The Game of Thrones season 6 actors are doing press rounds, which means that some of the characters playing mortal enemies end up doing interviews together, like Alfie Allen and Iwan Rheon. Though playing feuding characters (to say the least) Theon Greyjoy and Ramsay Bolton, the two actors are friends -- and they hugged it out on Jimmy Kimmel Live to prove it!
The pair, whose on-screen interactions include some of the most awful moments of torture since Game of Thrones began airing, went on Kimmel's show last Tuesday to promote their return to Westeros, accompanied by fellow cast member Michael McElhatton, who plays Ramsay's father Roose Bolton. During their appearance, Kimmel pointed out how horrible their characters' relationship is on the HBO show, saying that it'd be nice to show fans that "this is actually acting," suggesting the two actors hug on the show.
Without a second thought, Rheon and Allen hugged it out on the talk show, and they even shared a quick peck, because the current Lord of the North just "couldn't resist," he shared with a laugh. Things got all mushy afterwards, as then Allen and McElhatton hugged it out too and then there was a big, loving group hug between the three.
It's clear Theon/Reek doesn't hold a grudge, even though he totally should.
Asides from hugging it out, the three actors also took a little clip from the GoT season 6 premiere to Kimmel's show. On it, Theon is seen helping Sansa Stark (played by Sophie Turner) escape from Ramsay, just as we left them by the end of season 5, as the two enter an icy Winterfell river in their attempt to flee.
The new clip seems to coincide with what Allen said a few weeks back about his scenes with Sansa.
"He sacrifices himself, because I guess he hasn't really got much worth or meaning for himself in the world anymore," Allen said. "And so he leads them away -- or rather that's what he's trying to do."
Game of Thrones will (finally!) return to HBO this Sunday.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
