Kit visited the BBC Radio studios again yesterday, this time to be a guest on Steve Wrights show. The interview will air on Monday afternoon and I will post it when it is released online
Last month The Sunday Times did a wonderful interview with Kit about his recent involvement with Mencap of which he is now an ambassador for. I’ve copied out the interview and the rest of it can be found below the cut
The Interview: Kit Harington, Game of Thrones actor
“In photoshoots when I’m asked to strip, I’ve felt the sexism”
It’s not easy keeping secrets in showbiz, but Kit Harington turned out to be rather good at it. For almost a year, after the Game of Thrones star’s character, Jon Snow, was turned into a pincushion by his supposedly loyal men in the Night’s Watch, all anyone wanted to know was whether he was really dead. The information was highly classified — even Barack Obama wasn’t able to find out the answer when he quizzed one of the show’s directors about the fate of his favourite character.
But Harington proved well suited to keeping it under his armour and batted away questions from journalists, friends and hangers-on with a succession of terse rejoinders. In fact the only time he appears to have cracked was when a police officer pulled him over for speeding. The bobby offered to let him off the ticket if he would admit whether Snow lived. Harington blabbed, and the officer let him go with a respectful “On your way, Lord Commander”.
There has been another secret in Harington’s life this year, that of his relationship with his co-star Rose Leslie. The pair got together when the flame-haired Scot played Harington’s on-screen lover, Ygritte. Their relationship has been on and off, leading to prolonged speculation about whether or not they were still seeing each other.
It’s all out in the open now, though. Jon Snow lives, revivified by the “Red Woman”, Melisandre. And, to the delight of the world’s paparazzi, Kit and Rose are definitely back on, holding hands on the red carpets.
And so Harington is finally allowed to talk. He has described the “formidable test” of keeping Snow’s secret, and has released a video apologising to his fans. “I’m glad that people were upset,” he said. “My biggest fear was that people were not going to care that Jon Snow was dead.” He’s also opened up on the subject of him and Leslie, recalling that they fell in love while shooting Thrones in Iceland under the “magical” northern lights. “If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest, it becomes very easy to fall in love,” he said.
Harington may be able to talk freely again, but I wouldn’t expect a gushing torrent of revelations. Becoming famous, properly photographers-hiding-in-the-bushes famous, has made this 29-year-old more than a little wary of the spotlight.
Earlier today Kit visited BBC Radio One in London to be a guest on the breakfast show hosted by Nick Grimshaw. Pictures from it have also been added to the gallery along with the full interview below

I must apologise about it being so late in this being posted but despite watching the recording of the interview I completely forgot to post it yesterday for those who may have missed it or were unable to watch. Enjoy guys!
Thanks to my friend Luciana we now have the scans from Kits interview with Entertainment Weekly. I can’t wait to see the rest of the outtakes from the shoot he did for it so keep your eyes peeled for those when they’re released. If you’ve not seen the latest episode of Game of Thrones and have somehow managed to avoid the spoilers (if you have bravo to you sirs and madams) I would advise not to look at the scans yet
