People went a little crazy when, for the first time in several seasons, we finally saw the return of Robin Arryn, Lord of the Eyrie in the finale, and he looked very, very different. He was certainly not the strange too-old breastfeeding child we once knew. Now, he's a man, and actor Lino Facioli's phone was blowing up after the episode aired in the U.S.
"To be honest, I'm still taking it all in. My parents are just…we were laughing, we were like, This is hilarious, this is crazy. I've got friends being like, 'You've got memes about you, man.' That's their definition of fame," Facioli told Vulture.
The memes began immediately, but after growing up as the weird kid who was too old to still be breastfeeding, Facioli's a fan of the new memes.
"I'll be honest, this is the best I've ever had it in terms of memes. Being that weird kid on Game of Thrones…when I was a teenager, I was like, "How do I deal with this?" I was not that comfortable with it. But it made me get tough skin and have fun with it. Even when it's something that's mocking you, it's about just laughing at it and carrying on and enjoying it. It's a better position that I'm in now, to be able to have more confidence in terms of that critical voice when I didn't know how to deal with it."
