In a new interview, the Emmy-nominated actor opens up about the difficulty of shooting the iconic series.
“I was pouring my all into this character, and I would feel it at times, when I would enter rooms and people would give me a certain look,” Allen says of playing the tortured Theon Greyjoy. “It was like I was wearing a really bad outfit or something. That was testing, at times, without a shadow of a doubt.”
He adds, “Even up to the point of getting an Emmy nomination, this character did make me get inside my own head a lot, and there were dark, dark moments. To have fans give the character a pat on the back after all of it, and end it on a note of positivity for Theon, that feels nice.”

Allen also speaks about some of the fan backlash to the final episodes of the beloved series.
“What p***es me off, though, is when you see people like the camera operators, who are the best in the world – people behind the scenes who break their backs for this show – who are then getting trolled online by people. I can’t even delve into that world too much, for my own sanity. But to read all that stuff… Ppeople laying into the DPs. It blows my mind.”
