Leo Ashton (Aemond Targaryen) shares his audition tape for House of The Dragon



Leo Ashton (Aemond Targaryen) shares his audition tape for House of The Dragon

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon reached new heights after the premiere of the seventh episode earlier today. The episode begins with a grim tone, with Laena Velaryon’s funeral after her suicide in the previous chapter. However, the events that follow snowball into a bigger conflict, when Alicent Hightower’s second son Aemond claims Vhagar for himself. The skirmish that follows sees Aemond losing his eye, however, as he and Otto see it, it was worth the price.

Actor Leo Ashton, who played the younger version of Aemond ‘One-Eye’ Targaryen in episodes 6 and 7, was amazingly good in his role. He recently posted his audition video, which sees him reciting the line he’s supposed to say to his older brother in the series, Aegon II Targaryen, on Twitter with the caption, “First audition for Aemond n a very dodgy accent with more than a tinge of chorley init ???? #ThrowbackThursday”

Ashton has previously appeared in other TV shows such as Red Rose (2022) and The Bay (2019). He will be replaced by actor Ewan Mitchell in episode 8 of House of The Dragon, who will continue playing the older version of Aemond Targaryen for the rest of the series.
