"Did you tire of your paramour on the road?"
“Never. We share too much.”
Tywin, Tygett, Kevan, Gerion, and Genna of House Lannister.
“He is a sweet boy, quick to laugh, easy to love. Let him grow up with the young princes, let him become their friend as Robert became mine.”
I’m not dead either.
"Good men and bad, heroes and villains, men of honor, liars, cravens, brutes … we have plenty, as do you."
and the ghost in Harrenhal.
Sure, I like doing this sort of thing. :) Since the definition of “main character” is complicated in this series, I’m just going list major houses, which includes most of the POV characters. I’m including show ages when I know them (bolded when they’ve been stated on screen).

Other POV characters without stated ages include Jon Connington, Arys Oakheart, and Areo Hotah. I’d estimate Jon to be in his early 40s, Arys in his 20s, and Areo in his mid/late-40s.
Note GoT ages when not spoken onscreen are calculated based on Robert’s Rebellion ending 17 years before S1E1 (and other things such as Cersei’s stated age at her marriage). This makes Joffrey’s age kind of impossible, but they said it on screen so what can you do? BTW, if someone caught a show-stated age I missed (the GoT wiki doesn’t count, dialogue only), please let me know.
Also, if anyone considers anyone else a main character or just wants to know someone’s age, let me know and I’ll add them. :)
