Anonymous asked you:
do you know how old Rhaegar was when he died? because people keep fancasting old actors for him. i always thought he would’ve been in his early twenties. or im might be wrong.
I checked with the wiki to be sure since I always assumed he was in his midtwenties, and apparently he was twenty-four when he died. I agree he shouldn’t be too old or it would mess with chronology, but I think anything thirtyish and under would be alright for Rhaegar. Older than that and then it would stretch the believability of him and Dany being siblings. Of course siblings can be very far apart in age, but it would just be so odd if he were middle-aged by the time she were born. And I think there is a certain youthful quality to Rhaegar that casting a forty year old would ruin.
