If you haven’t tuned into the thrilling Netflix series, Bodyguard, do yourself a favor and start watching it immediately. Richard Madden, best known for his character Rob Stark‘s demise in the “Blood Wedding” episode in Game of Thrones, is the PTS-afflicted David Budd, a war veteran assigned to protect Great Britain’s powerful Home Secretary Julia Montague. Although married, Budd begins an affair with his sexy boss played by the statuesque Keeley Hawe. Already a huge hit overseas, Netflix brought the series to our shores last month. We’re obsessed, both with the cat-and-mouse storyline and the clandestine couple who can’t seem to keep their hands off each other.

In our deeper search for all things Bodyguard, we discovered Richard Madden’s hilarious instagram account which is packed with behind the scenes shots of him and his co-star, Hawes, relaxing on set. Despite the blood and gore on the show, these images remind us to breathe and remember It’s. Not. Real. Enjoy Madden’s striking photos.
