75 year old Peter Heywood was a pedestrian and involved in a crash in Manchetser on Tuesday, where he was fatally injured.

Teacher Traycie was in the Trafford Park supermarket this afternoon when she spotted the superstar.

She said:

He was posing for pictures with everyone, I didn't have a clue who he was. The guy on the till told me, Gary, he's a massive fan of Game of Thrones and was star struck by him.

He posed happily with quite a few people for pictures.

I don't watch it myself, but took the pictures anyway. He had he's picture taken with numerous Asda staff as well.
