Teen actor Javon Walton is probably best known for his scene-stealing role as the doomed Ashtray on the first two seasons of HBO’s Euphoria. But Walton, who will next appear in the superhero film Samaritan later this summer, also had a nice turn on season 3 of The Umbrella Academy as Stan, the alleged spawn of Diego (David Castañeda) and Lila (Ritu Arya).
The part on Netflix’s popular series involved a bit more heavy lifting, so to speak, than Ashtray, who mostly glared silently from Fez’s drug den — which is not to drag Walton’s performance, as there’s a very good reason the character became a fan favorite. But the almost 14-year-old actor had a little help from family — his twin brother Jaden, to be specific — who doubled as his stand-in.
