Keith Allen could join the cast of Game Of Thrones

Role: Keith Allen

Keith Allen could be joining his son in fantasy drama Game Of Thrones after auditioning for a role in the bloodthirsty show.

The actor told The Times he has gone for the role of a slave who leads a rebellion "like Spartacus" in the HBO show filmed in Northern Ireland.

He said: "Every scene is a bloodbath. Frankly, I think I'm cut out for that."

Allen also revealed he had previously auditioned for the part of his son Alfie's on-screen father but said he deliberately failed the screen test.

He said the offer was "a bit cheesy, a bit obvious", so he "did a rubbish audition".

Alfie Allen, who plays the tortured and brainwashed Reek in Game of Thrones, has appeared in every series.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
