British popstar Lily Allen says she said "no thanks" to a Game of Thrones cameo because it would've involved her brother feeling her up.

Allen's brother, Alfie Allen, plays Theon Greyjoy in the popular fantasy series.

In a Reddit Ask Me Anything session, Allen admitted she'd been approached to star as his fictional sister in a scene where Greyjoy returns to his homeland, The Iron Islands.

While there, he accidentally comes onto a girl who turns out to be his sister.

"I've been asked to do a Game of Thrones cameo," she wrote.

"(But) I felt uncomfortable because I would have had to go on a horse and he would have touched me up and shit."

"Once they told me what was entailed, I said no thanks."

However she said she would be up for a musical cameo in the future.
