Last year, fans were going crazy over a new theory which suggested that there’s more to the famous R+L=J fan theory. As we all know, the original theory is about Jon Snow being the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark. The modified version of this theory however, suggests that Lyanna Stark had twins- the other child being Meera Reed. You can read about it here in detail.
Digital Spy got in touch with Ellie Kendrick, who plays Meera Reed on Game of Thrones, and asked her views on this theory:
“I genuinely don’t have any idea as we don’t get told anything! But, I don’t know. I think people might just be thinking that because we’ve both got curly hair. In the books, our characters are described quite differently. Hey, I’d love it to be true because it would mean great things for my character, but I’m holding back on speculation for now. I think what’s been going on in George RR Martin’s brain is so much more a complex wormhole than we could possibly imagine. I think there’s definitely a mystery to Meera and Jojen and their parentage, but I think it’ll unwind itself eventually. I can only dream. To be honest, I don’t think Meera would be all that good on the Iron Throne! She’s a little bit of a socialist at heart, I don’t think she’ll be able to rule with the iron fist that the throne requires.”
