Kit Harington is about to kick off his post-Game of Thrones career by appearing in a West End production of Sam Shepard play True West.

Talking before his appearance at Esquire Townhouse, the actor explained why he wants to back to the stage, how it was wrapping up the biggest TV show on earth and how he likes to dress (when not in furs).

What is your new play True West about?

Many things, depending on what you make of it. It’s about two brothers in their mother’s house, just outside of LA. Austin, my character, is a screenwriter who’s trying to get his movie script off the ground. He’s the straight-laced, conventional one – at least at the start. Lee, his brother, is a renegade, drifter, vagabond type – who’s putting Austin off writing his script. Really, it’s about two sides of one creative personality. I think they’re the same person.

You must have no shortage of offers after Game of Thrones. What made you go for this one?

I’ve always admired [director] Matthew Dunster’s work. That piqued my interest. Then the more I read the play, the more I was fascinated by Austin. It’s an amazing character and there’s an appeal doing a smaller, more contained play where the lead is shared between me and Johnny (Flynn). It’s almost a two hander.

How has your relationship with Johnny been?

It’s been brilliant. I didn’t know him before this. He’s quite a calm, thoughtful man which is good in a two-handed play of this intensity over a few months… If you don’t get on, it can be tough. We’ve met two or three times and already built good vibes.

What’s made you want to go back to doing theatre?

My first job was [the theatre production] War Horse. Then I did the pilot for Thrones, then [the play] Posh, then nothing until Faustus four or five years later. So there was an urge to get back and do it. There’s a drain somewhere that was blocked, and I needed to unblock it. I think you have to switch between theatre and film. For me, it’s essential. It works different muscles.

GQ’s Best Stuff visited with the GoT star to learn about all the stuff he can’t live without (including the herbal deodorant he thinks about while gazing into the distance).

Kit Harington is a man of impeccable taste. He loves worn-in leather travel bags, he loves his worn-in flat cap he travels with everywhere, he loves his worn-in wallet with worn-out old photos of family, past and present. He likes old stuff, basically. The classics. With his time as Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow coming to an end, Harington will soon be on the lookout for something new. He sat down with GQ to discuss the things he brings everywhere.

Not Enough to Look Sharp

“The Times crossword is trickier than some of the others. I don’t do the cryptic crossword. I don’t get those. Some of my friends do. But it’s just the normal crossword, but I find it’s a bit trickier than the Guardian one and I quite like the Times newspaper. I read The Guardian on my phone all the time—I like it but that’s pretty left-leaning, and I need something that’s a bit more middle-ground just to keep me not in one bubble. I just read the Times for a bit of neutral journalism.”

A Wallet That Can’t Fit in Your Pocket

“You’ve got all sorts of stuff in here. I’ve got a play that I’m doing next in there. I’ve got a little letter from my wife. I’ve got little pictures of me with mates. You can just slip your passport in. It’s just little things. My mum bought me this for Christmas once because she knows I like old, tattered things. I also think there’s something just nice about having these bits that never change in your life, this isn’t flooded with receipts or whatever else it’s just a place for… all kinds of important stuff.”

Take Note

“I love my notebooks. I do take notes on my iPhone but I prefer writing stuff down on paper. I find it disappears on here [holds up his phone] somehow. If your whole life is on here, which it is now, it’s not marking it any different from all the old, other stuff that’s on your phone. If you’re writing ideas and things down, you want it to be on a separate entity. I think that I’d always wanna be scribbling something, even if it’s just a doodle.”

The British actor will voice the character of Sir Gadabout in the one-off animated special, which will air on BBC One at Christmas. He is joined by Sir Lenny Henry, who narrates, Tracey Ullman, who voices Madame Dragon, W1A’s Hugh Skinner as Zog and Jamestown’s Patsy Ferran as Princess Pearl.

The special is based on the character written by The Gruffalo creators Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler and will be produced by Magic Light Pictures, which adapted that into a BBC hit.

Zog is a keen but accident-prone dragon who gets himself into mischief whilst learning how to fly, roar, breathe fire and fight knights in his first four years at dragon school. Each year he meets a kindly young girl who patches up his bumps and bruises, but can his latest friend help with his trickiest challenge yet: to capture a princess.

The special is directed by Max Lan, the Oscar-nominated director of Room on a Broom, and Stick Man co-director Daniel Snaddon. It is produced by Michael Rose and Martin Pope of Magic Light Pictures and the composer is Rene Aubry. Animation services have been provided by Triggerfish Animation in Cape Town.

It has been picked up for BBC One by Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content, and Elizabeth Kilgarriff, Senior Commissioning Editor, BBC Drama.

Kilgarriff said, “Magic Light Pictures are yet again promising the BBC audience a Christmas treat with Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s brilliant story of a dragon and princess who both dare to be different. To have such recognisable and wonderful voices bringing the characters to life is very exciting indeed.”

Michael Rose, co-founder Magic Light Pictures, added, “We love making films for the whole family to watch together at Christmas, and Zog is a treat – a wonderful witty story with delightful characters at its heart.” [Source]

The Game of Thrones star is the face of Dolce & Gabbana’s latest scent.

Kit Harington is a creative guy. Of course, you already know that if you’re familiar with his character Jon Snow on the ever-popular series Game of Thrones. It’s hard to imagine the man behind the character could be anything but. Still, he’d like to take it further. He’s dabbled in producing. He’d like to get into directing. If he could only figure out how to use Final Draft, he’d like to get into writing. And along with his stints outside of acting, he’s been working with Dolce & Gabbana fragrances—this round, on the new scent The One Grey.

We talked to the actor about switching between the acting and the fashion worlds, what he wears in his downtime, and why he believes GoT became so successful.

He finds working with D&G “joyful.”

I love working with Dolce & Gabbana because it’s fun and light. It’s quite glamorous. It’s this weird, opposing life you lead. If you’re lucky enough to be on a successful show like Thrones, you have these two worlds. On Thrones, I’m sitting in a tent on a rain-soaked field and I’m tired and I’m in heavy costumes. There’s nothing glamorous about the actual filming of it. But then you do something like this, and it’s the entire opposite. You’re in a penthouse apartment in New York. It’s a very pleasurable side of the job, and it’s exciting. It makes you feel glamorous. The campaign we shot in a piazza in Italy in Naples was joyful. I think sometimes,I find, it can be not like that. It can be too overly serious. With D&G, it seems they pride themselves on something Italian—something joyful, something loud. That’s been fun to do. Plus, the fragrance is equally light and fun.

His very first fragrance was Dolce & Gabbana.

You’re not going to believe me because it sounds like a line, but my first fragrance was Dolce & Gabbana. I can’t remember which one, but it was. It’s another reason why this [partnership] felt quite right. You know when you’re a teenage boy and your mom takes a sniff of you and goes, “Yep, you need to start wearing something.”? I remember that was the first time actually spending money on a scent. You stick with it for a long time; it becomes a trademark to you as a person.
