Game of throne actor, Andrew Dunbar dies suddenly at home on Christmas Eve

Game Of Thrones actor Andrew Dunbar died suddenly at his home in Belfast on Christmas Eve, it has emerged.

The actor, who was the body double for Theon Greyjoy who is played by Alfie Allen in the hit show, was in his thirties and also worked as a DJ.

Andrew, from Portrush, Northern Ireland, also worked on hit TV shows such as Line Of Duty and Derry Girls during his career.

Tributes have poured in for the actor, who also worked as a Game of Thrones tour guide, with colleagues praising a 'beautiful soul'.

Paying tribute to Andrew, his friend and fellow actor Andy McClay said he was always fun to be around and a 'kind and decent man'.

He told Belfast Live: 'I’ll never make any sense of it. He was a true person, a talent, kind and decent man and he had a full and good heart.

'His DJ sets were amazing and when he did one set for Game of Thrones, he ended up doing them all for the end of season parties.'
