'Game of Thrones' Fans Thinks that this Guy Would be a Huge Season 7 Character

'Game of Thrones' Fans Thinks that this Guy is a huge Season 7 Character
Game of Thrones filming has started up again, cast sightings in Belfast have peaked, and speculation about what's in store for Season 7 is quickly gathering momentum.

We already know that British legend Jim Broadbent will have a role in the next Season, but — as usual — showrunners are keeping tight-lipped about new characters and plot-lines at this early stage.

Still, that doesn't mean we can't speculate.

Introducing Devin Oliver, the singer for American band "I See Stars."

Remind you of anyone?

A few days ago, Oliver shared the following, cryptic post on Instagram.

Hmm.



It wasn't long before the speculation started.

The Instagram post eventually made its way to the r/gameofthrones subreddit, where the speculation reached fever-pitch.


So, is Devin Oliver going to be playing Rhaegar Targaryen — ie. Daenerys' deceased older brother — in Season 7?

Well, despite the fact that he's a singer rather than an actor, it's always possible. As many people pointed out on Reddit, we know from the books that Rhaegar enjoyed singing, and — given the Season 6 flashback that all but confirmed the R + L = J theory — it wouldn't be a surprise if we were to see more of Jon Snow's real dad in the coming Season.

Game of Thrones has a history of casting relatively unknown actors, too, so Oliver's lack of IMDb credits wouldn't necessarily be an obstacle.

Also, he really does look the part.

Still, nothing is confirmed at this stage.

Oliver might be joking, or he might simply be in Season 7 in a much minor role.
