And they were finally proven to be super sleuths when the actor, who Archers fans will know best as Ambridge’s own Chris Carter, popped up in Bran’s visions in the series seven finale. It was confirmed that Rhaegar had indeed married Lyanna, and that she’d given birth to their son, Jon, real name Aegon Targaryen.
It’s also interesting to now he’s got another minor connection to Thrones. Just like Joe Dempsie (Gendry) and Hannah Murray (Gilly), Scolding has previously appeared in Skins.

He made quite the impression but we hope that’s not how Rhaegar seduced Lyanna Stark…
