'Game Of Thrones' Season 7 Air Date, Spoilers & News: Jon Snow's Father Rhaegar Targaryen Has Been Cast?

Could "Game of Thrones" Season 7 feature Jon Snow's father and Daenery's brother, Rhaegar Targaryen, in a series of flashbacks? Speculations about the character's appearance have been surfacing based on an unconfirmed photo. The character is not a major part of the show, but he is a quite a significant part of the story of Jon Snow's origin.

Devin Oliver, who leads the rock band I See Stars, posted a photo on his Instagram where he's dressed and made up like the Targaryen royalty. "I may or may not have made an appearance in Game of Thrones Season 7," the rock star wrote in the captions, which fans took to mean as a hint he's going to be in the upcoming season.

Uproxx notes that "Game of Thrones" have had musicians doing cameos in past episodes, which makes Devin Oliver's casting as Rhaeger Targayen possible. Further to this, Oliver already has that distinct Targaryen feature, the blonde hair, and the singer has striking physical similarities to Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow. Rhaeger was also characterized in "Game of Thrones" as someone who loved singing, thus the character and Devin Oliver already have plenty of things in common with each other.

However, Cinema Blend cautions that this might be yet another unfounded casting rumor that commonly sparks among "Game of Thrones" fans. In early September, the fandom was actually gushing over the supposed casting of Angela Lansbury in the series. However, the actress' representatives have denied this, per Entertainment Weekly.

Fans are expecting that Rhaegan Targaryen will appear in "Game of Thrones" Season 7 because the previous season opened up the possibility when it featured how Jon Snow was born. Meanwhile, as producers of the series remain secretive about this storyline, Devin Oliver continues to tease fans on his social media accounts.
