Lily Allen Says ‘Game of Thrones’ Fans Should Be More Concerned For Real-Life Women

According to sources the singer noted that people should not be worrying about the trials faced by made-up female characters in a fantasy TV show.
“Maybe people should be more concerned by women getting screwed out of shit in the real world, than in ‘Game of Thrones’,” she said.
Addressing the recent push for TV and film productions to abandon Georgia and similar states for their anti-abortion laws, Lily said musicians probably wouldn’t follow suit.

“I can’t speak for the music industry, but I doubt they’ll do anything,” she said, adding when asked if she would ever perform there: “I don’t think I’ve been invited to those states anyway.”

Lily then momentarily got a little bit confused when declaring her standpoint on the infamously misnomered debate: “We’re pro-life… no! anti-… f–k! I don’t know what the term is.” Of course, she meant she was pro-female reproductive rights.
GOT faced some backlash for its conclusion, having unceremoniously killed off its two main female contenders for the Iron Throne in the final two episodes. Daenerys Targaryen was stabbed after her quick 180 flip into madness and burning a city to the ground; Cersei Lannister was crushed to death by some bricks that looked like they could have been avoided had she bothered to move a few paces to her right.

In 2014, Lily claimed she was actually considered for the role of Theon’s sister Yara on “Game of Thrones”, but turned it down because of a somewhat incestuous scene involving Alfie.

“I’ve been asked to do a ‘Game of Thrones’ cameo, they asked me if I’d be interested in playing Theon’s sister, and I felt uncomfortable because I would have had to go on a horse and he would have touched me up and s–t,” she revealed in a Reddit AMA. “Once they told me what was entailed, I said no thanks.”
