Though we've heard his name for years, we've been waiting several seasons for a real look at Rhaegar Targaryen, and the Game of Thrones season seven finale finally showed his face. The momentous reveal is also in — wait for it — the wedding scene between Rhaegar and Lyanna Stark, a wedding we didn't even know had happened until earlier this season.

Rhaegar is played by actor Wilf Scolding, who previously appeared in UK series Skins and Doctors. Scolding's name was actually leaked as part of the recent cyberattack on HBO, but looking at the pictures of Scolding and the actor's pictures of himself on Instagram make it pretty clear that he is Rhaegar.
