Iwan Rheon seen on set of Game of Thrones-- role confirmed(?)

Note: Some possible spoilers for ADWD under the cut 

Someone on Tumblr (teawithconckers) saw them shooting a scene from Game of Thrones.

Anonymous asked: what did you see being filmed on game of thrones??? what was happening?

They were filming Theon being let down from a big torture cross thingy, there was a prosthetic wound on his foot that was sooo gross looking, had to remind myself it wasn’t real. And all the torture props were horrific, I hated Theon last season, but after seeing those, I think he’s getting his comeuppance. And I got shown round all the other sets, kept going I’ve seen that on tv!! Oh I remember a scene in here! Ya know the big massive table shaped liked Westeros - sure didn’t I touch that. Oh I’m so happy, it was so cool, I just wanna work for them.


I’M GOING TO CRY. I thought that was him, but then thought I was wrong cos his hair was different and I wasn’t very close to him and it was really really smoky on set. Oh my god, if that was him and I didn’t realise I’m going to have to cry. I thought it was him and then thought no, don’t be stupid, why would he be on Game of Thrones. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah it 99% was him, I’ve just googled it, he’s meant to be playing ‘Boy’ and that was who was on the call sheet that day. OH MY GAWWWWWWWWWWWWWD.

I didn’t see the torturing happening btw, though I think they were filming those scenes the next day. I saw him being taken down from this big cross thing he was tied up to by the boy. There were only 2 actors on set when I was there.

Anonymous asked: So the staff were a-ok with you seeing a scene they are probably trying to keep tightly under wraps? Did Iwan have long hair?

I had permission to be there, the set has very tight security, I wouldn’t have had a chance of even getting into the studios if I didn’t have permission. And they must have been alright with it because I watched about 3 hours worth of filming without anyone stopping me. Yeah, his hair was a lot longer than it is in Misfits, it covered his ears. (I’m going to go with 99.999% sure that it was him, though it’s probably a good thing I didn’t realise at the time as I probably would have exploded or something.)

So...if this is true (and I think it is) this confirms that that Iwan Rheon is playing none other than Ramsay Bolton and that they're moving Theon's torture into the third season.

And if Tumblr is any indication, expect Ramsay fangirls next season.

I'll fully fangirl his portrayal of Ramsay NOT Ramsay's actions as a character.

now we just need to get antonia on as one of the sand snakes and joe gilgun as someone else and I'll be happy in my own little cross fandom heaven.

Same. My money's on him being awesome.

This is also how I feel about my fangirling of Tate Langdon/Evan Peters. But the tumblr fangirls give it such a bad rep

They are gonna steal my Bolton stanning! The idiots

I adore Iwan, and I know he'll SLAY this role, but Ramsay is THE ACTUAL WORST :|

well we were right!

also not allowing my love for Iwan's extremely good looks taint my hate for Ramsay Bolton
I won't be able to handle tumblr when stills/footage emerges

does this mean Jeyne Poole?
phoe21 23rd-Jul-2012 12:17 am (UTC)
she probably won't show up until the ADWD timeline (and I have a feeling they'll find a way to re-introduce her before that with a Littlefinger brothel scene).
babysinclair 23rd-Jul-2012 01:41 am (UTC)
Not if they add another wedding

brokenseas 22nd-Jul-2012 11:44 pm (UTC)
Ikr? And turning invisible to spy on her. He was lovable to the audience but the kid needed serious help.
zizy 22nd-Jul-2012 11:47 pm (UTC)
I question the sanity of certain sections of fandoms.. reminds me of how many people loved Franklin on True Blood even though he was an insane rapist/kidnapper.
ncc_gqmf 23rd-Jul-2012 12:32 am (UTC)
OMG, I did not get the Franklin fangirls AT ALL. Especially the ones who sincerely shipped him/Tara. What the fuck.
obscurative 23rd-Jul-2012 12:44 am (UTC)
ugh i remember. lots of side-eye happening back then.
prettyfoot 22nd-Jul-2012 11:49 pm (UTC)
ita. He was so fucking creepy the first season, and I kinda didn't like how they made him all romantic in the later seasons.

