British actor, Alfie Allen, joined Britain’s America’s Cup sailors in New York today as they prepare to do battle in the next Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series event which starts tomorrow.
Allen took time out from a busy schedule of rehearsals for his West End debut in Jesse Eisenberg’s play THE SPOILS to join Sir Ben Ainslie and the Land Rover BAR team on the Hudson River for a showdown with America’s Cup Defenders Oracle Team USA.
All eyes were on the British team and the Game of Thrones star as Land Rover BAR made its inaugural outing in New York. Practice racing played out in front of the Statue of Liberty reigniting the rivalry ahead of this weekend’s sailing spectacle (Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th).
Allen, who plays Theon Greyjoy in the award winning HBO series, swapped his furs for a wetsuit to experience the thrill of flying on water aboard Land Rover BAR’s foiling catamaran under the dramatic backdrop of the Manhattan skyline.
