LOVE/Hate'S Aaron Heffernan is hoping for a part in Game of Thrones, the Diary can reveal.

The 23-year-old auditioned for the next season of the HBO phenomenon.

Aaron (inset, below), who plays a drugs squad detective in Stuart Carolan's RTE drama, has been enjoying a busy year in front of the cameras.

As well as filming the fifth season of the gangland programme, Dubliner Aaron is hoping that he'll get picked up for the next instalment of Game of Thrones.

The Trinity College graduate tried out for the part of a soldier in the 'unsullied' army of Daenerys Targaryen, played by Emilia Clarke.

And if he makes it through to the next round of casting, Aaron could see himself following in the footsteps of his pal Jack Gleeson.

Jack's character King Joffrey was killed off the medieval series earlier this year.

No matter what happens with his Game of Thrones chances, Aaron will be back on the small screen in October for the next season of Love/Hate.


Meanwhile, his Love/Hate co-star Ian Lloyd Anderson has been as busy in love as he has in acting.

The actor, who portrays gangster Fran's sidekick Deano, recently returned from the US where he was celebrating his engagement to fiancée Kim Harris.

The long-term couple got engaged in July and headed off on holiday to New York after the proposal.

While staying in the Big Apple, the pair caught up with pal and rising star Sarah Greene who was performing in the Broadway play The Cripple of Inishmaan alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Pat Shortt.
