Season 6 introduced us to Lyanna Stark (Jon Snow’s mother), but even after 6 Seasons, we haven’t yet been able to witness the most talked about character, Rhaegar Targaryen (Jon Snow’s father). However, all that might just change in season 7.
According to Game of Thrones news site “Watchers on The Wall“, one specific casting call fits Rhaegar’s description. The casting call says, “Young Lord in his late 20’s. He’s a tall, handsome young lord, and the show is looking for a white actor who uses the RP accent. He’s scheduled to shoot in the week commencing September 20th.”
The age, body type and handsomeness seem to fit Rhaegar’s description. (He’s also described in the book as “beautiful,” so that probably means the audience is in for some serious eye candy.) Watchers on the Wall reports the RP accent, or “Received Pronunciation” ― also referred to as “The Queen’s English” ― is the English accent often used around King’s Landing in “Game of Thrones.” That fits Rhaegar, too.
With more of Bran Stark’s visions coming, getting a glimpse of the great Rhaegar Targaryen doesn’t sound impossible. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope that we get to finally see Rhaegar in Season 7.
