Kit has done his first interview of the year with Elle USA and the digital scan can be found in the gallery and will be typed up in due course. At the end of 2016 I added lots of other missing scans to the gallery with more coming shortly. As you are all aware Kit is currently in Iceland filming Game of Thrones hence why things have been slightly quiet of late. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years holiday
I have decided to start off something new here at KHO where you can find a review of everything Kit has done during the year. It wasn’t until I began to do this when it actually hit me just how busy he has been and how much the site has covered.
It has seen Kit return to the West End stage and more drama than you could shake a stick at in Game of Thrones (The review for this won’t be spoiler free with regards to the latest season so continue reading at your own discretion) He also begun filming Xavier Dolans The Death and Life of John F. Donovan with production on hiatus until next year with the film expected for release some time in 2018. If you wish to bypass the year in review click here (it is rather long) to be taken straight to the sites favourite moments but if you want to read the entire thing it continues below the cut
Today our favourite glorious ray of sunshine is celebrating his 30th birthday. I hope he has a wonderful day and gets lots of attention this year. Monitored comments are turned off for today so you can post your birthday wish 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.
What was the first job that you got?
First job I got was War Horse. It was the play War Horse. I know. Landed on my feet with that. [It] was my first job. They needed a young man who could look prepubescent, and back then I fitted that bill. So I looked like a prepubescent boy, and that was just the ticket for War Horse. So I played the lead boy in War Horse.
