Game of Thrones blab­ber­mouth banned

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

BRI­TISH ac­tor Al­fie Allen (pic­tured with Jaime Win­stone) was banned from a re­cent Game of Thrones me­dia event over fears he would spill se­crets from the hit TV show. Lily Allen’s younger brother, who plays Theon Greyjoy in the TV adap­ta­tion of Ge­orge RR Martin’s best­selling book se­ries, was left out of the Los An­ge­les cast ap­pear­ance be­cause he has a bad habit of talk­ing about up­com­ing plot­lines. ‘‘I’m re­ally bad at keep­ing se­crets,’’ he said. ‘‘There was a press thing af­ter the pre­miere in LA, and I wasn’t al­lowed to go on that. It’s quite an­noy­ing hav­ing to keep tight-lipped. Then again, play­ing the game is quite fun.’’ Allen landed in trou­ble with Game of Thrones bosses af­ter con­firm­ing his char­ac­ter sur­vives a cliffhanger at the end of sea­son two.
