Simon Russell Beale as Ser Simon Strong
During the Dance of the Dragons, Simon Strong was a knight from House Strong. He was the castellan of Harrenhal and the great-uncle of Lord Larys Strong, who was in charge. Simon was an older man by the year 129 AD.
At the Dance of the Dragons, Simon gave up Harrenhal when he saw Caraxes, the dragon of Prince Daemon Targaryen. Then Daemon took Simon and his children hostage. Simon was set free when Ser Criston Cole, Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, took back the castle.
However, Prince Aemond Targaryen was angry about the fall of King’s Landing and thought Simon was a rogue who had given up Harrenhal too easily to Daemon. Simon was forced to fight Aemond, and after Simon was killed, Aemond fed Vhagar the old knight’s body. Then Aemond had the rest of the Strongs killed at Harrenhal, except for Alys Rivers, who he made his bedmate.
