Kit Harington, 26
Born in London
Who do you play?
In the GoT world, I’m Jon Snow, the illegitimate son of Ned Stark. And in that world, if you’re a bastard child you’re normally treated as if you’re nothing. But he’s been brought up quite well by his father and he’s a good person, which is unusual.
Has life changed since you joined Game of Thrones?
It is a physically demanding role, so I have to keep really fit. When I have a couple of months off I’ll use that time to go to the gym, although, just before filming began this season, I broke my ankle climbing up through my bedroom window trying to get my keys. Yes, I was drunk.
Who’s your favourite GoT character?
Tyrion Lannister, played by Peter Dinklage. He’s the only person who talks sense. Everyone is completely nuts – nuts for power, or just insane. And he’s an outsider, like Jon Snow.
The show doesn’t shy away from graphic scenes of violence and sex…
You’ll turn up on set and they’ll say, “Right, you can just gut this chicken.” It’s very real – if there are dead rabbits hanging in the background, you can guarantee those aren’t fake rabbits. That realism is also why people respond to it – if you do fantasy cheaply, it doesn’t work.

It’s Game of Thrones day and in an effort to help a couple of friends spread the word about their new sites, I thought I’d give them a little plug here. If you’re a fan of the lovely Esmé Bianco or her character Ros, then check out Ally’s new site Esmé Bianco Online. If you’re a fan of Tobias Menzies and are looking forward to his upcoming appearance as Ser Edmure Tully, then check out Chuckie’s new site Tobias Menzies Fan. Both sites are still works in progress, but they will be adding new content and photos over the coming weeks and would appreciate the visits if you have some time to check them out.
Ndrika, who writes for Candid Canada, was kind enough to share her wonderful Kit Harington encounter with us. She met our lovely Brit on April 10, 2013 in Toronto, Canada where he is currently filming his latest movie project Pompeii. Read her awesome story below.
IT MAY BE SPRING BUT BRING ON THE SNOW!
I was just on my way to Second City to watch a comedy gig, (which was amazing by the way) and who should I bump in to but the one and only Jon Snow from Game of Thrones aka Kit Harington! For those of you who don’t know, Game of Thrones is possibly my favorite show of all time!
He was absolutely lovely! I asked for a picture and gushed my heart out about how much ‘I bloody love Game of Thrones’ and even though he was obviously in a rush, he was more than happy to stay and chat.
He recognized my Yorkshire accent immediately ”Oh my goodness, now wait a minute. You sound like you’re from up north” and I replied by stating that I am from Sheffield where Sean Bean is from, letting him know that The Bean is a living legend in Sheffield. I also let him know how shocked I was when I first heard him interviewed in his posh London accent because his northern accent is spot on! “Well thank you so much” he replied gratefully “I learnt my northern accent by watching O2 adverts”. Hot AND funny. Now that’s a dangerous combination!
I wonder what he’s doing in Toronto, not that I’m complaining!
