There’s less than a day remaining for the epic battle in the North between Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton and the fans are not able to contain their excitement. However, it’s not just the fans who are excited for the Battle of the Bastards. Even the cast members have been eagerly waiting for the battle and Iwan Rheon, who plays Ramsay Bolton is among those stars. In an interview with EW, Iwan Rheon teased about the big face-off between his character Ramsay Bolton and Jon Snow. Iwan revealed that he had always wanted to see a clash between his character Ramsay and Jon Snow.
“Anyone who has asked me, ‘Who would you like Ramsay to meet?’ My answer has always been, ‘Jon Snow,’” Rheon says. “He’s the antithesis of Ramsay. They’re almost a yin and a yang. They both come from such a similar place yet they’re so different. And even though they’re enemies, they’ve both risen so far as bastards, which is almost incomprehensible, and now they’re both here facing each other. They couldn’t be any more different, yet more similar.”
Both of them are bastard born and they had to face lot of issues while growing up. We know that Jon was never accepted by Catelyn Stark and things were no different for Ramsay. One way or the other, they were constantly reminded that they were bastards but now things have turned around for both of them. Ramsay is leading the Bolton army, while Jon is leading the Starks. Both of them have risen to the top and at stake is Winterfell and the entire North and it’s one battle that will have a huge impact on the future of Westeros.
We hope that Jon Snow defeats Ramsay Bolton, but this is Game of Thrones and we just can’t take things for granted in this show. The episode airs at 9 PM on HBO. Till then you can take a look at all the epic events that happened in Game of Thrones’s 9th episodes or the eye-popping numbers that are involved in the biggest battle in Game of Thrones till date.
