Ben Hawkey has been acting since 2010 and made his American debut in Game of Thrones.
In the series he plays the role of Hot Pie. He was announced in the role on 5 October 2010. He initially appeared as a guest star in the first season and returned in this role for the second, third, fourth, and seventh seasons.
Timed to coincide with the premiere of Season 7, actor Hawkey partnered with UK-based food delivery app Deliveroo to open You Know Nothing Jon Dough, a pop-up bakery that sells direwolf-shaped loaves of bread (like the one his character made in Season 4).
