Even "Game of Thrones" star Alfie Allen, who plays the despicable Theon Greyjoy, has no idea how Sunday’s season finale of the HBO hit series will turn out. .
After all, it’s a show where the main hero was beheaded in the first season.
And to play a trick on its young star, show-runners David Bienoff and D.B. Weiss sent Allen a fake script for the finale. “They kind of added a scene where Bran jumps out and stabs me in the chest and says, ‘This is my Winterfell, not yours,’ ” says Allen. “And [the instruction] goes, ‘Theon lies on the floor dead.’
“I think after about two or three weeks the guys I was shooting with said, ‘Guys, you should call him up and tell him it’s a joke because he might be sitting there torturing himself, pulling his hair out.’”
Spoiler alert — that particular death scene doesn’t happen.
