While playing Robb Stark on Game of Thrones was Scottish actor Richard Madden's international breakout role, the 26-year-old actor already has an impressive resume.

Richard joined the Paisley Arts Centre's youth theater program at age 11, and quickly started getting roles. His first was as Andy in the film Complicity, quickly followed by the lead role, Sebastian Simpkins, in BBC children's comedy show Barmy Aunt Boomerang. He then went to the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Music, while also doing theater work, including playing Romeo in Romeo and Juliet at the Globe Theatre. That was followed by several more screen roles, and then came Game of Thrones!

Of course, now that Robb Stark is down a head, Richard is out of a job. But don't worry, he's already booked his next gig as Prince Charming in Kenneth Branagh's big screen adaptation of Cinderella.

Fun Facts:

1. He first joined a theater group to help get over his shyness.

2. He's been dating Doctor Who star Jenna-Louise Coleman since 2011.

3. His mother is a classroom assistant, and his father is in the fire service.
