Andrew Dunbar, Theon Greyjoy’s body double on Game of Thrones, passes away

Games of Thrones was a hugely successful show. The success of such magnitude even makes the body double and stuntmen of the show a well-known figure. Andrew Dunbar who acted as a body double for Alfie Allen a.k.a. Theon Greyjoy too was one such figure. However, in heartbreaking news, it has been confirmed that Dunbar passed away at his Belfast home on Christmas Eve.

Dunbar was in his 30’s and the cause of his death has not been revealed. He also featured on TV shows like Line of Duty and Derry Girls. Tributes poured in for Dunbar from all quarters.

Actor Alfie Allen too wrote on his Instagram:

“Andrew Dunbar was an actor who was also a stand in as Theon on ‘GoT’. Extremely shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. To lose a loved one so young, I can only imagine what his family are going through. RIP Andrew xxx,”

Back award nominee and his co-star Andrew McClay was also quoted saying

“Everyone always wanted Andrew. There was just something about him that was special. People always felt good around him, happy, excited for the day’s work and there was always a lot of fun when he was around.”

Pamela Smyth, Head of Crowd Makeup for Game of Thrones, remembered Dunbar:

“Even among the thousands of extras that came through the crowd room on Thrones – Andrew always stood out. Always professional and mannerly with a big broad beaming smile. A beautiful soul – he will be missed by all the GOT family.”

Dunbar appeared on the final three seasons of the show, beginning with the season six’s epic episode ‘Battle of the Bastards‘. The news of his passing has really broken our hearts.

Nathalie Emmanuel to star alongside Kevin Hart and John Travolta in Quibi's Die Hart

Game of Thrones actors have embarked on their respective journies post the show’s run. Since the show has finished, Kit Harington and Richard Madden have joined the Marvel’s universe, Maisie Williams has become a mutant and Sophie Turner is going to be a mother! Nathalie Emmanuel a.k.a. Missandei too has something exciting in her kitty and its big!  Read on to find out!

As per Deadline, Emmanuel has signed her next project with John Travolta and comedian Kevin Hart for an upcoming streaming service Quibi. It is going to be a comedic action series and will be called Die Hart. The production of the show begins in Atlanta this month.

As per the report, Hart plays a fictionalized version of himself who’s tired of being the comedic sidekick. He wants to be a leading action star but there is a catch – Kevin must first train at the world’s greatest action star school, run by a lunatic (Travolta). Pushed to his limits by this action school coach and a tough-minded rival student (Emmanuel), Kevin must survive a series of hilarious, over-the-top action sequences and face his fears if he wants to achieve his dream and land the role of a lifetime.

That sure sounds like fun doesn’t it! Each episode will be of 10 minutes and you can view them on the Quibi app. Emmanuel is surely building a solid lineup after Thrones. She is also going to be seen in the ninth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise

We hope that Emmanuel continues on her fine run and achieve a lot of success. Let us know your views on Die Hart in the comments below!
