People just realized that Emmy-nominated ‘Game of Thrones’ star Alfie Allen is Lily Allen’s brother, and she once viciously dragged him in a song
People are celebrating Alfie Allen‘s glow-up after he was recently nominated for an Emmy for his performance as Theon on “Game of Thrones.” Allen is the younger brother of singer Lily Allen, who once wrote a song called “Alfie” about her then-slacker younger brother. In the song, Lily begs Alfie to stop smoking weed in his room all day and to “please use your brain.” “I just can’t sit back and watch you waste your life away,” Lily wrote in the song. Fans were quick to point out that Alfie actually has turned his life around since Lily released the song in 2006 – and is now even nominated for a major award.

I thought it was really flattering.” Foto: Lily Allen (left) released her song “Alfie” (about her younger brother Alfie Allen, right) in 2006.sourceClaire Greenway/Getty Images In light of Alfie’s recent Emmy nomination, however, Lily has been nothing but supportive, sharing a congratulatory message on her Instagram story.
