Game Of Thrones star Alfie Allen may have only been filming in Liverpool for just over a week but he’s already found himself a favourite restaurant for a big breakfast.
The 28-year-old actor has been spotted on a daily basis tucking in at Shiraz Turkish restaurant and cafe on North John Street before his morning call for filming.
Londoner Alfie, who is the younger brother of singer Lily Allen and son of actor Keith, has become a regular at the eaterie during shooting for the new BBC2 drama Close to the Enemy which has been on location in and around Exchange Flags and the old Martin’s Bank building.
Alfie, who has also appeared in films including Plastic and Powder – which was filmed here in Liverpool in 2009/2010 – revealed his new found love for the city centre cafe while he was taking a break from the Stephen Poliakoff period drama.
The actor, probably best known for his role as Theon Greyjoy in the cult HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, reveals: “I absolutely love the place, I’ve been going there quite a bit while I’ve been here. I’ve also heard Moose Coffee shop is good too but I haven’t had chance to check it out yet.”
He has managed to fit in a few nights out after the cameras stop rolling, although he’s not ventured too far from the cast’s base. He’s been spotted enjoying visits to the NYL bar and restaurant at Aloft hotel on North John Street and also Fazenda Brazilian rodizio bar and grill on Exchange Flags.
