Why Kit Harington was excited to play an ‘antagonistic dirtbag’ in ‘Blood for Dust’

After playing the hero on “Game of Thrones,” Harington says he finds it “more interesting looking for the f—ed up people.”

Over the course of eight years, the world came to know Kit Harington as Jon Snow, the steadfast hero at the center of Game of Thrones’ dark world. Brave and honorable to his core, Snow fought to save his family and the realm from the forces of evil, even rising from the dead to vanquish an evil zombie army.

Five years after the show ended, Harington is now starring in a very different role. In fact, the only thing the characters have in common is that they both thrive in cold weather. In Rod Blackhurst’s Blood for Dust, a neo-Western crime thriller set in snowy Montana, Harington plays Ricky, a sociopathic drug-slinging arms dealer sporting a handlebar mustache and gold chain. He stars opposite Scoot McNairy, who plays Cliff, a down-on-his-luck salesman with a checkered past. When Cliff loses his job, his old colleague Ricky pulls him back into the criminal underbelly, selling drugs and guns for a cartel.

“He’s sort of a devil-on-the-shoulder character, the antagonist who’s with you all the way through,” Harington tells Entertainment Weekly of the role. “He’s like a good-time guy in a bad world. He doesn’t want to have to face reality.”

If Ricky sounds like the polar opposite of Jon Snow, that’s just how Harington wanted it. “I rarely get the opportunity to play the Rickys of this world, the antagonistic dirtbag types, and I was excited to be presented with that opposite an actor like Scoot,” he says. “So that was the kind of pull, and then Rod, the director, had such a clear idea of what he wanted to do and had it so well planned that I just felt very much in safe hands. It felt well put together. And then it’s all about growing a big old mustache and adopting a seriously American accent.”

While Ricky presented Harington with a unique type of villain to sink his teeth into, playing the bad guy has been appealing to him in the five years since Thrones concluded. “That is seemingly what I’ve been hunting a bit,” Harington concedes. “If I look at the roles I’ve taken since playing an out-and-out hero in Game of Thrones, I have to admit there seems to be some sort of pushback about playing a hero. I’m not so interested in heroic roles, and if I am, they have to be pretty anti-hero-ish.

“My heart goes out to people playing heroes,” he continues. “They’re f—ing hard to play and to make interesting. It is more fascinating as an actor, I think, to empathize with someone deeply faulted and wrong, to try and find your way into why they are doing these things. [Playing] a guy who is doing all the right things and is driven by being good, it’s harder to do that. And I think people who do it successfully, who play classically heroic roles, are very talented actors. But at the moment, I just find it more interesting looking for the f—ed-up people.”

Kit Harington Pushes Back Against Hero Roles After Jon Snow

Kit Harington is in full villain mode in his new movie “Blood for Dust,” which is exactly the kind of role he’s been looking for since his tenure as the heroic Jon Snow ended on HBO’s “Game of Thrones” in 2019. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the actor admitted that he grew tired of playing the hero by the end of his run as Jon Snow and is now more interested in tackling “fucked up” guys.

“That is seemingly what I’ve been hunting a bit,” Harington said. “If I look at the roles I’ve taken since playing an out-and-out hero in ‘Game of Thrones,’ I have to admit there seems to be some sort of pushback about playing a hero. I’m not so interested in heroic roles, and if I am, they have to be pretty anti-hero-ish..”

“My heart goes out to people playing heroes,” he continued. “They’re fucking hard to play and to make interesting. It is more fascinating as an actor, I think, to empathize with someone deeply faulted and wrong, to try and find your way into why they are doing these things. [Playing] a guy who is doing all the right things and is driven by being good, it’s harder to do that. And I think people who do it successfully, who play classically heroic roles, are very talented actors. But at the moment, I just find it more interesting looking for the fucked-up people.”

Harington was preparing to reprise Jon Snow for a time as he was developing a “Game of Thrones” spinoff for HBO centered on the heroic character, but he confirmed earlier this month that the project has been shelved. Perhaps the actor’s resistance to traditional heroes steered him away from playing Jon Snow again.

