Gethin Anthony, Game of Thrones
In the War of Five Kings, Renly Baratheon appears to be the most powerful, at least on the popular front.
On HBO's Game of Thrones (Sundays, 9/8c), Gethin Anthony plays young Renly, who's become quite the charismatic young leader in the drama's second season.

"He's had to take on a lot of responsibility. He's had to become more politically strategic with warfare and understanding armies."
"It's all fallen on me," says Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) in Episode 2 of Game of Thrones' sizzling second season.
