Tommen Baratheon is played by 16-year old Dean-Charles Chapman in the HBO series Game of Thrones.
And if you think that little Tommen who you remembered only from the Battle of Blackwater Bay has undergone a tremendous growth spurt like Bran since the first season, think again.
For Seasons One and Two, Tommen was played by Callum Wharry. This kid.
Tommen Baratheon did not appear in Season Three. The role was taken over by Dean-Charles Chapman from Season Four. But that is not the first time you’ve seen him on this show.
Chapman was also cast as Martyn Lannister, Tywin Lannister’s nephew who was held hostage by Robb Stark’s army. Remember this blink-and-miss scene from S3E03, "Walk of Punishment"?
Martyn Lannister is Kevan Lannister’s son. He along with his brother Willem is taken captive by Edmure Tully after the Battle of the Stone Mill (not shown in the series). Also, like every other character we start to adore, these two kids are killed by Lord Rickard Karstark and his men out of mounting resentment for not punishing Jaime Lannister, who killed Lord Karstark’s son.
So long story short, Dean-Charles Chapman played two characters on the show. Also, given House Lannister's penchant for loving their family a little too much, it is quite logical that two characters from the same House would look uncannily similar. How neat is that?
