Game of Thrones is one of those popular cult shows that you just can’t escape, so even if you don’t watch the show chances are you know something about it. But, for those of us who do watch the show getting the chance to meet our favorite actors portraying some of our favorite characters is like a dream come true.
For Olivia Bowes meeting Alfie Allen AKA Theon Greyjoy was probably one of the best days of her life if her smile in the picture is anything to go off of.
Naturally, dear ol’ Olivia wanted to christen her selfie with Allen with a clever caption, and for those of you who watch GoT then you know that Theon has been through some real heavy stuff (some of it maybe is deserved depending on who you ask lol).
So, of course, the caption was actually pretty funny for what it was. *SPOILERS AHEAD* Olivia wrote, “Unlike Theon, I grew some balls and asked for a photo.” The caption was embellished with eggplant and cherry emojis for flavor.
And if you don’t know by now, Theon Greyjoy was castrated by Ramsay Bolton and therefore he is literally lacking some reproductive organs.
But, alas, Allen was pretty unwilling to let Olivia get away with a lie and he came swooping in to save Theon’s honor with this comment: “Actually your mum asked for you.”
Of course, the GoT fandom lost their minds at this and I like to imagine them as the gif below.
The reply was actually spotted by another GoT fan who took the story to twitter via screenshot. “Alfie’s comment i’m screaming,” Twitter user Alexia wrote.
Since then the tweet has been shared upward to about 5000 times and liked 12,000 times.
It’s not every day when one of your favorite actors has the opportunity to get back at your clever caption with a clever (and probably truthful) comment of their own.
Then again, Theon is on the road to redemption so who can blame Allen for wanting to give his character a bit of a break? This is definitely something that Olivia will never forget. And she can say Alfie Allen not only took a selfie with her but he also commented on her Instagram page!
