With season 6 almost here, Game of Thrones fans are searching the internet for anything about the show. Alfie Allen recently talked to the press about his character Theon’s role and the last time fans saw his character.


The last time fans saw Allen, his character was jumping off a waterfall with Sansa played by Sophie Turner. 

”At the beginning of [season] six, you find him running through snowy, freezing forests leading the way with Sansa. They’ve just jumped off the wall of Winterfell and now they’re on the run from Ramsay,” Allen said.

“Everywhere, all the trees, it’s all done with this amazing snow. And we’re running through and we come to a river and Sansa is just too scared basically to get into the river. So I get in. Don’t believe the press shots!”

Allen also added, “It looks like she’s trying to get me out of the river, when I’m actually trying to be the strong one and get her in the river. Makes me look weak.”

When asking if his character would sacrifice himself for Sansa, the actor answered, “He sacrifices himself, because I guess he hasn’t really got much worth or meaning for himself in the world anymore. And so he leads them away — or rather that’s what he’s trying to do. In fact he doesn’t lead them away, because they see Sansa anyway and then Gwendoline Christie turns up as Brienne of Tarth and smashes everyone to sh–.”

The actor also added, “Dan Portman’s there – Pod – and then Pod ends up having a fight with this guy and then Theon stabs the guy in the back with the sword. He kills someone for the first time in ages, which must be a gratifying experience.”

It might not answer all the questions, but it does prepare fans for the split up of Theon and Sansa. All will be revealed on the April 24 premiere. Watch the most recent trailer below for season 6.
