Where do we begin?
You probably remember Richard Madden as Robb Stark from Game Of Thrones or else Sergeant David Budd in the BBC Thriller series Bodyguard. And if you remember him, you probably remember that he's absolutely gorgeous.
A recent selfie that Madden posted of himself at Topanga State Park in Los Angeles, California is gaining some attention because it is—well-smokin' hot.
And the internet is nothing if not consistently thirsty.
Rather than climbing a mountain, folks had some other ideas about how to interact with Madden at Topanga State Park.
Richard Madden is asking us to climb him, right? https://t.co/xqJanB2x6g— Jarett Wieselman (@Jarett Wieselman)1582064537.0

Madden is no stranger to posting absolutely smoldering photos of himself.
But there's something about the perfectly quaffed hair with the little streak of blonde, the square jaw and the stubble/chest hair combo that just makes people go that much crazier.

The 33 year-old Scottish actor also recently appeared in the Academy Award-nominated film 1917 and will star as Ikaris in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film The Eternals.

Perhaps he will turn up shirtless in one of those films, and then the shirtless Madden fandom will ascend.
Okay but a calendar of a shirtless Richard Madden in kilts... https://t.co/DETr3qfgnc— Randi 🏴🇮🇪 (@Randi 🏴🇮🇪)1580581293.0
