Lily Allen has revealed that she turned down a cameo appearance in the HBO fantasy drama Game of Thrones.

The 29-year-old singer revealed the news during a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), explaining that she was asked to take role of the sister of Theon, who is played by her real life brother, Alfie Allen.

“I've been asked to do a Game of Thrones cameo, they asked me if I'd be interested in playing Theon's sister,” she recalled.

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

Allen added that she would be keen to contribute to the show in another way, writing: "I would be open to doing a musical cameo like Sigur Ros, though."

This was a reference to the Sigur Rós cover of The Rains of Castamere, originally recorded by The National, on a Game of Thrones' episode entitled The Lion and The Rose, which was broadcast on Sky Atlantic on April 14.
