Iwan Rheon – Is There Anything He Can’t Do?

Source: Showmasters Birmingham

From his humble Welsh beginnings in school dramatic productions, Iwan has made a huge name for himself. Playing villains and heroes, and a little bit of everything in between, Iwan has shown the world his versatility as an actor. 


Also a singer and musician, he acted in several musicals in his youth, studying at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and earning himself several award nominations, and an Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical in 2010. 


In 2009, Iwan graced us with his onscreen presence in sci-fi show Misfits, playing shy and unassuming Simon Bellamy. His sweet performance earned him a huge fan following. Iwan appeared in three series before sacrificing himself to save one of his beloved ill-fated group. And we may never get over it. 


After his departure from Misfits, Iwan appeared in films such as The Rise (2012) and TV movie Under Milk Wood (2013) before winning the role of terrifying Ramsay Bolton (formerly Snow) in Game of Thrones. 


Starting in series three, Ramsay cut himself a bloody path across the Seven Kingdoms during his reign on the show, murdering countless enemies, including some beloved characters.


 A far cry from the days of sweet, invisible, time-travelling Simon, Ramsay will stay with Game of Thrones fans for a long time. I’m sure wildlife all over Britain was disturbed when he finally met his demise and the whole world cheered. 


Alongside Game of Thrones, Iwan also starred in TV series Vicious (2013-16) alongside Sir Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi. He joined the cast of Inhumans in 2017, and also has several upcoming projects. Iwan is a must-meet guest.
