Richard Madden at ‘Games of Thrones’ Premiere

Posted on March 19, 2013

Oh, well done, King Robb.


Richard Madden attends the HBO’s third season premiere of ‘Game of Thrones’ in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

We’re referring to your spectacularly curly locks, of course. That is some serious fucking hair. The suit? Enh. It fits well  – and we’re enjoying the rare sight of a slim man in a tailored suit, sporting a full beard and a lion’s mane of hair. But we think it’s a very nice first job interview suit and not all that great for a premiere red carpet. You’re young, hot, at a career high, and slim. Style-wise, you can do better than this.

Still, he does look cute as hell, does he not? We’re forgiving the neckbeard because we assume it’s for filming.

      I am still waiting for
      Jaqen H’ghar….swoooooonnnn

      • Sobaika

        That man was delicious. Too bad his face is different :(

        • Funkykatt

          They’ll have to bring him back in his original form, I am sure somehow in Bravos, he can be reincarnated. Gosh, Bravos has the be the best place ever!

          • Kim Baker Vidas Davey-Irvin

            but in braavos, he’d come back as syrio forel!

            • Funkykatt

              I have not read the stories so I had to look that up! It doesn’t really, all they need to do is have him talk to the camera as if he’s talking to us and give us that sly smile. that can be episode one. And then a spin-off show of his own.

    • Jecca2244

      Him and Kit Harrington in one room must equate to heaven.

    • MilaXX

      I don’t know if I want to give a pass to all that bad facial hair on someone who has clearly spent a minute or achieving the perfect superman S curl in his hair. Groom for the RC and let the on set makeup artist render you scraggly for filming.

    • Deitra S.

      Shut UP! And with that slight gray tinge to that front curl! SWOON!

      • mshesterp

        Totally missed the tinge! That is SPECTACULARLY sculpted hair. Adorable.

      • gabbilevy

        Couldn’t stop staring at that little bitty bit of gray. YUM!

        Didn’t even notice the suit, other than to be slightly annoyed that he was wearing anything at all.

      • hyperionic

        Um isn’t that hair wax?

        • Deitra S.

          Hmmm, I don’t think so. In this interview from a year ago you can see the ghost of it, so it would stand to reason that it’s become more prominent. Plus, if anyone hasn’t heard his natural accent, you’re missing out:

    • jetpackdino

      I can’t stand all the facial hair. Unless Neanderthal Chic is a trend of which I am unaware, he should shave.

    • deathandthestrawberry

      All hail, King of the North!

    • mmc2315

      Swoon! That hair! My fingers! In that!

      • Coolekat

        I read a clip somewhere that said Jaime was a Nordic Javier Bardem.

    • Sobaika

      The things I would do to this man…

    • Joanna Bitsy Carver

      The Kingslayer, on the other hand, looked like a bank teller.

    • anotherkate

      I will never forgive a neckbeard. He’s cute though, no doubt about it.

    • nannypoo

      I don’t like anything hair-related here.

    • bookish

      He’s gorgeous but that neckbeard is a serious turn off. I’m hoping you’re right and it’s just because of filming.

    • Jaeda Laurez

      See, this is what happens when you don’t fight your curls. Take note, Justin Timberlake, because that Dominican blowout you’ve been sporting lately is not the move.

    • kirkyo

      I like this suit & tie combo very much. The fit is perfect and he dressed it up with a tie pin, something I haven’t seen in like 25 years.

    • Carly Warnock

      That is a serious neckbeard. I couldn’t move my eyes away from it. Handsome though.

    • formerlyAnon

      It’s such a treat to see someone young-ish wearing a suit well – no oddities or sloppy bits leaping out at one – that I am perfectly happy with a dull job interview suit.

    • marlie

      He looks great, and I can’t wait for GoT. I’d be happier if he’d worn a more interesting tie, though.

    • Imasewsure

      It’s either a Superman S, a modified Marcelle wave or he’s doing a full on Douglas Fairbanks but still the hair makes me smile

    • Nancy Cozzi

      He is a beautiful man. Perfectly styled. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him at an event not dressed well. I do believe the beard is for a project he is doing.

    • luciaphile

      He needs to shave his neck. Still loving the GoT pics.

    • Jess

      Seems the neckbeard is indeed for a role – just saw that he’s starting work on a TV movie for Discovery about gold rushers in 1890s Yukon territory. That beard is probably going to get worse before it gets better…

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      I’m in love with the tie bar! (clasp? pin? jewelry?) Whatever it’s called I fully endorse its comeback. The curls are cute too.

    • Puckndc

      nope…no forgiveness for neck hair…yuck!

    • gdougs

      Read the title as Rachel Maddow and was very confused for a second..

    • stubbornthoughts

      I would buy whatever he’s selling.

    • Pterodactyl111

      The King in the North!!

    • Diane Furstenberg

      He needs to get inside me – sorry, I am shameless.

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      How awesome would it be if he gave an Aragorn-like “Men of the North” speech this season? You have it in you Stark! Make it happen!

    • Susan Bullard Mayer

      Ack, neck beard! Ruins the look for me!

    • MarkS

      How has no one picked up on the lack of a belt? Are we all distracted by the hair/neck beard?

      Men have few accessories and a suit without a belt looks odd and incomplete.

    • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

      EEEW. If my teddy bear with his hairy neck and his beady blue marble eyes came to life and wore a suit and smiled at me, this would be it. I know this man is handsome and probably a lovely human being but OMG that hairy neck is all I can see.

    • BookishBren

      I am a complete and utter sucker for a Scottish accent.

      I am hiding that from my English partner. He thinks I am all about his accent. haha

    • bd73

      blue suit to bring out his eyes? i’m happy all-around. you go, young wolf!

    • littlemissstrange


      Less than two weeks now. I am giddy as a fucking schoolgirl.

    • littlemissstrange

      Although I have to admit he does look a bit like an Ewok. Not a particularly sexy look to me. But I’ll take Jon Snow or whatever the fuck he likes to call himself in the real world, that man is sex on legs.

      • Susan Collier

        You know nothing, Jon Snow.

    • librarygrrl64

      He has AMAZING hair! I want it!

    • kathrineb

      Love the curls!

    • lalahartma

      That curly q is too precious to be attractive.
