Spoilers for the last EVER Game of Thrones episode are ahead. Read on at your own risk.

After almost a decade, our watch has ended and Game of Thrones has come to a conclusion - whether fans are happy about it or not.

Naturally, there was a lot to take in, in the last instalment; We saw Jon Snow kill Daenerys, Drogon melting the Iron Throne in retaliation, Bran Stark named the King of the Six Kingdoms, Sansa claiming the north and Arya taking off to explore "what's west of Westeros".

59 hilarious memes that sum up the Game of Thrones finale (Recap)

But one of the biggest shocks in the Game of Thrones finale was the transformation of little Robin Arryn - played by Lino Facioli. Who? Oh, you know, that weedy little kid that breastfed waaaay beyond an acceptable age, who was meant to marry his cousin, Queen Sansa (not on our watch!).

A far cry from the mollycoddled dweeb we last saw back in season 6, fans were...impressed with Robin's new lewk, when he returned in the show's last ever episode.

Who plays Robin Arryn on Game of Thrones?

Robin is played by 18-year-old British-Brazilian actor Lino Facioli, who you'll also recognise as Naples from Get Him To The Greek.

We caught a brief glimpse of him, when the lords and ladies of the land met in the Dragon's Pit at King's Landing, to discuss the fate of the Seven Kingdoms, and judge what happened to Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow for their treasonous acts against their queen, Daenerys.

After Sansa savagely put her uncle, Edmure Tully, in his place, the camera panned round the group, as they cast their vote on whether Bran should be king.

While at first viewers wondered who this handsome stranger was, sitting next to Yohn Royce, the penny soon dropped and fans were aghast. No longer is Robin a sickly looking child, but, in fact, a dashing young man who's clearly discovered a new beauty hack.

And the thirst is real...

When Robin's transformation has us questioning our beauty regime...
