'More dragons, more torture!'
Actor Alfie Allen has told fans what they can expect from the upcoming Game of Thrones season 7 – and it looks set to get a lot ‘darker’.
The actor, who plays Theon Greyjoy in the fantasy series and is brother to Lily Allen, was speaking at the Malta India Fan Convention when he gave some insight into the new series.
“More of the same but better,” he promised, reports fansite Watchers On The Wall – adding that “there will be more dragons… lot’s more torture!”
Speaking of his character Theon’s current mental state in the show, he described him as “skittish and full of fear…Basically, and then that can kind of, I guess, evolve into rage, which you might see…who knows?”
As for a reunion with the Starks, he added: “You mean IF that happens. You gotta stop looking at the internet, guys!
“I would say, [Theon] would feel horrible. He’d feel awful. And he’d see it as a chance to redeem himself.”
Back in 2014, Allen made headlines when sister Lily claimed that she turned down a cameo in Game Of Thrones as her brother would have had to ‘touch her up and shit’. Alfie later denied the claims.
“I heard about this, yeah,” he said. “The only thing I’m going to say on that is that it’s not true. Gemma Whelan was always their first choice for the part. And she’s fantastic. And that’s the only thing I’m going to say about that.”
Meanwhile, fellow cast member Sophie Turner also spoke out about what to expect from her character Sansa Stark and the upcoming plot of Game Of Thrones season seven.
After a new preview was aired at the weekend, Game Of Thrones season 7 is set to air next year.
Meanwhile, author George RR Martin said that the wait for the new book in the series goes on, as he plans to spend most of 2017 working on the sequel ‘The Winds Of Winter’.
Writing on his live journal about an upcoming appearance, Martin said: “This is my last scheduled event for 2016.My appearance schedule for 2017 is very limited, and will remain so until WINDS is completed. So if you want to meet me or get a book signed, this will be the last chance for a good few months.”
