Alfie Allen (born 12.09.1986)
Alfie Allen is an English actor best known for starring as Theon Greyjoy in the TV series 'Game of Thrones'.
Childhood: Alfie Allen was born in Hammersmith, London. His parents are Keith Allen, and actor and singer, and Alison Owen, a film producer. His sister is popstar Lily Allen who once wrote a less-than-flattering song about him called 'Alfie'. He attended St John's College and then the Fine Arts College.
Acting career: Alfie Allen made his acting debut in a 1998 Channel 4 comedy entitled 'You Are Here' written by Matt Lucas and David Walliams. That year also saw him in the movie 'Elizabeth' which also starred Cate Blanchett, Geoffrey Rush and Christopher Eccleston. He had small roles in 2004's 'Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London' with Frankie Muniz, 2007's 'Atonement' with Keira Knightley and James McAvoy and 2008 TV drama 'Casualty 1907'. In 2008, he played the lead role in the play 'Equus'; a role originally played by Daniel Radcliffe. In 2011, he was cast in the fantasy series 'Game Of Thrones' alongside Sean Bean, Richard Madden and Joe Dempsie.
Alfie Allen recalls how "horrible" it was watching Sophie Turner act out a rape scene for Game of Thrones.
The British actor, and younger brother of pop star Lily Allen, stars as Theon Greyjoy in the fantasy series, which is currently in its sixth series. It's known for its violence as well as its explicit sex scenes, and when both were combined it left Alfie feeling shook up.
“I don’t really want to talk about it all that much - but the Season 5 scene that was the wedding night between Ramsay and Sansa - was a horrible day to shoot,” he told news.com.au, referring to a scene in which Alfie's alter ego watches as Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) rapes Sophie's Sansa.
“Sophie Turner is just such a mature, amazing lady that brings life and light on to the set in so many ways but it was a hard day. It really was a horrible day but Sophie really dealt with that issue very, very well.”

The six-minute sketch contained a lot of the current (surviving) cast of the show, like Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Kit Harington, as well as actors like John Bradley (Samwell Tarly), Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy/Reek), Iwan Rheon (Ramsey Bolton) and Charlotte Hope (Myranda).

'Game of Thrones' is infamous for killing off its characters, so without paying attention to the books (as the show seems to be doing) we looked at who we think is destined to go the way of dodo.
Prince Doran - We've only seen Prince Doran Martell (Alexander Siddig) in one episode so far, he's already made a strong impression on everyone. The elder brother of fan favourite Oberyn, who came to a horribly messy end in the last season, Prince Doran is trying his best to keep the peace in Dorne, and stop his people from seeking revenge against the Lannisters. It stands to reason, however, that his death would make give them a great reason to rise up and start a war.

Brienne/Podrick - Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) and Podrick (Daniel Portman) have been giving us a good dose of the "two buddies traveling", following in the footsteps of Tyrion (Peter Dinklage ) and Bronn (Jerome Flynn), and Arya (Maisie Williams) and the Hound (Rory McCann). The problem is, that each of those has come to a rather disastrous ending at some point, and the death of Brienne or Podrick seems likely - especially with what they seem to be getting themselves into.
Security Has Reportedly Been Stepped Up On The Set Of Angela Bassett's New U.k. Tv Drama After The Actress Was Confronted By An Over-zealous Fan.
The Oscar nominee is currently filming World War II series Close to the Enemy in Britain with Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen and Cloud Atlas' Jim Sturgess, and reports suggest she was left shaken by a scary encounter over the weekend (11-12Apr15).
A male fan is said to have lunged at Bassett and was then escorted off the set by security guards.
A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "The man has been causing problems for the whole cast and particularity Alfie, Jim and Angela, who didn't know what was happening as the man just jumped on her and started screaming and shouting in her face. It was so scary that she was left shaken for the rest of the day."

There have been so many awful revenge thrillers lately that we've almost forgotten that it's possible to make a good one, and this is a rare example of striking the right balance of exhilarating action and dark emotion. Yes, there's a high body count, but this isn't a mow-them-down romp: there's a real sense of pain at all of the senseless bloodshed caused by one idiot's inability to conceive that his actions might have repercussions.
The film also gives Keanu Reeves yet another chance to cleverly reinvent himself on-screen as John Wick, a still-feared former mob hitman who left his job to have a happy life with his wife (Bridget Moynahan). But her untimely illness and death have left him a broken man. His only glimmer of hope is her deathbed gift of an adorable puppy to keep him company. Then even this is taken from him, when cocky Russian thug Iosef (Alfie Allen) steals his vintage Mustang and kills the puppy. In need of closure, John resurrects his past, which is a problem because his ex-boss Viggo (Michael Nyqvist) is Iosef's dad, and he knows that John is unstoppable. So Viggo reluctantly offers a massive bounty on John's head, taken up by John's former fellow assassin pals (Willem Dafoe and Adrianne Palicki). But it's doubtful that anyone can stop the legendary John Wick from bringing down the entire Russian mafia.
Intriguingly, everyone in the film knows this legend except the dim-witted moron Iosef, who blithely keeps on carousing while everyone around him prepares for Armageddon. Writer Derek Kolstad and director Chad Stahelski set the story in a fantastical criminal underworld that uses solid gold coins as currency in shimmering underground nightclubs, lavish spas and a mob hotel in which "business" is strictly prohibited. All of this is fiendishly inventive, with a striking visual atmosphere and an even stronger moody tone. At the centre, Reeves gives John a jagged sense of humour as he braces himself wearily for the inevitable carnage, all while trying to control his much deeper emotional pain.
