Lily Allen told fans recently on Reddit that she was offered the role of Yara Greyjoy on hit series Game of Thrones. Allen's brother Alfie stars in the HBO show as Theon Greyjoy and once he was cast Lily says she was also approached.

Allen revealed on an Ask Me Anything session on the front page of the internet that she could be playing the role that Gemma Whelan has now. However, once she found out about the incest that would be involved in the role then she swiftly declined.

Allen wrote "I felt uncomfortable because I would have had to go on a horse and he would have touched me up and s***. Once they told me what was entailed, I said no thanks.".

She also wrote that she has found it "very difficult to watch" some of her brothers scenes as Theon, especially those where he is opposite Iwan Rheon who plays Ramsay Snow. Lily remains open to a cameo appearance in the HBO show, however, but would prefer a "musical cameo like Sigur Rós" to a more technical acting role if possible.

Lily Allen is never too far from controversey and recently she was accused of mocking pop princess Beyonce after a recent appearance at G.A.Y. in London. Allen got very defensive on Twitter after the accusations stating that she has nothing but the utmost respect for Queen B.