“I hadn’t really ever spoken about it, because it was in development,” Harington told ScreenRant about the spinoff. “I didn’t want it leaked out that it was being developed. I didn’t want the thing to happen where people kind of start theorizing, getting either excited about it or hating the idea of it, when it may never happen. Because in development, you look at every angle, and you see whether it’s worth it.”

Kit Harington Says Jon Snow ‘Game of Thrones’ Spinoff Is No Longer in Development

Kit Harington announced in a new interview with ScreenRant while promoting his movie “Blood for Dust” that his “Game of Thrones” spinoff centered around Jon Show is “off the table” and no longer in development at HBO. The network declined to comment. News broke in June 2022 that Harington was set to return to his iconic “Thrones” role, which earned him two Emmy nominations (one for supporting actor and another for lead actor in a drama series).

“It was Kit Harrington who brought the idea to us,” author George R.R. Martin later confirmed in a blog post. “I cannot tell you the names of the writers/showrunners, since that has not been cleared for release yet but Kit brought them in too, his own team, and they are terrific.”

Now talking to ScreenRant, Harington admitted the team “couldn’t find the right story to tell” so the project is not in active development anymore.

“I hadn’t really ever spoken about it, because it was in development,” Harington said. “I didn’t want it leaked out that it was being developed. I didn’t want the thing to happen where people kind of start theorizing, getting either excited about it or hating the idea of it, when it may never happen. Because in development, you look at every angle, and you see whether it’s worth it.”

“And currently, it’s not. Currently, it’s off the table, because we all couldn’t find the right story to tell that we were all excited about enough,” he continued. “So, we decided to lay down tools with it for the time being. There may be a time in the future where we return to it, but at the moment, no. It’s firmly on the shelf.”

“Game of Thrones” concluded with Jon Snow’s exile from Westeros as he rides into the Haunted Forest with his direwolf Ghost and the Wildlings to begin a new life. Many fans assumed the spinoff series would pick up with Snow’s adventures with the Wildlings.

Slave Play writer criticises star casting but Kit Harington to feature in West End run

The writer of Slave Play, the controversial Broadway production about race and sexuality that caused protests and broke Tony nomination records, has criticised commercial theatre’s dependency on casting celebrities, saying it turns performances into a “Disney World attraction”.

Jeremy O Harris said star casting – hiring big-name TV, film and even social media stars to perform in the West End and on Broadway – could dilute the theatre experience and was no guarantee of success.

He said: “There’s a lot of people making theatre now who think commercial theatre can only be made if you have someone who’s on the biggest TV show or the biggest movie ever, with the marquee name as the reason for you to buy the ticket. I don’t believe in that.”

“It’s something that takes away from great theatre because people treat it like a Disney World attraction, where the play is background to the amusement of seeing their favourite celebrity in front of them.”

Slave Play will come to the Noël Coward theatre from 29 June to 21 September and will feature its own star name from the world of television.

The West End transfer of Harris’s record-breaking production will star Kit Harington, best known to millions of Game of Thrones fans for his performance as Jon Snow in the HBO drama.

Harris said he would not have agreed to his casting if Harington had wanted to “make it the Jon Snow Experience” and he had been impressed with the actor after he was recommended by another Game of Thrones star, Gwendoline Christie.

Sophie Turner & Kit Harington To Reteam On Gothic Horror ‘The Dreadful’

After starring together across all eight seasons of HBO’s hugely popular fantasy series Game of Thrones, Sophie Turner and Kit Harington are set to reunite on The Dreadful, a Gothic horror film launching sales at EFM through UTA Independent Film Group and Film Bridge International.

Written and to be directed by Natasha Kermani (Lucky, V/H/S/85), the film set against the backdrop of the War of the Roses follows Anne (Turner) and her mother-in-law Morwen, who live a solitary, harsh life on the outskirts of society. But when a man (Harington) from their past returns, he will set off a sequence of events that become a turning point for Anne.

In addition to Turner, producers on the film include Redwire Pictures/Tunnel’s Luke Daniels, as well as Storyboard Media’s Patrick Muldoon and Patrick Hibler, and Lucas Jarach. Greg Lauritano also produces under his Black Magic banner. Film Bridge International is repping foreign sales, with UTA Independent Film Group handling domestic.

