Game of Thrones fans support stuntman's family after sudden death



We have some sad news for Game of Thrones fans. Brian ‘Sonny’ Nickels the stuntman in the first season of the show has passed away at the age of 54. He died of a cardiac arrest in January and is survived by his wife Simone and his two children, Sienna and Rocco. It is yet another bad news after the death of Alfie Allen’s body double Andrew Dunbar a month ago.

However, as per Metro, Game of Thrones fans have once again shown their generous side amidst the gloom. As per the reports, Brian’s friend has set up a Go Fund Me page to support his family. Since then the fans have been donating generously and look set to achieve the target of £500,000. At the time of writing this piece, £27,834 has been raised.

Brian had worked as a stunt performer in a number of popular television shows and films, including three episodes of Game Of Thrones Season 1, Killing Eve, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and several titles in the Marvel franchise such as Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Below is the picture of Brian working in a popular show Peaky Blinders.
