HBO's "Euphoria" is stacked with incredible talent, including Javon Walton! The 15-year-old plays Ashtray, a quick-witted preteen assistant to his drug-dealing older brother, Fez, and his first-ever acting scene was with Zendaya herself.

"When I got the call to read for the part of Ashtray, I had never even considered acting. Memorizing the lines came super easy to me, and I was able to connect with the character without any coaching," Walton told Vanity Teen in 2022. "My first scene, my first time ever acting, was with Zendaya. And just like with boxing, I became a sponge and wanted to be the best. I learned a lot from watching Zendaya on set, and Sam (Levinson) gave me the confidence and support to shape Ashtray as I saw him."

He also recently appeared in season three of Netflix's "The Umbrella Academy." But did you know he's more than just a talented actor? Walton is an incredible athlete, has dipped his toe in modeling and voice-over work, and has even done a project with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson! Since he stars in one of today's hottest shows, it's hard to imagine the Georgia native has time for anything outside of acting and doing press for "Euphoria," but Walton makes it work — including finding time to train for arguably the biggest televised worldwide sporting event.
