Irish dolphin Fungie can now add another name to his list of famous friends.
Just a week after he showed off his acrobatic skills in the Irish sunshine, Fungie received a special visit from "Game of Thrones" actress Maisie Williams, a vocal advocate for the welfare of dolphins worldwide.
The 19-year-old actress, who found stardom in the role of Arya Stark in the hit HBO show, took to Dingle Harbour to share a morning swim with Ireland’s most famous dolphin and it looks like she certainly enjoyed her adventure in the Atlantic more than Arya’s dunk in the water in last week’s episode.
Williams is a proud animal-rights activist and according to Tuairisc.ie, is currently working on a dolphin-related documentary, using her time in Dingle to shoot some footage with Ireland’s favorite sea mammal as he recovered from an injury sustained last week.
“She’s very much into dolphins in the wild and is against captivity,” Bridget Flannery of Dingle Dolphin Tours told Radio Kerry. “She had a GoPro with her. Fungi was absolutely great.”
Although Fungie received a deep cut last week after being hit by a propeller, he is believed to be recovering well.
The young actress also seemed taken with the Kingdom, tweeting about the Gaeltacht area “breaking my heart.”

Kerry if I tried.
Co. Kerry has been awash with actors for the past few months with the influx of Star Wars stars enjoying the beauty of The Kingdom.
