10. Honorable Mention: Petyr Baelish (Aidan Gillen)
While not particularly to our tastes with that goatee, we’ll always remember Aidan Gillen as the super-cool Stuart Jones on the original, and best, U.K. version of Queer as Folk. And for that, even “Littlefinger” deserves a mention.
9. Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen)
Obviously we’re not talking about “Reek”, but about the younger, prouder Theon. He was mean back then, but you can’t deny his good looks.
8. Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen)
This one’s definitely a matter of taste – do you like them old(er) and wise? Plus, let’s not forget the British accent, and his courage and endless love (even if that love is for a blonde girl). He’s the perfect choice for those who like old-school, valiant men.
7. Grey Worm (Jacob Anderson)
Always eager to serve, a courageous warrior but with a soft and even shy side. He DOES have a certain “problem” in the sexual department, though.
6. The First Daario Naharis (Ed Skrein)
That hair gives him a bit of a Fabio romance-book-cover buzz, but you can’t deny he was handsome. And then, Skrein left and was unceremoniously replaced with a bearded, hairy – and boring version of Daario. Too bad…
5. Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau)
At first he was a mean, child-killing incestuous bastard. Then he turned into a charming hero (sort of). Then he raped his sister. Then he was a hero again (sort of)… feeling confused? Indeed. At least he has great hair.
4. Robb Stark (Richard Madden)
Who could resist the brave, beautiful future king of the North? Just look into those beautiful eyes… And then – The Red Wedding happened. Oh well.
3. Loras Tyrell (Finn Jones)
OK so this is a complicated one: there are better looking guys on GoT. And – yes, I’m gonna say it – his face looks kind of chubby. But you have to give him points for being gay, so we did.
2. Ramsay Snow, now Bolton (Iwan Rheon)
Yes, yes, he’s a mean bastard (no pun intended). And he’s kind of insane. And cruel. But come on, look at those abs!
1. Jon Snow (Kit Harington)
We all saw this coming, right? They even [lovingly] mock him on the show for being beautiful. And he’s not just good looking – he’s brave, he’s naive, he seeks the peace (when he’s not slaughtering his enemies), and apparently he’s good with his tongue. Will we get him back, after Season 5’s tragedy? We’re holding our fingers.
The boys having fun. Just ’cause we love ya.
