After the explosive season 6 finale (opens in new tab) of Game of Thrones (opens in new tab), it's strange to see the actors playing Arya Stark, Cersei Lannister, and Davos Seaworth all together. But the three stars teamed up to go to Greece for a very important reason.
Maisie Williams, Lena Headey, and Liam, Cunningham spent the week after the show's finale meeting Syrian refugees alongside the International Rescue Committee (opens in new tab).

The three actors, who spent time with several refugees, are advocating for the European Union to reconsider its agreement with Turkey. The deal forces refugees to apply for asylum in the "safe third country" before they are allowed to travel to the rest of Europe, according to Time (opens in new tab).
The actors are also using their platform to bring attention to the humanity of those escaping Syria. Many people argue that those fleeing the war torn region could be terrorists, a sentiment that has only increased surrounding U.K.'s Brexit vote and anti-immigrant rhetoric from Republicans in the United States.
Here are some of the best moments and insights from their journey:
