Session 047 [+005]
Scans of this interview are circulating around the internet but want to wait to bring you guys better quality ones so for now enjoy and excerpt from it
When we meet him, Kit Harington is all in black and lounging on a hotel room sofa in his socks (“all Vuitton shoes,” he says later, “are uncomfortable, apparently”) after enjoying the premiere of Testament of Youth, which took place the previous evening, “maybe a little too much.”
He won’t be pushed on why he enjoyed the premiere too much, unfortunately – maybe because, after the huge success of Game of Thrones, he’s very aware of giving journalists too much to jump on.
Suffice to say, when we suggest that he might be longing for the end of the day so that he can have a drink, his denials are swift.
Rather than Game of Thrones (although we will get to that later) or his possibly hungover state, though, we’re here to discuss the big screen adaptation of Vera Brittain’s generation-defining memoir, in which Harington is bringing to life the writer’s lost fiancé, Roland Leighton.
Kit’s character is dreamlike and often distant from protagonist Vera – both physically, on the Front Line, and in his words, which were recounted in her memoir 15 years after the war had ended.
This eerie, dreamlike nature is deliberately drawn by James Kent’s direction, which brings an idyllic quality to the pre war years and an apocalyptic sense to the years of fighting, reflecting the fact that the entire source text was a memory. Opposed to her slain brother and fiancé Vera appears solid and whole, with a much more defined voice. How did Kit go about creating a character who, really, was nothing more than a memory?
No sooner had I posted saying there were no pictures for the new campaign, what did I stumble across? Pictures from the new SS15 Collection. I am loving these new images, gorgeous stuff!
Jimmy Choo Menswear SS15 [+007]
He was announced as the face of Jimmy Choo last year and it seems that modelling is certainly a good look for Kit Harington. The 28-year-old looks super suave in new images released by the British fashion house. Modelling the Spring Summer 2015 men’s collection, Kit smoulders in the campaign which was shot by Steven Klein. The first shot shows Kit on the bonnet of a car which is sat in a petrol station in the middle of nowhere. Sporting a beard and slicked back hair, the British actor is modeling a pair of snazzy silver trainers from the latest accessories collection. Another shot shows him sat with his legs through the car window as he pulls another moody pout. “Kit perfectly embodies the Jimmy Choo Man,” said Creative director Sandra Choi. “He has a natural and alluring masculinity and an effortless sense of style. His cool attitude and smoldering sensuality belie a true British gentleman.” Kit said of his latest modelling work: “I was very excited to be chosen as the face for such a highly regarded brand and to play a role in defining who the Jimmy Choo man is.”It was a fun shoot and a great experience working with Steven Klein” he added.
Kits second promotional stint for Jimmy Choo has been released online. No pictures of the campaign as of yet but once I find them I will add those to the gallery but for now enjoy this wonderful video showcasing the Spring/Summer 2015 collection
