He was tall and beautiful, with dark indigo eyes and the silver hair of House Targaryen, worn long. Daenerys Targaryen was compared to him as a compliment. Cersei is said to have had a feelings for him.
This is how he was illustrated, Rhaegar Targaryen was the eldest son of King Aerys II Targaryen. Of course expectations were high as to how he would be depicted in the series.
Rhaegar didn’t make any appearance in Game of Thrones until the last episode of season 7. But fans were disappointed.
It seemed Rhaegar has recycled his younger brother Viserys wig. And Viserys already being a hated character didn’t help this much. It seemed that we waited 7 seasons to see grown up version of Viserys. There is nothing wrong with the actor Wilf Scolding playing Rhaegar here, but can you please make him not look like a replica of Viserys?
