The stars of Game of Thrones would like their fans to pay attention to a war that is not at all fictional.
Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and more actors from the HBO show, past and present, came together in a PSA for the International Rescue Committee, appealing to viewers to donate money to aid Syrian refugees.
“Mass exodus: Millions on the move, escaping war, famine and destruction," Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, says in the ad. The rest of the cast joins her: “Sixty million people are displaced worldwide.” “Real people, now on the most dangerous journey of all.”
The campaign also involves a contest to win a trip to join the cast at the Los Angeles premiere of the show's sixth season.
