Top 10 reasons to crush on 'Game of Thrones' Podrick Payne

The once shy cupbearer, want-to-be-knight, and loyal-beyond-belief Podrick Payne (played by Daniel Portman) has grown into quite an attractive young man.  While Tyrion was the first to see, and perhaps exploit his gifts and kindness, Pod has grown to be a trusted ally and friend to many people in Westeros and on the road. Humble and gentle, but also able to power through fear and be a force to be reckoned with. His intelligence is palpable, and though he flaunts nothing, he provides the right information at the proper time due to his studies and general powers of observation. While Pod’s first battle ended with him being a hero who saved Tyrion by spearing Ser Mandon Moore through the head, his road to being fully battle-ready has had its bumps.  And given his limited experience with women, his prowess is something noteworthy.  Just hope he isn’t killed off, at least not too soon.
