Tom Mison! (Sleepy Hollow.) He's masculine, but has sharp features. Natural blue eyes, too. Just needs a wig!

In my head cannon they (rhaegar and lyanna) are played by younger versions of

 

Richard Armitage

and

Rachel Weisz

I know Weisz has a heart shaped face as opposed to a  horse shaped one, but so does maisy williams, so at least they will have each other's looks.

So there's talks that the show could be doing a flashback at the tourney of harrenhall next season. If this is true then surely Rhaegar has to be in it. But I've been thinking for a while now if Rhaegar was casted who could play him or could anyone actually play him? Rhaegar almost sounds perfect while his actions may not have been. The guys meant to be beautiful, can sing to the point women cry, a great warrior, the list goes on. But is he too perfect? Would anyone cast as him just be a disappointment regardless? There's always CGI I guess! 

 

I have the same question as well.There are so many handsome men but handsome with a silver-white-long hair??hmmm....not so much.

I like Tom Hardy.I don't know he is so serious but I can't think of him as Rhaegar although he could play on GoT on some other role but anyway that's not our topic.

I'm afraid we will be disappointed as I was with Lyannas actress(the old Lya not the young one).In the end, even if they don't find someone as handsome as we imagine they can at least find someone who has this charm like Oberyns actor.He wasnt handsome but he had something that made you like him.:wub:

Honestly with all the hype and mystery surrounding Rhaegar, I think it would diminish him to actually show him on screen no matter who does it or how well. Sometimes things are best left to the imagination.

 

:agree:

I really didn't like the girl who played Lyanna either. The young girl seemed perfect, however the older woman was a real disappointment (no offence to her). If they do tourney of harrenhall I hope they recast her

I've always been partial to Alex Pettyfer, but being in Vikings might prevent him from crossing over to GoT.

Johnathon Rhys Meyers, Henry VIII on "The Tudors" could probably do it.  Yes I know that he doesn't have long silver hair, that's why we have wigs and contacts.  I think it has to be about charisma and presence.  Rhaegar is so charismatic that he can make men and women forget their oaths for him.  The actor who portrays him has to make the audience believe that he is still a model of chivalry while he is having a child with a woman he may or may not have raped, while his wife and two young children are about to be brutally murdered.

JRM is too old and looks like a hot mess of late.

Chris Hemsworth. The portrait of Rhaegar Targaryen in The World of Ice and Fire is very similar to Chris Hemsworth.

I think it would be awesome to have Travis Fimmel have a cameo of Rhaegar.

Travis. Not a question. 

Of course he wouldn't take the role, so they would end up digging up some no name actor which they aren't half bad at. Grown up Lyanna was quite okay, Oberyn was phenomenal (sorry if Pedro wasn't no name I've never heard of him before GoT and the hype was all about Oded Fehr), Bella Ramsay was pretty awesome too, as was Arthur Dayne guy and I didn't have a particular problem with Young Ned either. 

But there is also Alexander Dreymon who looks kinda like the best possible crossover between Travis, Alexander Skarsgard and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Perfect Rhaegar, you just need a couple barrels of bleach and peroxide. 

100% agree with you.

I'm a big fan of The Last Kingdom. I've seen a host of average medieval series and this one is good, due to Alexander and his ability to create chemistry with his fellow actors as well as his acting range from deep sensitivity to joking around. Similar traits that Jon Snow showcases in the series.

Also, in terms of appearance - Alexander has kind eyes which I relate to Rhargar possessing as his deeply troubled individual that holds a lot of things back.

I love Jonny but I don't think Rhaegar is the kind of character that would suit him. He would be a perfect young Robert though. He could throw Henry like rage fits and screw half of westeros. (And Rhaegar didn't rape Lyanna)

I really really didn't like the last kingdom as a story, and I didn't even like Uthred. But the actor just sucks you in, because he is beautiful and he channels that "I'm the center of the world but still a victim of misfortune and the burden is so heavy but I love every minute of it because it puts me in the center of the world" charisma in a more subtle manner than Jonathan Rys Myers does. And come on Alexander Dreymon is a Greek god. He just needs a blond wig and a little facial hair.

It would be definately cool if Rhaegar was in Game of Thrones. 

Chris Zylka would be a very good choice. Give him indigo/purple eyes and long silver hair.

It's a shame Ed Skrein was already Daario 1#.  He has the eyes and cheekbones I imagine for Rhaegar.

Depends on how much we see of him. Are we going to see him fight and sing? If he fights he'd be wearing a helmet. Why would we want to see him sing? Seems like a waste of time.
