Which Game of Thrones Star Didn’t Know His Real First Name Until He Was 11?

Being kept in the dark about major secrets is a familiar fate for many Game of Thrones characters, but did you know that one of the show’s actors didn't know his real first name until he was 11 years old?

Yeah, you read that right! This actor, who still goes by his nickname, didn't find out his official first name for more than a decade. He says there’s no particular reason why; apparently his parents just realized he preferred the nickname and never thought to clarify.

So, which actor is it? We'll give you a hint: On the show, his dad kept a secret from him, too, and it was much bigger than a simple question of first names.
