Aussie star shocks with unrecognisable transformation: 'MIND BLOWN'

Fans have been losing it on TikTok after a video showed Aussie actor Ryan Corr looking completely unrecognisable in his new role on House of Dragon.

Ryan, who has had a number of film roles including Wolf Creek 2 and starred in Aussie TV series Packed to the Rafters, Love Child, Blue Water High and The Sleepover Club, has landed his big Hollywood break playing Ser Harwin Strong in the Game of Thrones spin-off series.

A video posted to TikTok showed pictures of Ryan in his younger years starring in The Sleepover Club with his blonde-tipped hair spiked up.

"WAIT, WHAT?" one said.

"I was not ready," a fan commented.

"I was genuinely waiting for this and thought ok yeah let’s see how he i.. MOUTH DROPPED," a third added.

"MIND BLOWN I HAD TO GOOGLE THIS!!" another comment read.

"I'm shook, this is shocking," a fan stated.

Others praised the star, with TikTokers feeling nostalgic about the shows he had been in as a child.

"I had such a crush on him in Silver Sun," one wrote.

"I loved The Sleepover Club so much," another claimed.
