‘Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow Spinoff Was Kit Harington’s Idea, George R.R. Martin Helped Shape Story

The world got a surprise June 16 with the news that HBO is in early development on a “Game of Thrones” sequel series centered on Jon Snow (Kit Harington), but that was hardly news for Emilia Clarke. The actor revealed to BBC that her longtime co-star Harington confided in her that he was in talks to continue playing Jon Snow on a spinoff series. Both Harington and Clarke starred on all eight seasons of the original HBO fantasy series.

“He has told me about it. And I know it exists. It’s happening,” Clarke said. “It’s been created by Kit as far as I can understand, so he’s in it from the ground up. So what you will be watching, hopefully, if it happens, is certified by Kit Harington.”

“Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin confirmed the Jon Snow series in a June 23 blog post, writing the show is being developed under the working title “Snow.” Martin will be involved in the series in the same capacity he is with all of the “Thrones” spinoffs. The author said Harington met with him at his home in Santa Fe and worked with him and his team to “hammer” out the show’s story.

“Yes, it was Kit Harrington who brought the idea to us,” Martin said. “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.”

‘Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow Sequel Series in Development at HBO

Kit Harington is attached to reprise his fan-favorite role in the first potential ‘Thrones’ project to take place after the events in the original series.

You know nothing about HBO’s post-Game of Thrones plans.

The network has entered into early development on its first sequel to its blockbuster fantasy drama: A live-action spinoff series centered on the fan-favorite character Jon Snow, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Kit Harington is attached to reprise the role should a series move forward. The actor was twice nominated for an Emmy for his portrayal of an action hero who struggles to uphold his family’s noble values in a brutal world.

In Thrones’ eighth-and-final season, Jon Snow discovered his true name was Aegon Targaryen, a potential heir to the Iron Throne. In the series finale, he was exiled from Westeros and journeyed North of the Wall with the Wildlings to leave his old life behind.

Since completing his work across eight seasons of Thrones, Harington has appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, co-starring in 2021’s Eternals. He also recently starred in the title role in the National Theater’s live production of Henry V. On Thrones, the actor was known for enduring some of the show’s most grueling filming, including the final season’s infamous 11 weeks of winter night shoots in Northern Ireland.

The development signals an intriguing new direction in HBO’s handling of author George R.R. Martin’s fantasy universe, a move not unlike Disney+’s management of its Star Wars and Marvel brands where the streamer has found success launching character-focused sequel series such as WandaVision (starring Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (with Ewan McGregor reprising his iconic role).

Kit Harington Signs With UTA

Actor-producer Kit Harington (Game of Thrones, Gunpowder) has signed with UTA for representation in all areas.

Harington broke out in 2011 in the starring role of Jon Snow on HBO’s critically-acclaimed, Emmy winning fantasy series, Game of Thrones, based on the A Song of Ice and Fire novel series by George R. R. Martin. Over the course of the show’s eight-season run, the part brought him seven Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, two Emmy nominations, and noms at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards, among other accolades.

Harington most recently appeared in Marvel’s Eternals, the hit Amazon series Modern Love and Netflix’s Criminal: UK. In 2018, he exec produced and starred alongside Peter Mullan, Mark Gatiss and Liv Tyler in the HBO Max miniseries Gunpowder, which had him portraying his real-life ancestor, Catholic rebel Robert Catesby.

The actor has also appeared in films including the HBO sports mockumentary 7 Days in Hell, the Sony Pictures Classics drama Testament of Youth and the big-screen adaptation of the hit British spy series Spooks: The Greater Good. He also lent his voice to the animated film How to Train Your Dragon 2, which won the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film and secured an Academy Award nomination in 2014.

Harington studied at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London and made his stage debut as Albert Narracott in the hit production War Horse. He also previously appeared in Laura Wade’s Posh at the Royal Court Theatre in London and recently starred in an adaptation of Sam Shepard’s modern classic True West on the West End. He will return to the stage this spring to star as Henry V in a modern rendition of William Shakespeare’s play of the same name at the Donmar Warehouse, which was conceived as a provocative meditation on patriotism, nationalism, and England’s relationship with Europe.

Harington continues to be represented by United Agents and attorney Karl Austen. [Source]

’90 Church’: Kit Harington and Dave Bautista To Star in Netflix’s Narcotic Drama

We’ve learned Netflix is teaming up with Screen Arcade and Grand Electric for a brand new TV show adapting the 2013 Dean Unkefer novel 90 Church: The True Story of the Narcotics Squad from Hell.

The series is set to adapt former agent Dean Unkefer’s best-selling book that tells the “real story of a young agent’s downward slide into hell as he falls victim to addiction, deception, violence, and shifting loyalties.”

Like the book, the hour-long series will be set in New York City where the newly formed Federal Bureau of Narcotics was established on 90 Church Street. The Bureau was often looked over despite them going toe-to-toe with a well-organized Mafia and vicious drug cartel.

It’s not the first time the book has been eyed for adaptation. It’s been previously reported that Breaking Bad writer George Mastras would be leading the project at Universal. That was back in August 2013 and since then, the project went dark.

