Game of Thrones actor Iwan Rheon, who played the role of Ramsay Bolton in the HBO show, will now star as Adolf Hitler. The actor was cast in a TV show of Sky Arts called Urban Myths.
Rheon’s previous character as Ramsay Bolton is considered as the most hated TV villain. The Atlantic dubbed the bastard son of Roose Bolton as the worst character on TV. He is also compared to Hannibal Lecter, Walter White, and Joffrey Baratheon.
Game of Thrones’ Ramsay Bolton, the Worst Villain on TV
For one, he spread hate and sadism on Game of Thrones for four seasons. One memorable moment of his brutality was when he sexually assaulted Sansa Stark on the night of their wedding. Ramsay even forced Theon (Alfie Allen) to watch the brutal rape.
Moreover, he also cut off Theon’s manhood in the show. Fans were happy to see him dead in Season 6 in the episode Battle of the Bastards. It can be recalled that Sansa fed him to the dogs.
Iwan Rheon as Adolf Hitler
Rheon will not stop playing villainous characters. The 31-year-old actor from Welsh will be portraying the role of Adolf Hitler in Adolf the Artist, a TV show that is part of Urban Myths. The show is a collection of stories which has been transferred from generations to generations that it became a legend.
The actor will show Adolf Hitler in his bohemian art days. He will portray the man before he became a dictator and killed millions of people. Rheon said in an interview with Observer that Ramsay Bolton is still worse than the Nazi leader. He even noted that his former character and Hitler could have been friends.
“The Hitler that I play is way before he was politically motivated or anything,” he said. “So he’s just a strange young man who really wanted to be an artist as opposed to the monster that we’ve come to know through history.” Iwan Rheon will star in Urban Myths alongside Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint. He will play as “Hitler’s friend.”
