Game of Thrones stars Liam Cunningham and Maisie Williams on Wednesday visited the migrant camp at Kara Tepe, on the Aegean island of Lesvos, at the invitation of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), local media report.

During their two-hour visit at the site, the two actors, better known as Davos Seaworth and Arya Stark from the hit HBO cable TV series, got a chance to chat with members of migrant families and play with children staying at the camp.

No more details were immediately available about the visit.

The IRC is a global humanitarian aid, relief and development NGO based in New York. Game of Thrones and IRC recently teamed up to launch the “Rescue Has No Boundaries” campaign to raise awareness and bring aid to the millions of refugees and displaced people around the world.

A total 3,331 migrants and refugees are currently on Lesvos, according to government figures published Wednesday.
