeros, or is intended to represent something of his origins on the Iron Isles, is an interesting question.

We can’t seem to get the video to work—possibly it’s U.K. only?—and so are relying on the written summary. The stills from it show that his hair is a good deal longer than it was when the pilot was shot.

Allen’s has recently completed filming on a film about the 1970’s Northern Soul music scene, SoulBoy.

I watched it no problem, and I'm in the States.

I watched it as well. Maybe it was down for a bit?

He seems very confident! And he definitely has a "presence" that's for sure. I think he'll make a great Theon. :) Thank you for sharing.

Yeah, it finally loaded after awhile. Probably down when I was trying to look.

I find it hilarious that when he says he has to speak with an accent, the interviewer asks him what sort of accent, and he says he can't really talk about it. The production is very, very secretive!