At least in GoT, there is no way to make Ramsey romantic.
shangman 22nd-Jul-2012 11:53 pm (UTC)
I preferred him in the first series, he was much more interesting then. Although he wasn't hot at all. I guess people thought he was a bit vindicated since the woman he killed led him on and played him, but the creepy Kelly thing was gross. I never got how he changed so much so quickly, it was really weird. I guess once they realised that loads of people fancied Super!Simon they decided to make him like that immediately.
That being said, people will always fancy a hot guy even if he's mental. :c
ladysherlock 22nd-Jul-2012 11:55 pm (UTC)
He got the Chuck Bass switch from bad to good in s2 of Misfits. I always found it a bit jarring.
feathersandgold 23rd-Jul-2012 12:01 am (UTC)
yep! i never got over it tbh
thesilverymoon 23rd-Jul-2012 12:18 am (UTC)
In my defense, I fangirlled for him (and continue to do so) because I knew him from musical theater. So I'm not really that creepy, I swear.
sereniti_ii 23rd-Jul-2012 12:23 am (UTC)
I never saw him as hot in the first season (that changed) but he struck me as sympathetic. His speech pattern was very well done, choking his words out, etc. Also I liked how he never whined about he "didn't deserve" community service. idk - the bullied kid brings out my sympathies.
hrhobo 23rd-Jul-2012 12:34 am (UTC)
ikr i understood during 2nd season when we got to objectify his body, but he was a SUPER creep in the 1st season... and he almost raped kelly! wtf!
belkisa 23rd-Jul-2012 12:38 am (UTC)
ia he was so creepy and I couldn't like him in the later season either. I'm surprised how many fans forgot what a creep he was in the beginning of the show.
celtic_thistle 23rd-Jul-2012 12:54 am (UTC)
He WAS. People forgot that too easily.
goddess09807 23rd-Jul-2012 01:56 am (UTC)
As one of those who fangirled him a bit and shipped him with Alisha way before it was canon... I wasn't into woobifying him. I fully embraced his fuckedupness and I never thought he was all that mentally healthy.

And I know this is weird, but I still don't think Simon/Alisha was all that healthy either - and that is part of what I liked about them. Yes, they could be cute and adorable. But there was still this underlayer of darkness that really drew me into them. Simon never stopped being unhealthily obsessed with her. and as someone into (fictional!) dubcon, codependent people and a fair amount of angst it totally worked for me.
milkradio 23rd-Jul-2012 02:21 am (UTC)
Yeah, he was a big creep in first season D:
quietlyobsessed 23rd-Jul-2012 01:12 pm (UTC)
remember he accidentally killed her though. im not saying the guy didnt have issues and be seriously in the need of some therapy and social skills, but he wasn't exactly jack the ripper.

btw, icon love. i rewatched north and south today. unf that sexy voice of his.
asha_greyjoy 22nd-Jul-2012 11:41 pm (UTC)
im too attracted to him to be okay with iwan in this role

It's probably the more efficient.

lol ikr??
bodyline 22nd-Jul-2012 11:43 pm (UTC)
well shit, what an upgrade from Misfits this is for him. prayer circle for Antonia to also get some great roles as well plz :(
katiejo567 22nd-Jul-2012 11:52 pm (UTC)
Right? That's the end of her set visits. Is she aware that she leaked a massive spoiler? Someone should tell her to stop answering questions about it.
furato 23rd-Jul-2012 04:59 am (UTC)
Her tumblr is now deleted. She probably realized it's a no-no? Seriously, this fandom is not one you want to underestimate when it comes to digging up stuff. Twitter, tumblr, facebook, obscure news sites... if it's publicly accessible, someone will find it.
scientist 22nd-Jul-2012 11:43 pm (UTC)
omggggg yesssss
laserina 23rd-Jul-2012 12:48 am (UTC)
ok so I've seen Misfits and didn't think anything of him really - but I listened to this and I bought his EPs on amazon. I really like his voice!
shangri__la 23rd-Jul-2012 01:06 am (UTC)
I love that he's in GoT but that probably means his album/EP will be pushed back.

bizatchs 22nd-Jul-2012 11:43 pm (UTC)
Lol that his post-Misfits career is already better than Robert Sheehan's
isthisdesire 23rd-Jul-2012 12:43 am (UTC)
but he was going to be a STAH, DARHLING
