Game of Thrones’ ‘Milk Boy’ Robin Arryn is unrecognisable from past seasons

Just a heads up folks – there are NO SPOILERS in this article. Good? Okay.

The creepiest kid in Westeros has had a glow up

There are lots of weird characters in Game of Thrones, but Robin Arryn takes some beating.

When Arryn, played by Lino Facioli, first appeared on the show many moons ago, he was a weird little creep who looked like he had a calcium deficiency. He shouldn’t have had a calcium deficiency though because he spent so much time suckling on his mother’s teat.

I mean, he spent days and days drinking that milk from his mum Lysa’s breasts that it was frankly uncomfortable. It’s okay for a child to do it – no discussion necessary – but when you get over a certain age it’s just weird.

In the most recent and final episode of Thrones Robin appeared yet again; his first appearance on the show since season six when he was still a proper creep.

He appeared in the finale, alongside other lords, ladies and important characters we’d not seen in a while to make some extremely important decisions that I won’t spoil for you here.

And, it’s fair to say that despite my reservations, all that milks has made him quite the handsome young man.

That’s right, gone are the perennially tired-looking sunken eyes, gone is the hair that looks drenched in sweat, and gone is the look on his face that just screamed ‘MUMMY!’.

In a world obsessed with two things more than anything – Game of Thrones and the concept of glow ups – you’ll not be surprised to hear that this change in appearance was definitely noticed by viewers.

In the end, Robin only had one line throughout the episode – saying “Aye” – which isn’t much but is significantly better than asking for another morsel of milk.
