It's around 15 minutes into Episode 5, in Season 1 of Game of Thrones, that we first see Alfie Allen's penis. And although his character, Theon Greyjoy, is not the most likeable, his penis was his weapon. And so, when Ramsay savagely chopped off his junk and then taunted him by emphatically eating a sausage, well, we learned that despite Theon having already transformed into an unlikeable character, we couldn't help but feel sorry for the poor guy...
And we're not the only ones!
In fact, British pop star Lilly Allen has recently revealed that she now struggles to watch the hit fantasy series Game Of Thrones after the scene where her brother gets mutilated - as it had that deep an impact on her! She revealed:
I love the show and I'm so proud of him but I can't bear the thought of my brother without a penis.
Would it be weirder if she could bear the thought of him with a penis?
Anyway, now Allen's famous sister has revealed she has found it difficult to tune in to the show ever since! The pop songstress continued:
When he told me it was happening I was fine with it. Then, when I saw it, I just crossed my legs, turned away and tried not to even listen.
And as for Alfie, he admitted that the fourth season, unsurprisingly, "gets dark". Discussing post-penis chop details, the Greyjoy actor revealed:
I don’t think people will find it as hard to watch this year. It depends what kind of person you are. It’s more of a mental torture than it is physical. It’s daunting as an actor. I have to do more telling of the story with my eyes than with words. I’ve never really done that type before.
Well, penis or no penis, I'm sure looking forward to seeing what's in store for Greyjoy and his future on the HBO show. That said, bearing in mind that Game of Thrones is one of the most brutal shows around, being a series regular probably doesn't mean that he's immune against being killed in a very horrific way... Very soon. No one is safe!
Unlike Lily Allen, are you guys enjoying seeing how Theon Greyjoy develops on screen? I certainly am, although I wish he'd been a bit less careful with that razor... Let me know your thoughts in the comment section below!
If I had to lose a body part, I would lose...
