Iwan Rheon, who played the role of Ramsay Bolton in the TV series 'Game of Thrones' will play the role as a young Adolf Hitler in an upcoming British TV drama 'Adolf the Artist'. One of the main cast is Rupert Grint, who played as Ron Weasley on the fantasy movie series 'Harry Potter'.

The Adolf Hitler: My Childhood Friend served as an inspiration for the project. Rupert Grint will play as August Kubizek, Adolf Hitler's room-mate and closest friend when they're in their late teenage years.

The life of Adolf Hitler has been portrayed on movies and shows many times. But this new project will show the different point of view in his younger life in the face of its new actor Iwan Rheon. The story and tale before Hilter became known to the world will be told in the story. The series will let the viewers see Hitler's life when his only dream was to become an artist.

There is still too much to learn about the British TV movie. Reports suggest that the 'Adolf the Artist'  has a comedy theme showing a young Adolf Hitler as he develops his artistic skill. He will travel to Vienna, hoping he can enter the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts. Obviously, the story of the TV movie will be based on the most accurate history facts about the young Adolf.

The film, which is directed by Dan Zeff, completed the filming last year. Some clips are now posted on many sites in the internet. Schedule of the premiere date of the project has not been confirmed by the filmmakers.

Game of Thrones fans are probably not surprised when Iwan Rheon was announced to play the role of Adolf Hitler in the new project. The actor jokingly said in an interview that he is 'typecast' already. Other details on the project 'Adolf the Artist' are expected to be released next year.
