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.
Yesterday Kit attended the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards along with several members of those involved in the Game of Thrones production. As we all know, Kit was nominated in the category for Outstanding Supporting Actor which he unfortunately didn’t win but a number of awards were still won, some of which were for Outstanding Writing for a Drama series and Outstanding Directing for a Drama series which went to Miguel Sapochnik for Battle of the Bastards. Over 200 high quality images from the event have now been added to the gallery and I hope everyone enjoys looking through them all

But as with film, in television the strongest returns lie with the big and the small, not the swollen middle. There is the enormous, costly cultural force that is HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” starring Kit Harington as the noble Jon Snow. It is perhaps the last universally-loved, universally-watched show in America, and it is shouldered valiantly by Harington, who was just an unknown stage actor in London before becoming a sex symbol when the fantasy series exploded.
Alongside Cate Blanchett, Keira Knightley, Jessie Eisenberg et al, Kit has taken part in a reading of a poem written by Jenifer Toksvig highlighting the current refugee crisis, entitled ‘What They Took With Them’. To support the charity if you wish, the website and petition can be found here
