Who does Javon Walton play in The Umbrella Academy?
Javon Walton plays Stan in The Umbrella Academy and is introduced in season 3 episode 1.
The 15-year-old American actor best known for his portrayal of Ashtray in HBO’s Euphoria is a recurring presence throughout the latest season.
Diving into his introduction, the usual cast of characters are ultimately forced out of their home and headquarters, with Klaus suggesting that they go to stay at the Hotel Obsidian. Once a thriving hotspot for the rich and the famous, it’s now home to a number of misfits and social outcasts.
Amongst them is Stan – or Stanley, rather – who we’re told is Lila (played by Ritu Arya) and Diego’s (David Castañeda) son. Lila explains that she’s been bringing the youth up for over a decade and, although it’s a rocky road, Diego grows to care for Stan.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
Stan isn’t exactly who we’re told
If you’re eager to avoid spoilers about Stan’s past then it may be best to resume the article after you’ve finished season 3. If not, here goes.
While Diego believes Lila and is confident that Stan is his own flesh and blood, it’s eventually revealed by Lila personally that he isn’t their child. She lied to him and it turns out that Stan is Lila’s friend’s son.
She met the friend in 1980s Berlin and she has actually been the one bringing up her own son. So why the charade?
Well, Lila is actually pregnant in the present and wanted to pass Stan off as her and Diego’s child in order to assess whether he would step up to the plate as a father.
