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.
