Game of Thrones stars visits Syrian refugee camp in Greece

Game of Thrones

ATHENS: Cast of popular television series Game of Thrones paid a visit to the Syrian refugee camps in Greece and asked the leaders of the European Union to assist the affected persons in every way possible.

Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) met with refugees in the camp and inquired about the problems faced by them.

Headey said, “They (refugees) want to return to their communities and to their neighborhoods. They want their children to continue their education. They want to continue their university and they are stuck. They’re stuck. And they’re unbelievably sad. Understandably. We can do better for them. We must do better for them.”

Williams added, “For me it is about the children … children with so much potential, so many hopes and dreams. Where is the humanity that makes it acceptable for them to languish in refugee camps – in Europe?”

Millions have been displaced in Syria due to the ongoing conflict in the region whereas countless people have died in seas while trying to reach the countries that have allowed migrants to stay.

The finale of Game of Thrones’ seventh season named Winds of Winter aired on Sunday and was well received by the audiences.
