'Game of Thrones' cast surprises hospice patient after she made a simple request

An 88-year-old hospice patient in Providence, R.I., got the surprise of her life when she told her carers that all she wanted to see was the third episode of "Game of Thrones." 

Claire Walton initially told staff at the HopeHealth Hulitar Hospice Center that she wanted to meet the cast of the popular HBO show before she died, according to CNN. Thinking that her request might be a little farfetched, she decided instead that she simply wanted to watch the highly anticipated battle between the Night King and the people of Winterfell. 

While Walton's wish came true on Sunday, the hospice also had a surprise for her.

Her caretakers had gotten in touch with several of the show's cast members, who sent the elderly woman warm wishes. In total, ten actors came together to say a few words in a recording, the Providence Journal reports. 

"How are you doing, Claire?" said Liam Cunningham, who plays Ser Davos Seaworth. "It’s Liam here...I hope you’re well enough to watch the battle, which is tonight. I wish you the very best ... take care.”

Other notable characters, including Syrio Forel, Pypar, Ser Meryn Trant, a White Walker and Qono, made an appearance as well. 

"I hope you have a wonderful, wonderful episode three, the Battle of Winterfell," said Ian Beattie, who plays Ser Meryn Trant. "I hear it's going to be the best episode ever."

Walton died Monday afternoon, a spokeswoman for HopeHealth said.
