Kit Harington has no qualms about one day showing his son his raunchier Game of Thrones scenes.
The actor, who shares his 9-month-old baby boy with Thrones costar and wife Rose Leslie, recently chatted with E! News’ Daily Pop about his whether he’ll eventually let his son watch the series — and how he plans on discussing the show with his little one.
Harington, 34, said he’ll most likely tell his son, “Look, I mean, you can just be thankful that it happened because otherwise you wouldn’t be here.”
“So that will be it,” he said, cracking a smile. “I’ll be like, ‘You don’t like watching it? Well, tough luck.”
As for now, Harington said he is staying focused on spending time with his baby boy.
“I’m going through something at the moment which is that I spend weeks prior to coming out here sort of, you know, feeding him, pampering him, looking after him,” the actor said. “And then I go to get on a flight, come here, and now I’m looked after and being pampered. So I’m living the dream right now!”
Leslie, 34, confirmed their pregnancy in September 2020 after she debuted her baby bump for U.K.’s Make Magazine and spoke about how the couple had been spending quality time together in their Tudor manor house in East Anglia amid the pandemic. PEOPLE then confirmed in February that Harington and his wife had welcomed their first baby.
The actor also reflects on the most surprising scene featuring his character, Dane Whitman: “there are many different ways we could go with him.”
[This story contains spoilers for Eternals.]
Kit Harington still feels a bit uncertain about joining another franchise so soon after the completion of Game of Thrones, but the chance to play a compelling character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was too tempting to pass up. In Chloé Zhao‘s ambitious blockbuster, Eternals, Harington plays Dane Whitman, a caring museum worker and present-day love interest of Gemma Chan’s Sersi. The latter was once involved with Ikaris, who’s played by Richard Madden, one of Harington’s closest friends since their days as half-brothers on Game of Thrones. While Harington understands the attention surrounding their on-screen reunion, he, along with Madden, remain relatively unaffected by it.
“I’ve said this a few times, but it’s true: we really didn’t have a lot of time on set together on Game of Thrones. So it’s strange,” Harington tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Our closeness is not built in front of camera; it’s built behind camera. For fans of Game of Thrones, to see two major roles from that world in another one feels like a bigger thing than it does to me and Richard.”
While Harington doesn’t yet know the particulars of Whitman’s future, he can’t help but analyze the Eternals post-credit scene that features his character and a family heirloom.
“There is no roadmap that I know of at the moment. If they have ideas about where my character goes, I’m not privy to it,” Harington shares. “All I know is that when I came on board, they said, ‘There’s a really interesting future for this character, and if you read up about him, there are many different ways we could go with him.’ And that intrigues me. I’m fascinated by the idea that any character in any story is driven by some addiction to something. And with [Dane Whitman], it’s very palpable that this sword, this blade, has an addictive pull on him, and I find that really interesting.”
In a recent conversation with THR, Harington also discusses Zhao’s affinity for natural light and how that impacts his performance. Then he addresses the possibility of reuniting with another Thrones co-star and dear friend, Emilia Clarke, in the MCU.

Thanks to Ariane and my brother Nicky, I got great HQ captures of the Season 1 of Game of Thrones. I have added and replaced the old ones because those ones were a poor quality and some things need to be seen in HD quality, don’t you think?. I am going to add the rest of seasons as soon as I can. Enjoy!
SPOILER WARNING: This story vaguely discusses a single scene in Marvel Studios’ “Eternals” that has been released by Disney, as well as a hypothetical future for Dane Whitman, Kit Harington’s character in the MCU.
After spending eight seasons as one of the leads on HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Kit Harington decided to trade one massively popular cultural juggernaut for another, joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe in director Chloé Zhao’s “Eternals.”
Moving on from Jon Snow — the taciturn medieval warrior and erstwhile king of the North — Harington’s role in “Eternals” is Dane Whitman, a modern London bloke who happens to be dating Sersi (Gemma Chan), one of the titular Eternals, at the start of the film.
In the Marvel comics, however, Dane has more in common with Jon Snow — or, at least, a world of swords and sorcery — than Harington’s performance in “Eternals” would suggest. Dane’s family lineage stretches back to the medieval legend of King Arthur and the persona of the Black Knight, a warrior connected to the cursed Ebony Blade that bestows whoever wields it with terrific power — but at the cost of their sanity.
In the comics, Dane fights alongside the Avengers, and wrestles between heroism and villainy thanks to the cursed Ebony Blade. It’s no spoiler to note that none of that happens in “Eternals,” which casts Harington’s Dane as, in the actor’s words, “a good guy” — one of the only normal humans in a film otherwise concerned with ageless superheroes who first arrived on Earth roughly 7,000 years ago.
