Game of Thrones‘s Alfie Allen talks to Clarence about the character arc for his Emmy-nominated performance of Theon Greyjoy in another Emmy-nominee podcast.
The final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones received a record-breaking 32 Emmy nominations. Included within that massive haul is a much-deserved nomination for supporting actor Alfie Allen. One of the original dozen or so actors cast back in 2009, Allen’s trajectory as the troubled Theon Greyjoy brought him a significant amount of obsessive fan derision before ultimately receiveing a full character redemption in his final episode “The Long Night.” That is a hugely deserved redemption after the character was disfigured, shall we say, and rebranded Reek at the hands of the sadistically mad Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon).
Here on the latest Emmy-nominee Water Cooler Podcast, Allen talks about his journey through 10 years of Game of Thrones and what it was like filming those intense mid-series scenes. He also touches on the divisive fan reaction to the final season and what he will take away from 10 years in Winterfell.
