(Interview) Rotten Tomatoes

Most actors haven’t had the good fortune of landing a major role right out of drama school, let alone one that explodes into a global phenomenon, but that’s exactly how it happened for Kit Harington, best known as fan favorite Jon Snow on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Coming off a thrilling season five episode whose climactic action set piece found Jon Snow at its center, Harington next appears this week in Testament of Youth, alongside Alicia Vikander (Ex-Machina) and Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service).

The film is a World War I drama based on the memoirs of Vera Brittain, who overcame gender barriers and followed her brother and fiance to war as a volunteer nurse. Harington took some time to chat with RT about the film, his early interest in journalism, and how strange he thought the pilot of Game of Thrones was.

(Interview) Out + Session 057

I think this may be one of my favourite photoshoots Kit has ever done. Unfortunately I was only able to find medium quality pictures from the shoot so far but they will be replaced if and when I find higher quality images. The scans from the magazine will follow as soon as I am able to get my hands on the issue. Until then I have typed out the interview that accompanies the shoot below. Enjoy it!

Jon Snow Is Not Dead (Yet)

In a show where everyone is expendable, Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has proven to be the ultimate survivor. But can he make it to the end?

The Look: Kit Harington for Mr Porter

From rural Worcestershire to Westeros, why the raven-haired Game of Thrones actor has Hollywood at his beck and call

Meeting a famous person in the flesh typically requires a lightning-fast adjustment of expectation. In the case of Mr Kit Harington, the break-out star of the global TV smash Game of Thrones, this distorting effect is both reduced and, oddly, magnified. He looks exactly like Jon Snow, the hero he plays on the show – same tangled raven locks, same close-cropped beard, same pensive expression. So that’s reassuring. All the more jarring, then, that rather than Snow’s familiar fur-collared cloak, Mr Harington is wearing a summer blazer, and instead of wielding a broadsword, he’s carrying nothing more immediately threatening than a pack of Marlboros.

In other words, he is both instantly recognisable as the brooding, saturnine Snow, and apparently nothing like him whatsoever: a chatty, unassuming Englishman, 28 years old, with the entertainment world at his feet, who just happens to look uncannily like a mythical warrior of Westeros. It’s a little disorienting for me, so imagine how he feels.

Playing Jon Snow in Game of Thrones has made Kit Harington a star. But he isn’t all swords and brooding looks. He talks to Ed Cumming about Spooks, politics and his role as a dim-witted tennis player

Two weeks before I meet Kit Harington I am waiting to be let into the premiere of the fifth season of Game of Thrones and get talking to a middle-aged man. The programme is HBO and Sky Atlantic’s golden trumpet, so they have rented the Tower of London for the night and erected a 1,000-seat cinema in its moat. Dragons are projected on to the outer walls; flaming torches line the approach. The queue is long and intractable. The man next to me, it turns out, is David Harington, or “Jon Snow’s father”, as he introduces himself, but even this is not enough to help him skip to the front. We stand in the drizzle and chat about his son.

“The thing Kit always says is that he’d do the acting for free,” says Harington Sr. “It’s all this other stuff that he gets paid for – the fame, the attention, the loss of privacy.” As if on cue, from somewhere beyond the wall comes a barrage of teenage shrieks. Kit has arrived on the red carpet. His voice booms incomprehensibly from a speaker. More screams, distant camera flashes. David sighs, but pride beams out of him. “He’s so busy that sometimes the easiest way to find out what’s happening to him is to search online. Google Analytics thinks I’m a 17-year-old girl from South America.”

(Interview) The Independent

The Game of Thrones actor shot all his own stunts in the big screen version of the hit TV series and soon learnt first-hand just how risky playing an MI5 agent can be. “There’s a part where my head gets smashed through a wall. That wasn’t meant to cave in so that was a close scrape,” he told The Independent. “It was a rough movie, but you get bumps and bruises in any type of action movie.”
