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. 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, two 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.
the Actor Alfie Allen, who plays the character Theon Greyjoy in 'Game of Thrones', is also shocked by the death. He writes the following on Instagram:
'Andrew was an actor, who was also a stand-in for Theon on 'Game of Thrones'. I am extremely shocked and in deep sorrow to hear of his death. To lose someone you love at such a young age. RIP Andrew'.
In connection with the news of Andrew Dunbar's sudden death on christmas eve has several media committed an error in to use a picture of his american colleague with the same name, Andrew Dunbar, known for films such as 'Arrow', 'Dragged Across Concrete' and the Netflix series 'Travellers'.
He placed, therefore, without a look out on Instagram, where he drew attention to the fact that he in no way is death. American Andrew Dunbar wrote the following:
'I have it good. It is very strange that I have to write this. But since I have gotten so many messages about my own death, then I'm going to have it. It is not true. Because of some lazy journalists, who have mistaken my picture with his name, so I am now mixed into his tragic death. I just want to create order in the here the story. And I send my condolences to his family and friends'.

I'm fine. Yes, It's weird that I have to post this but I've been getting lots of messages today about me being dead. Clearly this is not true, but because of some lazy journalism in my photo has been associated with the passing of a man who shares my name. I just wanted to clear up any confusion and give my condolences to his family and friends.
