SPOILER ALERT: DO NOT PROCEED IF YOU HAVE NOT COMPLETED THE SERIES!
Let’s take things back to Season 1 of Game of Thrones. We’re introduced to the most irritating child known to man – Robin Arryn, played by Lino Facioli. Don’t remember him? Let us jog your memory.
Robin was the doted-on son of Lysa Arryn (sister of Catelyn Stark), and breast-fed well past what seemed appropriate. He was the Moon Door-obsessed kid who was also briefly engaged to his cousin Sansa Stark.
You may not have realised that this little brat was part of the committee that decided Bran should be named king in the show’s final episode.
“Definitely didn’t expect my morning to start off like this,” Lino Facioli said on Twitter following the show’s epic finale, referencing fans’ new obsession with his glow-up.
The actor also posted several throwback photos to his Instagram account, expressing his appreciation of being involved in such a memorable series.
“9 years ago I had the honour of being invited to work in this incredible series. It’s been a wonderful adventure and I’m so, so thankful for having been able to be a part of it!” he wrote in the caption.
The 18-year-old’s incredible transformation is now being compared to that of Matthew Lewis, who played Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter series. This is where the term ‘Longbottoming’ originated.

Robin Arryn looking so good on the final episode of GOT proves that breastfeeding is really an effective way to feed your children.
