This is Rhaegar Targaryen.


And this is Viserys ‘Douche-Bro’ Targaryen.


Your last memory of Viserys might be of him getting his noggin boiled by molten gold courtesy Khal Drogo, but before all the burny burny, he actually looked a lot like Rhaegar. They look ridiculously similar. Like… pretty much exactly the same. The similarities actually extend way beyond regular Targaryen features too. Now we’re not sure whether this was done on purpose for a reason they’ll tell us in the future or if it was just happenstance, but the people of the internet didn’t exactly sleep on this information.

The guy who played Rhaegar is actually a Welsh actor named Wilf Scolding, and this is what he looks like without the signature golden Targaryen mane.


That’s quite a change! It was pretty satisfying to put a face to the name after all these years, though it’s unsure whether we’ll be seeing more of him in the future. I guess we’ll have to wait till 2019 to see. *cries in the corner*
