Aussies on the internet are realising that Ser Harwin Strong from House of the Dragon was Eric from Blue Water High and they are losing their marbles.

If there are two things we love here at Junkee, it’s where-are-they-nows and Aussie actors in big overseas productions. Thus, it’s our pleasure to inform you that Ser Harwin Strong, a knight in House of the Dragon, is none other than beloved Australian actor Ryan Corr.

Corr is a pretty seasoned Aussie actor. His credits range from the Australian cult sci-fi series Silversun to Underbelly and Packed to the Rafters.

However, Aussie House of the Dragon fans are losing their minds over the fact that Corr used to play Eric in Blue Water High. Yes, it’s true Harwin “Breakbones” Strong is played by the actor who once sported frosted tips in Blue Water High.

Corr’s turn as Ser Harwin Strong has thirsty House of the Dragon fans all over the world swooning, despite his relatively minor role so far. But this is far from the first time Ryan Corr has won hearts. In fact, he’s been doing it for three decades.

The Melbourne actor had tweens Nationwide twirling their hair back in 2003 when he was Matthew McDougal in the iconic teen series, The Sleepover Club. Then again as Sheng in Silversun in 2004 and again as Eric in Blue Water High in 2006.

Throughout the 2010s, Corr continued his reign as a humbly dependable Aussie TV heartthrob with roles in staples like Underbelly, Packed to the Rafters, Love Child, Cleverman, and Bloom.

Now in the 2020s Corr’s talent and reputation have taken him all the way to Westeros to star opposite fellow Australian actor, Milly Alcock (young Rhaenyra) in House of the Dragon. Fans seemed shocked at Corr’s transformation from goofy ’00s teen heartthrob to grown fantasy sexy man, but with 17 years and a whole genre of difference between the role, it’s no surprise Corr has grown both literally and as an actor.
