Iwan Rheon (pronounced EE-wan REE-on) is a Welsh actor and musician.

Rheon had a lead role in Misfits. He is in the upcoming movies Wasteland and Libertador. He also had a recurring role in the first and second seasons of Simon Amstell's sitcom Grandma's House as Simon's self-involved boyfriend, Ben.

He was cast for the third season of Game of Thrones in the role of Ramsay Snow. He was announced in the role on July 20, 2012, though the character was initially referred only as "Boy", to keep his identity secret.[1]

In the DVD commentary for Season 3 episode 3 "Walk of Punishment", executive producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss revealed that Iwan was actually their runner-up second choice to play Jon Snow, one of the main heroes of the story, but lost to Kit Harington. In many ways, Ramsay Snow is a foil to Jon Snow: just as the Boltons are the "bad" counterpart to the "good" Starks in the North, both of them are the bastard sons of the head of their Houses. Rheon and Harington are close friends in real life.

Bryan Cogman later said that when Benioff and Weiss conceived the show's version of Ramsay, Rheon was their first and only choice for the role.[2]

He was promoted to starring cast member for the fourth season, and his name was added to the opening credits as of "The Lion and the Rose".

Rheon reprised his role as Ramsay in Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series, along with Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, and Natalie Dormer.

In 2015, he co-starred in the TV series Residue alongside Natalia Tena (Osha from Game of Thrones).
