Alan plays Theon Greyjoy on the HBO series, and then will be seen in TIFF's beloved "Jojo's Rabbit".
Like any fantasy actor in the Emmy-winning fantasy series, Emmy-starring Game of Thrones Alfie Allen is trying to navigate life after Vasteras. In a new interview with Esther Zuckerman from The Thrillist, the UK-based actor and 2019 Prime Minister-nominated Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in the Drama Series gave a posthumous time after "Game of Thrones", which ended its final season last year May.  After playing Theon Greyjoy, one of the show's most compelling antiheroes, Alan heads to the big screen, starring in two films that are being recognized by the Toronto International Film Festival: "How to Build a Girl" and " Jojo Rabbit. "The latest film features the People's Choice Award ̵
Talking about Game of Thrones, Alan said, "It was great at first, it was brilliant … And then my character started to get sick. So it got a little dark. "
If your character rises from the ashes of the show's" beloved family of the series "and the humiliation season after being captured during a hostile take on the throne war, only for have your penis cut off by a man named Ramsay Bolton, then, yeah, you're probably not well after that. (Alan is not the only one to come out of Game of Thrones with some psychological damage; writer George R. R. Martin has admitted that the series "wasn't very good for me.")
Recognizing that he was acting in "Game of Thrones was "getting sick" but was still grateful for the experience, Alan said, "Without disrespect for HBO or any of the directors I've worked with – after a while, because it's such a jungle on the show, you owe more the words they write, rather than the kind of character you think you have created yourself … Do something [to] who plays in this game to respect what they do, but to respect what you have to bring it. " From her first nomination for Amy, Alan said," Come back when we started making Thrones, I won't try and pretend to be completely naive to Amy, but I thought … like, wow, maybe I'll be there someday, but he's gone. This dream disappeared long ago. "
Well, that dream is already a reality, as Alan is one of the presenters on Sunday night's award.
