Kent only appeared very briefly in "Game of Thrones", but his scene should be well known to many. In the final episode of season four, Kent appears as a goatherd before Daenerys Targaryen, who has taken charge of the desert town of Mereen. He carries a bundle of cloth full of human bones, badly charred. He laments that Daenerys Targaryen's greatest dragon, Drogon, burned his daughter to death. She then imprisons two of her three dragons under the palace.
His last Instagram post is from July 24, apparently from a wedding reception in Santorini, Greece. Kent, who is being picked up by another man in the picture, captioned the picture with the Toy Story saying, "To infinity, and beyond."
