Theon Greyjoy
Theon Greyjoy is a major character in the first, second and third seasons. He is played by starring cast member Alfie Allen and debuts in the series premiere. Theon Greyjoy is the heir of Lord Balon Greyjoy of the Iron Islands. He has been a hostage of House Stark since his father’s failed uprising against King Robert Baratheon. Despite his status he became a close friend to Robb Stark. However, after Robb sent him as an emissary to his father during his war against the Iron Throne, Theon turned on the Starks and joined Lord Balon in his campaign to seize the North. He took over Winterfell and installed himself as Prince of Winterfell until he was betrayed by his own crew shortly after.

Theon is the youngest son of Lord Balon and Lady Alannys Greyjoy. Balon is the head of House Greyjoy and Lord of the Iron Islands. The Iron Islands are one of the constituent regions of the Seven Kingdoms and House Greyjoy is one of the Great Houses of the realm. House Greyjoy rule the region from their seat at Pyke and Balon also holds the title Lord Reaper of Pyke.
Young TheonTheon becomes Ned Stark’s ward after his father’s failed rebellion
Theon was born at Pyke. He is Balon and Alannys’ fourth child after Rodrik, Maron, and Yara. Eight years before the start of the series Balon rose in rebellion against the Iron Throne. The ironborn were crushed in a war led by King Robert Baratheon and Lord Eddard Stark. Theon’s brothers were both killed in the fighting. Balon surrendered and was allowed to remain Lord of the Iron Islands on the condition that Theon remain a hostage and ward of Eddard Stark. Theon’s sister Yara has remained on the Iron Islands. Despite his status as a hostage at Winterfell, Theon has been treated well by the Starks. He and Robb Stark are best friends. Theon is a skilled archer. His cocky arrogance and cavalier actions contrast with the staid ways of the North.

    So he’s a born psychopath?

  2. squamish4244

    Well, ‘A Dream of Spring’ sounds like a much better ending than that :)

  3. PaulThePuppetier

    Agreeing with many other people here in the comments,I’d just like to say
    you’re the best interviewer in anything Game of Thrones I’ve ever seen.
    Your work is really appreciated!

  4. MrRacinger322

    Most likely true, but you can’t deny him being a psychopath by nature.

  5. dystopianlove88

    He sounds a lot like Jez from Peep Show! I want to hear him sing “This is
    outrageous! “

  6. Josef Karlsson

    I wanna see an interview with the actor that plays Hodor!

  8. Pravin Maraj

    True. I’m dreading having to see his marriages actually.

  9. Faye Kinney

    shit. he’s gorgeous

  10. Scarecrow545

    Yup. Joffrey is just a spoiled child, Ramsey seems truly sadistic.

  11. SageSmile

    Joffrey is also less fucked up in the books I feel. He’s not really in them
    very much.

  12. Scarecrow545

    I’m still only on A Game Of Thrones, so yeah. =)

  13. Bobby Whitby

    He is a Lannister!!

  14. cat hall

    his hair isnt light enough.. its supposed to be white and make him look
    really sickly from being mistreated by ramsey

  15. trance2307

    By far my favourite GoT character (after Jaimie)

  16. squittyfish

    Theon=Peanutbutter jelly bread.

  17. tsevca

    they actually might have something against him. after all, book ramsey
    doesn´t make him eunuch.

  18. Dz1go

    the internet is dark and full of spoilers. 

  19. TheUndergroundRave

    Alfie impersonating Dan’s accent…yes….hot..

  20. Waffle2Ninja

    Fucking love the cast

  21. Phil P

    Actually Ramsay does make Theon a eunuch in the books. Ramsay constant ly
    tells hin he’s not even a man and when he orders him to get his new wife
    ready for him Theon tells him he can’t because he took his penis and Ramsay
    tells him to use his mouth. Plus its implied like 50 other times go read
    the books instead of looking spoilers up on Wikipedia

  22. Chríss M

    This lady has to be the best interview on Youtube. And since Internet
    interviews are better than TV interviews anyway, I guess that makes her the
    best interviewer in the world!

  23. ilovesuede

    it’s truly a great interview. and Alfie really seems to be a lovely lad. so
    cute how concerned he is about not spoiling it for fans. I am one of those
    catching-up-peeps. luckily I already saw that about Jaime. ;)

  24. Zefn

    he looks better with black hair

  25. johannisco

    Were they both high? Alfie seemed to be stoned and the interviewer ecstasyd
