Despite his minor role so far, fans are swooning over the hunky star, posting throwback footage of him from popular Aussie shows like Blue Water High, The Sleepover Club, Underbelly, Packed To The Rafters  and Silversun on social media. 

‘You know House of the Dragon’s screen writing was effectively done when you have huge crush on Ser Harwin Strong who has less than 2 mins of screen time,’ one fan tweeted.

‘Just found out that Ryan Corr is the guy i’ve had a crush on from The Sleepover Club back in my Disney channel tween days lol,’ another wrote.

’19 years later and im here crushing on him again bc of Harwin Strong!’

Another wrote: ‘Great seeing more of Ryan Corr as Harwin Strong but now that I realised he was Sheng on Silversun, that theme song is going to play in my head every time I see him and I love that.’

Born in Melbourne, Corr began his acting career in his teens, making his TV debut in the 2003 series The Sleepover Club as Matthew McDougal, the leader of the M&Ms boys club.

He then went on to star in Silversun as Sheng Zammett in 2004, before making a guest appearance on Neighbours.

One of Corr’s best-known credits was in the surf teen drama series Blue Water High, where he starred as Eric who had blond frosted hair.

He joined the cast of popular drama Packed to the Rafters in 2009, and later starred in several episodes of 2010 crime drama Underbelly: The Golden Mile.

However, Corr’s career was in jeopardy in May 2014 when he was found with 0.26 grams of heroin in a Bondi alleyway.

The promising young actor pleaded guilty to possession of the illegal substance in September that year, telling the court he was in a ‘vulnerable state’ after his beloved grandfather was left in a coma following a heart attack.

He told the court he went to a hotel where a man handed him a bag of heroin and said, ‘Here, have this, you’ll feel better.’ 

Corr clarified he had never taken the drug and was arrested before he got the chance to use it. He was placed on a 12-month good behaviour bond with no conviction recorded.

In 2022, Corr reached an acting milestone after it was announced he’d been cast in House of the Dragon. 

The HBO series, which premiere on streaming service Binge on August 22, the action-fantasy series is his first step into event television on a global scale.

‘When I first wanted to be an actor as a young boy, you know, these are the sort of [roles] you dream of. So to be here, you have to pinch yourself,’ he told New Idea previously. 

‘I was like a schoolboy excited about it when I found out about it [and] I was like an excited school boy when I rocked up on set.’

His character is described as a ‘knight from House Strong, heir to Harrenhal’ and the ‘strongest man in the Seven Kingdoms’. 

The storyline of the prequel will focus on House Targaryen and their reign in Westeros 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones.  

Another Australian, Milly Alcock, is also featured in the recurring cast. She portrays a young Rhaenyra Targaryen.

House of the Dragon also features Emma D’Arcy as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, Matt Smith as Prince Daemon Targaryen, Steve Toussaint as Lord Corlys Velaryon, Oliva Cooke as Alicent Hightower and Rhys Ifans as Otto Hightower.
