He may be in the middle of a bloody war as Robb Stark on Game of Thrones, but when it comes to real life, Richard seems to take part in your normal, run-of-the-mill activities.

While it took us a minute to recognize him out of fur and armor, the 26-year-old actor was seen out and about in Venice Beach, California yesterday (April 24), chatting on his phone and hanging with some friends. That's it? No ambushing other camps or helping saw people's legs off? Sigh.

Nonetheless, whether he's chilling in a comfy shirt and sunglasses in Cali, or trying to kill King Joffrey on Game of Thrones, this man is a straight up stud.

Catch the next episode of Game of Thrones on Sunday, April 29 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
