If there's one character in the "Game Of Thrones" series that is long past due for an onscreen appearance, that would probably be Rhaegar Targaryen. And it looks like fans are in for a treat as the said role might be introduced in Season 7.
Recently, "Game Of Thrones" fans abuzz about a photo shared on Instagram that possibly reveals the person who might play the role of Rhaegar Targaryen.
Devin Oliver, singer of the band I See Stars, shared a photo of him with a bow and arrow plus his notable blond hair in a bun. But looks aside, the cryptic message that comes along with it is what led fans to speculate that he could possibly be the highly anticipated Rhaegar Targaryen. In the said photo, the 24-year-old singer captioned it with: "I may or may not have made an appearance in Game Of Thrones season 7."

And it looks like fans are in unison about the idea. One fan wrote on Reddit: “Whoa. I can totally see him as Rhaegar, he’s quite good looking and he’s a singer, so maybe we’ll hear Rhaegar sing?” Another one added: “Honestly, I think he looks astonishingly like Kit. That chin and the eyes. I almost feel like if he is Rhaegar it was a very deliberate and carefully researched cast choice.”
Meanwhile, one fan even noted that casting Oliver would make sense because Rhaegar Targaryenn is known for his beautiful singing which was actually mentioned a few times on the show. “He did sing a song at Harrenhall that brought tears to Lyanna’s eyes, wouldn’t be surprised if that’s included in the show.” the fan wrote.
To recall, Rhaegar Targaryenn is Daenerys’ and Viserys’older brother. He is also the father of Jon Snow. His character is described as someone musical and dreamy, with flowing blond locks and violet eyes. With that, many fans firmly believe that Oliver is a perfect match for the role.
As of this writing, there has been no confirmation about the said rumor. But fans seem eager to see Devin Oliver as Rhaegar Targaryenn in “Game Of Thrones” Season 7. If that will be case, fans are sure to swoon over his dream-like character.
