Iwan Rheon, one of the former stars of Misfits, will join the cast of Game of Thrones in season 3!

Rheon, who played Simon in Misfits, has joined the cast of Game of Thrones, although speculation still exists about what role he will play.

WinterisComing.net has found the following image showing Rheon out in Belfast along with Thrones stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gwendoline Christie and Alfie Allen:

Further, Rheon’s casting agency has updated his CV to say that he is playing the role of “Boy,” which seems to confirm the casting. Winter is Coming speculates that he will play Roose Bolton’s bastard, Ramsay Snow.

    I love Iwan but i’m not a fan of Thrones … but maybe i’ll give it another try.

      I’m pretty much the same. Didn’t get very far into the first season before I was bored senseless. But with all of the buzz and recent casting announcements, I may give it another go.

        • https://twitter.com/#!/HarriFSargeant Harri Sargeant

          I got as far as the Wolf and the Lion.

         Of the books, I felt the 3rd was the tightest written and most action packed

      • Sansa

        It is really slow to begin with. But it gets so much better!

    • CamdenHey


      You won’t regret it!

    Wow if he is going to be Ramsay Snow that is a HUGE role

  • antonia31

    YES. If he’s Ramsey, this confirms they do not intend to hide theon away for multiple seasons, which is a great move since Alfie Allen has done such a fantastic job with the character so far.

    He would be great. Just the look in his eyes

  • Amanda

    Wooh! Casting news always gets me pumped for the next season :D On a more random note, Gwendoline looks adorable in that pic, and is it just me, or is Nikolaj giving Alfie a bizarrely “tender” look? o_O

    • Kate

      Lol I noticed the tender look as well, though I thought it was directed at Iwan. Either way…still rather cute and funny.

  • Susie-Q

    He looks enough like Alfie Allen to make people get confused between the two (Reek!!!)

    you cannot imagine how happy i am to hear this. i loved simon lol

  • grapes9h5

    definitely can see him as Ramsay.

  • Tamtam77453

    He does seem to be perfect for theRamsey ,but i can’t help it this picture has me geekin out because of Jamie and Brienne.awwww

  • Kate

    He will make a perfect Ramsay! Though I did picture Ramsay to be rather large and overall extremely unpleasant in appearance, and Iwan certainly isn’t ugly. But I am completely okay with this.

  • Sunflowa

    yes please! loved him in misfits :)

  • ChromeE

    He is said to be cast as “Boy” and while some people believe this means he will be Ramsay Snow (I really wanted to believe this as well, he would be great in the role) he will be playing a character literally named “Boy” who is a pretty minor character, who appears at a rather important inn.
