Who is Alfie Allen?
Alfie Allen is an English actor best known for portraying Theon Greyjoy in Game of Thrones. His performance received significant acclaim. He has also appeared in John Wick and Jojo Rabbit.
Hammersmith, London, England
The actor is the brother of famous singer Lily Allen and the cousin of musician Sam Smith. Between 2017 and 2019, he dated Allie Teilz, and the two have a daughter together. She is called Arrow.
Allen’s debut as a professional actor took place in 1998 in You Are Here, a comedy written by Matt Lucas and David Walliams. He, along with his sister Lily, also appeared in the film Elizabeth, where their mother was a producer.
Early on, he appeared in films like Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London, Atonement, and Casualty 1907, followed by Stones, Sixty Six, and The Other Boleyn Girl. However, he had mostly small roles in these productions.
In 2008, he took over the role held by Daniel Radcliff in Equus. In 2009, he was in the music video for Dust Devil by the band Madness and appeared in the BBC film Freefall. This was followed by roles in Soulboy, The Kid, Freestyle, and Powder in 2010.
Allen auditioned for the role of Jon Snow. Instead, however, he got cast as Theon Greyjoy, a role he would continue throughout the eight seasons of the series as a regular, receiving a Primetime Emmy Award nomination. Theon is a complex character who goes through a harrowing journey of betrayal, torture, and redemption that concludes with the final season. The character was noted as complex and evolving, and well-suited to the dark world of Westeros with its conflicting loyalties and gray morality.
In 2012, he was in Confine. Then, in 2014, he got an important role in John Wick, a hit-action film opposite Keanu Reeves.
In 2016, he filmed a documentary called Football: A Brief History.
In 2018, the actor appeared in The Predator and the following year had a role in Jojo Rabbit, the Oscar-nominated comedy-drama.
In 2021, he was in La Cha Cha and Night Teeth. In addition, he is scheduled to appear in the historical miniseries SAS: Rogue Heroes, where he will play Jock Lewes.
The song Alfie by Lily Allen is about him, with humorous lyrics that don’t exactly portray him in the most flattering way. He is her brother and the cousin of acclaimed musician Sam Smith.
His parents are Alison Owen, a film producer, and Keith Allen, a Scottish actor. His uncle is director and actor Kevin Allen, who directed La Cha Cha, Agent Cody Banks 2, and other films and gave Alfie some of his first roles.
Reportedly, he is good friends with fellow Game of Thrones actors Iwan Rheon, Kit Harington, and Richard Madden. In addition, the actor felt that the set of Game of Thrones was very friendly and a great place for working.
He collaborated with his sister Lily Allen for the soundtrack of How to Build a Girl, which is his only soundtrack credit.
