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.

The New Year brings with it new hopes and opportunities for everyone around the world. People all over the world are trying to get back on their feet after everything that happened in the Red Wedding year. Many are trying to get a fresh start, including some of Game of Thrones stars. Emilia Clarke, famous for playing Daenerys Targaryen, recently sold off her lavish California home at $4.4 million.

The modern home in Los Angeles’ artsy beachside Venice neighbourhood was truly a fit for the Queen of Dragons. The 2,817-square-foot home was built in 2009. It includes two bedrooms and three full bathrooms.

The gated property features a courtyard with a 30-foot pool and multiple areas for lounging, including a covered space. The front patio has 80-year-old olive trees. The 0.12-acre property offers privacy behind its walls and mature greenery. It is also conveniently close to the beach and hip shopping and dining around the corner on Abbot Kinney Boulevard.

Clarke paid $4.6 million for the property in 2016, records show. She put it on the market for just under $5 million in August. It sold just before the end of the year after a price cut in November.

This might indicate Emilia plans to stay in England permanently. Earlier in 2020, Maisie Williams expressed her desire to move to France with her boyfriend. Do you have any such plans? Talk to us in the comments below!

The year 2020 was tough for people all around the world. In times like these, they need a distraction for momentary relief. That’s where the entertainment industry steps in. The artists work really hard on and off-screen to manage their job as well as their family. Some put up a smile even when they face grave problems in real life, like Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa. Entertainment Weekly recently honoured Game of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal for his performance on The Mandalorian.

Pascal is one of the actors who was titled Entertainer of The Year, 2020 by Entertainment Weekly. The show Mandalorian kept the audience hooked all through the year, pretty much like how Game of Thrones did for a decade. Moreover, Pedro was a part of both.

It is why I wanted to do this show. Selfishly, I knew [the Child, a.k.a. Baby Yoda] was likely to make people fall in love with the show,” Pedro explained to Entertainment Weekly.

He continued, “I’m not even sure if I would be able to do it if it weren’t for the amount of direct experience that I’ve had with being on stage to understand how to posture yourself, how to physically frame yourself into something and to tell a story with a gesture, with a stance, or with very, very specific vocal intonation.”

Keeping viewers interested in an act for such a long time is not an easy job. Talk to us and congratulate Pedro over his achievement in the comments below!
