Actor Andy McClay was one of those who pay tribute to Andrew Dunbar.
"Everyone always wanted Andrew. There was something about him that was special. People always felt very close to him, happy, excited about the day's work and there was always a lot of fun when he was around," McClay told the Irish website Belfast. Live
"I'd say most of us feel the same way when we got to the set, we wanted Andrew to be there, looking for him. He was like a gel that kept everyone together."
"Always professional and polite, with a big broad beaming smile. A beautiful soul. He'll be missed by the whole GOT family," said Pamela Smyth, head of makeup at Game of Thrones
Dunbar also starred in the Line of Duty series, where he played a corrupt cop in addition to the Krypton and Derry Girls series.
