On “Recreation of Thrones,” it’s in all probability good that “all males should die,” as a result of there are already too many dang characters to maintain monitor of.
Effectively, right here’s yet another …
We discovered by way of an HBO infographic final yr that Rhaegar Targaryen ― the son of the Mad King Aerys, and Daenerys and Viserys’ older brother ― is Jon Snow’s father. It’s unknown if he compelled himself on Lyanna Stark, Jon’s mother, or if the 2 ran away collectively (many followers consider the latter), however we all know Prince Rhaegar is the child daddy.
There are rumors that we are going to be seeing a flashback scene in Season 7 involving Rhaegar and Lyanna, and now followers might have found the actor who’ll be enjoying the oldest Targaryen sibling.
As Uproxx factors out, about two months in the past, followers on Reddit predicted that actor Wilf Scolding would tackle the position primarily based on the actor’s supposed Twitter historical past. A Reddit consumer recapped:
Final yr in late September, Lyanna’s actress Aisling Franciosi began following him on twitter. He adopted her again, and he additionally began following the Recreation of Thrones twitter account and Liam Cunningham.
A newer publish appears to have confirmed the information, saying the casting was within the HBO leaks. Redditor tyrantting states:
Its within the HBO leaked file, we cant present full picture as a result of there’s private data. However he’s on the checklist beneath ‘Rhaegar’
If the character does make an on-screen look, it may very well be game-changing. Many theorize that Rhaegar and Lyanna have been by some means married, leaving Jon with a helluva robust declare for the Iron Throne since he wouldn’t be thought of a bastard anymore.
We’ll in all probability have to attend for a flashback scene to formally verify Scolding’s casting, but when the actor may deliver the identical status to Prince Rhaegar as he does to this dramatic studying of the “Recent Prince of Bel-Air” theme, then we’ll inform some other doable Rhaegars, “Yo, Houses. Odor ya later.”
