The nominations for this years Critics Choice have been released and I’m so pleased to say that Kit has received his second nomination of the year for Game of Thrones in the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama series category. The 22nd annual Critics Choice Awards airs on A&E live on December 11 at 8pm ET, 5pm PT. Due to filming season 7 it is not known if Kit will attend but I will edit this post when I know otherwise. Game of Thrones has also been nominated for Best Drama series
Several sets of images from the production of S7 have been added to the gallery and they do include potential spoilers so view them at your own discretion. Kit can be seen filming alongside Liam Cunningham (and other cast members who shall remain anonymous for those who wish to stay spoiler free) in several locations in Spain
For those of you who are active on social media please beware that there have been huge leaks which I am told contain details of specific episode content. Whether they are true or not is another matter but if you don’t wish to be spoiled just a warning to be careful on which links you access
Scans from Kits latest front cover for Augustman Singapore have been added to the gallery. I have typed up the interview for you to read and the rest can be found using the link below. Editorial images will be added once they are released. Enjoy!
Through tax incentives and great filming facilities, Vancouver and Toronto have long been the third and fourth most popular locations for filming in North America, after Los Angeles and New York, but this year Montreal joined the pack, with a considerable number of projects under way in Quebec’s largest city. That’s where we headed to meet Kit Harington, otherwise known as “Jon Snow” on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Filming the upcoming movie The Death and Life of John F Donovan, the 29-year-old British actor was on a extremely tight, 16-hours-a-day shooting schedule, under the direction of Xavier Dolan. I t was a miracle to be able to squeeze out a half-day with him.
A clever compromise between New York and Paris, Old Town Montreal in the summer is a lovely place to walk around, as many tourists visit the cobblestone-paved streets in this neighbourhood overlooking the Saint-Laurent river. Without a doubt, it was a glorious location for the Augustman crew to settle in, in the newly opened Epik boutique hotel. With wooden beams and a giant vintage wheel hanging from the roof, the top floor had an obvious Game of Thrones feel, making Harington feel right at home.
As promised the scans from Kit’s front cover for Elle Men China have been added to the gallery. I’m hoping to replace them with better quality when they become available
The interview Kit participated in for next months edition of W Magazine has been released. Scans and outtakes from the issue will be added next month once they become available. More of the interview can be read using the link below
Kit Harington is glad Jon Snow isn’t dead, too
The Emmy-nominated Game of Thrones actor did “thousands upon thousands of takes” to master the now famous scene where his character came back to life. And it was all worth it.
At the 2016 Emmy Awards, Game of Thrones’s Kit Harington and Mr Robot’s Rami Malek competed against each other in the category of best supporting actor. Although Malek ultimately took home the prize, in W’s Royals portfolio the two actors are side by side in the TV category. Harington is the classic royal, thanks to his portrayal of Jon Snow over the past six seasons. Before the fantasy series exploded and he became a sex symbol, he was just an unknown stage actor in London who got into fights in McDonald’s.
What was the first thing you auditioned for?
First ever thing I auditioned for? Would have been to get into drama school. I auditioned for those. But first professional job I ever auditioned for was a BBC comedy and I think when you’re coming out of drama school you like put so much effort and onus on that one audition. I can’t even remember what it was now, but I remember being so nervous for it.
Did you get it?
No. No, and then that felt like the biggest thing in the world as well. I didn’t get the job. “Oh, my god, I’m terrible.” And then I got, I got a job soon after that.
The first pictures of Kit arriving at the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards held at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles have been added to the gallery. I’m hoping to bring you lots more wonderful pictures throughout the night
