Actor Richard, from Renfrewshire, Scotland, made a name for himself as a leading man in Sky Atlantic’s sex-filled fantasy epic Game Of Thrones.
He was born on June 18, 1986, and started doing theatre when he was 11 to overcome his shyness.

Richard became a household name playing Rob Stark in the fantasy series Game of Thrones.
He starred in the show from 2011 to 2013 and is credited in 21 episodes of the HBO drama.
Richard said at the time of his filming: “Sometimes it can be a real challenge when you’re up to your knees in freezing cold mud, snow or ice, you’re wearing seven layers of
armour and leather, you’re on a horse and your feet are wet.
“But it ties back to what Robb would be doing — he’s experiencing the same things.”
