Who would be the best actor for the dead dragon prince?

A young Jude Law would probably be my ideal Rhaegar, I think Michael Fassbender would work very well.

Ashley Charles recently caught my attention, looks wise he might be a fit. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4852570/

My general preference would be for a relatively unknown actor if possible.

Never heard of Ashley Charles, but give him a Silver wig and some purple contacts and we've got a Rhaegar.

I wonder if they actually had purple eyes or deep blue, like Elizabeth Taylors, as opposed to light blue that is more common.

You just reminded me, they didn't bother with Dany or Visery's eyes in the TV show. So I doubt they'd bother with his. But no, Rhaegar did have purple eyes, lilac if I'm not mistaken.

Dark lilac or indigo, honestly I think it's stupid caring if they had violet eyes or not I mean how will that affect anything to be honest.

I honestly don't understand why people say her eyes are purple when they are clearly blue

Yeah it was dark lilac. I personally would think it would add so much more to their characters. It would set the Targaryens aside from the rest of the rabble in the series, so people know that their Valyrian and they have dragon blood. Pretty important for Aegon when he comes into the series too, seeing Aegon's eyes in light (and noticing they were indigo-ish) helped Tyrion come to the conclusion that he wasn't just Young Griff.

I think the white wigs are enough /smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> but really many people in the free cities have Valyrian features...

True, but you don't see that in the series either.

I kno, I think Targaryens are more unique in their personalities to be honest, I could spot one a kilometer away and they don't need to be wearing violet lenses

You'd buy him somebody who can play both as the bad guy kidnapping and raping innocent Lyanna Stark or the good guy in the love story of Lyanna Stark. I think if he's too white-knight, then you'd never believe that anybody would have thought he'd be able to kidnap Lyanna Stark. Also you kind of have to buy that Harry Lloyd and Emilia Clarke are his siblings. Plus that inbreed handsome look of House Targaryen.

Actor Tom Hughes? Saw him in Page Eight and was super creepy yet saw him in Casualty 1909 and he's very white-knight.

My guess is because they're a different blue than most people have, much deeper and darker.

/agree.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':agree:' /> I was just thinking this, he seems to fit Rhaegar's description pretty well. He'd have to bulk up a bit though, he's far too skinny for Rhaegar.

I would stop and never watch the show again if Orlando Bloom had any part in this series. Terrible actor!

Who is that guy? Good one DragonKing!

Re. Orlando Bloom. He's not good looking enough. I can't stand the pairings of Bloom (as Rhaegar) and Eva Green (as Lyanna). He's looks like a square, I'm mean a real square shape and Green is just creepy. Ick.

He's a model named Leif Stacey, I don't know much about him but apparently he's American, so we'd need to drop him in England for a while to pick up the accent.

Thank you, I can't stand her, at all. She was awful in Camelot and The dreamers.
