    Robin Arryn, is that you?

    Lino Facioli surprised fans on Sunday when he appeared all grown-up during the "Game of Thrones" finale. The 18-year-old actor appeared near the end of the episode when the prominent figures of Westeros gathered to select a new king. Fans were quick to note the character looked quite a bit different from the breastfed little lord they knew in season one.

    "I'm bending the knee to Lord Robin Arryn [and] his glow up," tweeted one fan.

    "I have a lot of thoughts on the #GameofThronesFinale but I think the biggest takeaway is that Robin Arryn is hot now," wrote another.

    Even Facioli couldn't resist chiming in.

    "Definitely didn't expect my morning to start off like this," he tweeted in response to an article calling his character the "Neville Longbottom of Game of Thrones."

    When asked him to explain himself, his response was pure gold.

    "breastmilk," he quipped. The response was a gentle wink to fans of the show who know Facioli's character continued to be breastfed on the show at an uncomfortably mature age.