On HBO’s Game of Thrones, based on a series of fantasy novels by George R. R. Martin, Turner played Sansa Stark, with Harington as the Night’s Watch’s Jon Snow. Both scored Emmy nominations for their work, among other accolades.

More recently, Turner has been seen in Netflix’s Do Revenge and Max’s crime drama The Staircase, among other projects.

Harington, meanwhile, has starred in Apple’s Extrapolations and Marvel’s Eternals.

A segment director on anthology film V/H/S/85, which hit Shudder last fall, Kermani also previously helmed SXSW horror drama Lucky, sci-fi drama Imitation Girl and the thriller Shattered.

Kermani is represented by UTA, Persistent and attorney Marios Rush; Turner by CAA and Independent Talent Group; and Harington by UTA, United Agents and Jackoway Austen Tyerman. [Source]

Kit Harington Producing TV Series Described As A “Very British Western”

Kit Harington is producing a TV thriller described as a “very British Western,” about a hotshot who discovers his family is running a drugs racket.

Empire of Dirt [working title] is being produced by Harington and Top Boy scribe Daniel West’s Thriker Films with Des producer New Pictures. Cast is unconfirmed and Harington could yet play the lead.

The eight-part thriller follows Jake, a big name in the big city who reluctantly returns to his family farm in the Lake District for a distant cousin’s wedding.

He hasn’t been home for 15 years but following a tragic accident finds himself the unwilling head of his family, before discovering the unthinkable, that his father had been running a multimillion-pound drugs racket from a hidden corner of his family land.

Harington and West said the show, which is part-funded and distributed by associate developer All3Media International, is a “very British Western, set against the Lake District’s stunning visual backdrop.”

“The Galloways are a family fighting to survive, wrestling with their identity, trauma and the burden of inheritance, as ancient traditions collide with the mores of modern Britain,” they added.

New Pictures CEO Willow Grylls said the show is “thrilling, dangerous and fun, but always with a searing emotional core.”

Harington’s Thriker production vehicle was also behind BBC hit Gunpowder, which counted Harington as lead and West as EP. Harington just wrapped Village Roadshow, Macro and BK Studios movie Eternal Return. Last week, he opened up for the first time about how the fame he achieved while playing Jon Snow in HBO smash Game of Thrones caused him to struggle with mental health issues and alcoholism.

All3Media-owned New Pictures’ recent credits, meanwhile, include David Tennant-starring ITV hit Des, George Kay’s The Long Shadow and BBC/Netflix musical drama series Champion.

Empire of Dirt is developed in association with All3Media International, which is distributing. [Source]

At Milan Fashion Week, Kit Harington kickstarts his Industry revolution

The actor talks Fendi, changing fits and his next role in the world of finance bro drama

“My worst tendency, when it comes to style, is to be too classically British,” says Kit Harington over the phone from Milan, where he’s making a flying front row visit for fashion week. “Looking like a bit of an old fusty. I’ve been trying to push myself a bit more recently.”

As a certified Fendi Guy with access to the storied Roman house’s best and boldest, Harington has, over the last couple of the years, become something of an under-the-radar fit god. He’s a great wearer of trousers with a bit of volume. And then there’s adventurous tailoring that doesn’t veer into costume territory.

“I spent a long time for going for the exact same type of suit at every event I went to, much to the despair of many fashion houses. Fendi moved me out of that comfort zone. I wore a suit of theirs a couple of years ago that was very comfortable and I was happy in it, which was the start of a new phase for me.”

Part of that new-found menswear confidence arrived naturally, with a bit of age and experience. “I think I have more of of that ‘fuck it’ attitude now,” says Kit Harington. “I guess in my 20s there was a feeling of not wanting to rock the boat too much, but now I hope that my trajectory in life is to become one of those crazily dressed old people. Incredible style and hurtling towards the end of their life and thinking, ‘Why not?’ That’s the trajectory that I’m on.”

After years spent in the pressure cooker of Sunday night prestige TV, Harington is enjoying some time exploring different avenues, playing kings on stage and practicing his studiously detached front row face. “I am finding it increasingly interesting,” he says. “I’m a restless person so that intense, 10 minute performance element of a fashion show fits that feeling. It’s amazing to see how much work and creative effort goes into each side of it.”
