Thirsty ‘Game of Thrones’ fans hail Robin Arryn’s transformation
Breast milk: Apparently, it does a body good.
That’s what “Game of Thrones” fans have decided after seeing Robin Arryn (Brazilian actor Lino Facioli, now 18), the once-sickly-looking Lord of the Vale, who fans feel has blossomed into a bit of a hottie in Sunday’s series finale.
When we first met “Sweet Robin” in Season 1, he was cajoling his mother, Catelyn Stark’s sister Lysa (Kate Dickey) into breastfeeding him – no matter that he was like 10 years old – and demanding that she “make the bad man (Tyrion) fly” out the moon door.
We hadn’t seen him since Season 6’s “The Book of the Stranger,” when Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) visited the Vale to manipulate his stepson into doing his bidding and see a display of the boy’s (nonexistent) archery skills.
If not for the sigil of House Arryn on his tunic we might not have recognized him during the council at the dragon pit where the surviving lords and ladies of Westeros met to choose their next leader. That’s how different Facioli looked.
And the grown-up Robin had “Thrones” fans feeling … thirsty.
“Can we talk about Robin Arryn’s glow up?” asked @alyynnnxo, marveling how the character had gone from dork to dashing.

“According to Tormund, breastmilk does wonders,” replied @NxztPlease, referencing the wildling’s endorsement from Episode 4.
“Can we all agree Robin Arryn served looks? I mean, dang. His mom’s milk worked after all,” added @Zdenalie.
“They can honestly use Robin Arryn’s glow up for an infomercial about the advantages of breastfeeding,” argued @SteffAureus.

“That kid who played Robin Arryn Neville Longbottom’d HARD,” @mike_makowsky cracked, comparing him to the late bloomer from the Harry Potter movie franchise.

But for @kuyakollective, Robin’s new look symbolized how the final season had let down viewers.
“We all deserved an ending to #GameofThrones as powerful as Robin Arryn’s glow up but we didn’t get that,” he lamented.
