Before we get going here, fair warning, this is something of a spoiler. So, if you don't want to know anything more about Rhaegar Targaryen, why don't you make like a tree and...

LOL, sorry.

LOL, sorry.

For the rest of you, let's talk about the most mysterious man in Westeros...eldest son of the Mad King, (former) heir to the Iron Throne, and father of Jon Snow: Rhaegar Targaryen.


Because, let's be real, we didn't get a SUPER CLEAR look at him during that flashback wedding ceremony to Lyanna Stark.

HBO: We have no budget for the Rhaegar scene... *Let's recycle Viserys' wig* #GameofThrones

Although, we know (or assume, anyway) he's not a creep like his younger brother, at least.

Anyway, "The Dragon and the Wolf" finally confirmed fan suspicions (and spoiler-filled leaks) that Welsh actor Wilf Scolding played Rhaegar Targaryen on Game of Thrones.

But, because we didn't get a long look at him last night, here's a bunch of adorable photos of Scolding in real life.
