Alfie Allen has broken his silence following the death of his Game Of Thrones stunt double Andrew Dunbar.

Andrew passed away suddenly at his home in Belfast on Christmas Eve and had previously starred as Theon Greyjoy’s double in the HBO fantasy series.

Addressing the tragic news on his Instagram story, Alfie wrote to his 1million followers: ‘Andrew 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.’

Tributes have been flooding in following Andrew’s death, with a spokesperson for The Extras Dept, saying: ‘To say we are shocked and saddened at the passing of Andrew Dunbar is an understatement.

‘We have so many fond memories of the years Andrew worked with us.’

They added: ‘He was so versatile we could cast him in anything, he was such a talented performer he would always end up being featured, and he was so adored that he was always requested by productions again and again.

‘He’ll be remembered in his roles as a Stark and Theon Greyjoy’s Double on Game of Thrones, a corrupt police officer on Line of Duty, the poor fella cornered by Colum on Derry Girls, and a Rebel on Krypton to name a few.

‘But most of all he’ll be remembered by his kind soul and infectious personality. Thank you for all you did for us Andrew. We will miss you dearly.’

Meanwhile, Pamela Smyth, Head of Crowd Makeup on Game Of Thrones told Belfast Live: ‘Even among the thousands of extras that came through the crowd room on Thrones – Andrew always stood out.’

Police are not treating Andrew’s death as suspicious.
