Lily Allen on Games of Thrones Role: Too Incestuous!

What could possibly cause one to turn down a role on Game of Thrones?

How about if one were asked to make sexual advances toward one's own brother?

During a recent Reddit Ask Me Anything chat, the 29-year old singer said she was asked to appear opposite her brother Alfie on the HBO smash, coming on board as his character’s sister.

Why did she politely decline?

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

It’s true. When viewers first meet Yara Greyjoy, it’s been a VERY long time since she has seen her brother - and she plays a trick on him by pretending to make a move

Allen did add that she'd "be open to doing a musical cameo like Sigur Rós" at some point.

The part of Yara Greyjoy instead went to actress Gemma Whelan, who also appeared on Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 6.
