Game of Thrones star Kit Harington shifts into producing with Gunpowder, a miniseries in which he plays his real-life ancestor on his mother’s side, Catholic rebel Robert Catesby. Catesby was part of Britain’s 1605 Gunpowder Plot to blow up Parliament. Gunpowder airs on HBO nightly from Dec. 18 to Dec. 20. TIME spoke to Harington—currently at work on the final season of Thrones—about coming into his own as a producer and what he learned from his bosses on the Game of Thrones set.

When did you first learn you were related to Robert Catesby?

I don’t actually know—it was one of those first things you learn, one of those family stories, one of those pieces of family curiosity. I can’t pinpoint when I knew or found out about it. What went into the inception of this piece is the drama around that piece of history. That’s how I started approaching it, from the family connection to him, but it’s just one of those family things you grow up with.

Did you find Catesby to be a relatable figure?

As I went along trying to depict Catesby and get into his head, the less I sympathized with him. He’s persecuted—I see why he does what he does. But the more I looked, the more I realized he’s an incredibly selfish person. He takes a whole lot of people along with him who wouldn’t have ended up becoming attempted murderers. Reading up on him and looking at the real historical person, he thought quite a lot of himself. He really felt he was on the way to change history. He basically after a while couldn’t see what he was attempting which was to kill innocent people and become as bad as those people who were persecuting him.

It must be a complicated thing that you’ve now made this project bringing a family name further into the light—and yet you’ve depicted him as an impetuous, zealous, person. How did your parents feel about this project?

They were over the moon about it! It must have been 2005, my mum had written a very good piece for the radio—she’s a playwright, and she wrote a really good piece about the women of the Gunpowder Plot, and she wrote about Catesby’s mother. She looked into the complexity of it as well. Because of that, she was very pleased I had the same thought to do something around it.

HBO Europe has loaded up on “Gunpowder” and will show the BBC period series on its networks in the Nordics, Central and Eastern Europe, and Spain.

The three-parter is a retelling of the 17th-century “Gunpowder Plot” to blow up the British Houses of Parliament. “Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington plays the lead role of Robert Catesby, a persecuted Catholic who hatched the plan.

Harington is a direct descendant of Catesby and helped develop “Gunpowder” through his production company Thriker Films. It made the show with Kudos, which is part of the Endemol Shine Group.

Endemol Shine International sells the series and inked the HBO Europe deal. It has already sold the series to HBO in the U.S.

HBO subscribers are familiar with Harington through the cabler’s biggest series, “Game of Thrones,” and in “Gunpowder” will see him alongside Liv Tyler (“Lord of the Rings”), Peter Mullan (“Top of the Lake”), and Mark Gatiss (“Sherlock”).

The limited series went out on flagship channel BBC One in the U.K. in October. “Not only fans of Kit Harington, but also thriller fans can look forward to this historical, explosive miniseries event,” said Ragnhild Thorbech, SVP acquisitions & programming, HBO Europe.

“’Gunpowder’ is a powerful drama that delivered brilliant ratings for BBC One,” added Cathy Payne, CEO of Endemol Shine International. “HBO Europe’s lineup continues to feature many of the strongest television offerings we have seen available globally in 2017, and we are pleased to continue our ongoing relationship.” [Source]
