Alfie Allen’s Emmy Nomination Proves Sister Lily Allen Wrong
Alfie Allen, known for his role as Theon Greyjoy in Game of Thrones, is now an Emmy-nominated actor.
After hearing about the star’s nomination, many fans remembered his sister, Lily Allen, and the song she wrote about her baby brother back in 2006, “Alfie.”
The song was for her first album Alright, Still, and paints a picture of a young man who is lazy and does nothing except play video games and smoke weed.
A verse from the song specifically states:
“Oh, Alfie get up it’s a brand new day,
I just can’t sit back and watch you waste your life away,
You need to get a job because the bills need to get paid,
Get off your lazy arse,
Alfie, please use your brain,
Surely there’s some walls out there that you can go and spray,
I’m feeling guilty if I leading you astray,
Now, how the hell do you ever expect that you’ll get laid
When all you do is stay and play on your computer games?”
Fans took to Twitter to share how Alfie proved Lily wrong and some were even shocked to find out that they were actually siblings.
“So Lily Allen wrote a song on her brother Alfie (Theon Greyjoy) to show how big looser he is…but he proved her wrong with Emmy nomination,” said one user.
