Why is young Eddard Stark from season 6 blonde? I thought in Game of thrones universe most Starks have black hair, particularly Ned has black hair mentioned in books.

When I saw a young blonde dude (Robert Aramayo) characterized as Ned Stark I was confused.

    We could make a long list of things in the TV series that do not match the books. But let's not. – GEdgar Aug 20 '17 at 23:53
  • Can we please stop misusing books tag in show only questions? And Ned's hair in books is just dark (Which can be brown), not black. – Aegon Aug 21 '17 at 6:36
  • Arya and Jon take after Eddard as per books, And both of them have brown hair, which means Eddard had brown hair, not black – Aegon Aug 21 '17 at 6:39

    And hair color can change while one grows up. A lot. – Annatar Aug 21 '17 at 7:40

    @Annatar Indeed. Many kids with light hair have their hair darken naturally as they grow up – Aegon Aug 21 '17 at 8:03

Young Ned Stark's hair colour matches old Ned Stark. You're making far too much of this.
