Richard Madden is a Scottish film, stage, and television actor. He is known for portraying Robb Stark in the HBO series Game of Thrones.

Richard grew up in Elderslie, Scotland. His mother, Pat, is a classroom assistant, and his father, Richard, is in the fire service. He has two sisters, Cara and Lauren.

His mother’s maiden name is said to be Mulholland. Both Madden and Mulholland are often Irish surnames.

At the age of eleven, Richard joined Paisley Arts Centre’s youth theatre programme to help overcome his shyness. He was soon cast as young Andy in the film adaptation of Iain Banks’ Complicity, which he followed by playing a lead role, Sebastian, in the television series Barmy Aunt Boomerang.

    Madden is also an Irish surname but I’m not going to claim him as Irish because of his surname.
