HBO have released a short clip for a Game of Thrones special which they will be airing on February 2nd at 8pm. Don’t forget to tune in if you can
The Testament of Youth and Game of Thrones star spills the beans on series five, love at first sight, Spooks, Colin Morgan and more…
Kit Harington is a busy man. Not only does he star in upcoming film Testament of Youth, but he’s got a new series of Game of Thrones set to hit screens this April and a starring role in the Spooks movie.
So, when we sat down for a Kit chat, it’s fair to say we had plenty of questions for the 28-year-old British actor, best known for playing Jon Snow in the gory HBO series.
Here’s what he had to say…
1. Kit Harington wants to be a superhero
He may be better recognised in his heavy furs, but Kit’s keen to don a pair of tights, following in the footsteps of fellow Brits Tom Hiddleston, Andrew Garfield, Henry Cavill and, most recently, Benedict Cumberbatch. “I think in the future it’s something I would look at,” he tells us. “Those movies are awesome fun to do and get watched by millions and millions and millions of people and people have a real passion for [them]. It would have to be the right one at the right time and I’d be lucky to be offered it.”
2. He’s also keen to play the bad guy but worries no one will cast him
“I don’t know if I’ll ever be the baddie,” he laments. “I’d like to but I don’t know if they’ll ever take a shot with me being the baddie. They always want to put me as a whiter than white character. I’d like to play something darker.” Although, playing Will Holloway in the Spooks movie is giving him a taster for it: “he’s not squeaky clean. Jon Snow is pretty squeaky clean, Roland [in Testament of Youth] is pretty squeaky clean, this guy’s a little darker at times.”
Yesterday HBO announced an airing date for the 5th season of Game of Thrones. It will air on Sunday 12th April and for fans in the UK it will air a day later on Monday 13th April. Happy days!

According to THR on February 8th, HBO will release a featurette for Game of Thrones hopefully featuring some new footage of Kit for the up and coming season
Game of Thrones fans will get a a behind-the-scenes look at the show on Feb. 8, when HBO airs a new featurette called “A Day In The Life.” A rather quaint name for a show about killing, plotting and other nefarious deeds, no?
The special airs at 7:30 p.m. ET/PT, and was first reported by the Game of Thrones fanatics over at Watchers on the Wall after a tipster spotted it on their HBO Go schedule.
Ahead of season four, HBO aired “Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing,” which gave viewers a look at the new characters for that season as well as a taste of the year’s big storylines. It’s unclear if that will be the case here, but there are plenty of new characters lined up for season five fans are surely dying to know about
HBO has released a trailer with new footage of Kit from season 5 of Game of Thrones. He appears at 1:41 and it can be checked out below!
