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

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
