Augustman, October 2016

Scans from Kits latest front cover for Augustman Singapore have been added to the gallery. I have typed up the interview for you to read and the rest can be found using the link below. Editorial images will be added once they are released. Enjoy!

Through tax incentives and great filming facilities, Vancouver and Toronto have long been the third and fourth most popular locations for filming in North America, after Los Angeles and New York, but this year Montreal joined the pack, with a considerable number of projects under way in Quebec’s largest city. That’s where we headed to meet Kit Harington, otherwise known as “Jon Snow” on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Filming the upcoming movie The Death and Life of John F Donovan, the 29-year-old British actor was on a extremely tight, 16-hours-a-day shooting schedule, under the direction of Xavier Dolan. I t was a miracle to be able to squeeze out a half-day with him.
A clever compromise between New York and Paris, Old Town Montreal in the summer is a lovely place to walk around, as many tourists visit the cobblestone-paved streets in this neighbourhood overlooking the Saint-Laurent river. Without a doubt, it was a glorious location for the Augustman crew to settle in, in the newly opened Epik boutique hotel. With wooden beams and a giant vintage wheel hanging from the roof, the top floor had an obvious Game of Thrones feel, making Harington feel right at home.

  1. What an insightful long interview. They covered everything from charities,football and GOT.Kit gets more interesting the more interviews I read. But I do wish he’d get withe rest of us on social media. And he’s still mum on his love life. Could that be John Donovan coming thru

    1. I doubt he will ever use social media and I admire him for that as to me it sets him apart from other well known people who have caved after media/social pressure to do so. Everything he says is a small insight as to who he is in every interview and with regards to his personal life, he’s every right to avoid the question if put to him just as we do if we are asked something we would rather not answer or talk about 🙂

      1. First of all, let me tell you THANK YOU, Helen , for typing such a long article! I really appreciate that! I value Kit more with each interview he has due to his modesty and his keen sense of humour. I always read his interviews with the pleasure of reading a good book! Moreover, I agree with you, Helen, regarding his attitude towards the use of social media. My compliments to him for keeping his private life, feelings and inner thoughts for himself and his family. I love him more for that! Hopefully, he will remain the same person, unspoiled by this “Hollywood” world, and come back on stage where his professional roots are. Great interview!

  2. I enjoyed this respectful interview. I e
    Like him as an actor. Hope to read more about him in the future.
