Iwan Rheon, who plays sadistic villain Ramsay Bolton on Game of Thrones, knows his character is a scumbag who deserves to die a “nasty” death — he’s admitted as much in the past. And as hard as it is to separate Rheon from Ramsay (lord knows I’d run the other way if I ever saw him on the street), the actor wants you to know he’s actually a pretty cool dude IRL.
In a new video filmed for Red Nose Day — an annual charity event that raises money for children in need — Rheon joins fellow typecast villains Danny Trejo and Steve Buscemi for a hilarious song about how they’re “gentle as a baby duck.” Rheon, for his part, acknowledges that he’s the “craziest of crazies” onscreen, but when he’s not cutting off men’s penises before your eyes, he’s actually “baking cakes and planting daisies.” Awww.
The most surprising part of the vid (other than Ellie Kemper’s cute cameo) might be that Rheon actually has a hella fine singing voice. Who knew?!