Who’s starring in 90 Church for Netflix?

Kit Harington and Dave Bautista are the two main cast members so far both of which will be series leads.

Kit Harington (Game of Thrones, Eternals) is on board to play Daniel Danvers. Danvers is a brand new agent to the Federal Bureau of Narcotics having been rejected from the FBI over a failed Psych exam. He has high ambitions and his expectations are rocked by the methods at play in the FBN.

Dave Bautista (Dune, Netflix’s Army of the Dead) is on board to play Micahel Crecci. Crecci is a veteran agent at the FBN who doesn’t play by the rules and takes Daniel under his wing.

Production on Netflix’s 90 Church is thought to begin in 2022. [Source]

Kit Harington on Letting His Son Watch His NSFW Game of Thrones Scenes

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. Continue reading  »

The series, which is now in production, tells stories of how the upcoming changes to the planet will affect love, faith, work and family on a personal and human scale.

It comes from Michael Ellenberg’s Media Res with Burns as writer, director and exec producer. Ellenberg, Greg Jacobs, Dorothy Fortenberry and Lindsey Springer also exec produce.

“The only thing we know for sure about the future is that we are all going there together— and we’re taking with us our hopes, our fears, our appetites, our creativity, our capacity for love and our predilection to cause pain,” said Burns. “These are the same tools that storytellers have been using since the beginning of time. Our show is just using them to keep time from running out.”

Streep’s role has not been disclosed, but Miller will play marine biologist Rebecca Shearer, Harington plays Nicholas Bilton, the CEO of an industrial giant, Rahim plays Ezra Haddad, a man struggling with memory loss, Rhys stars as Junior, a real estate developer, Diggs is Marshall Zucker, a Rabbi in South Florida, Chan plays Natasha Alper, a single mother and micro-finance banker, Schwimmer stars as Harris Goldblatt, a father to a teenage daughter, and Gourav will play Gaurav, a driver for hire.

Kit Harington Says ‘Game of Thrones’ “Directly” Led to His Mental Health Issues

Kit Harington has opened up about the toll Game of Thrones took on his mental health, revealing he had to take a year off after the HBO epic concluded.

Speaking recently on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show, the 34-year-old actor said the “nature” of the violent, intense, emotional series “directly” broke him down in reality.

“I went through some mental health difficulties after Thrones, and during the end of Thrones, to be honest,” Harington told Cagle. “I think it was directly due to the nature of the show and what I had been doing for years.”

Harington said he made the decision to take a break after Game of Thrones to “really concentrate on myself,” adding, “I’m really happy I did that.”

Harington starred as Jon Snow on the series, which turned into a cultural obsession, running for eight seasons.

It was widely reported that in May 2019 — that same month Game of Thrones ended — Harington checked into a mental health and wellness facility to seek help for “some personal issues.”

“Just when I was wanting to come back to work the pandemic hit,” he said of moving onward. The actor recently filmed an episode of Modern Love, the second season of which hits Amazon Prime on Friday, just for the sake of fun, he said.

“You don’t have to live in that intense place all the time,” Harington said. “Why don’t you do something that takes the weight off? Why don’t you do something fun?”

Next up, Harington will star Marvel’s Eternals, due in theaters Nov. 5. [Source]

Kit Harington to play Henry V at the Donmar Warehouse

Game of Thrones star will appear in production focusing on modern political power, part of the London theatre’s reopening season

Kit Harington is to star as Shakespeare’s Henry V in a modern-day staging that examines the corrupting influence of power and “leadership in a time of crisis”.

The production will be presented in February next year at a newly renovated Donmar Warehouse in London, whose artistic director, Michael Longhurst, has planned a reopening season of plays exploring the individual’s role within society. Harington, best known as Jon Snow in the TV juggernaut Game of Thrones, has already been seen in the realm of “fantasy leadership”, said Longhurst. As Henry V, he will explore “modern political power and the psychology behind that”. The show will be directed by Max Webster, whose acclaimed Life of Pi transfers to the West End later this year.

Webster is “not interested in a production that has boys waggling swords”, said Longhurst. “We are, rightly, really looking at our leadership in a time of crisis and how it steps up or doesn’t, and how power can corrupt and what it means to have a privileged white man running a country that is much more diverse than that. And also, of course, our relationship with those across the Channel feels absolutely relevant right now – and unification is a theme running though Henry V.” Continue reading  »

“We’re so excited to bring a second season of this series to life, and give an opportunity to really shine a light on what matters most,” said Carney. “With so much uncertainty in our current world, these stories bring truth and love to people everywhere, and I’m so appreciative to be a part of making that happen.” Continue reading  »

Why Kit Harington Had to Use a Body Double For THAT Scene on ‘Game of Thrones’

The eight-season run of Game of Thrones featured a world with plenty of violence and debauchery. In the midst of it all, numerous actors bared all on camera for a multitude of different reasons.

But for star Kit Harington, showing off his naked bum during season 3 wasn’t an option. Instead, he used a body double in THAT scene for a very specific reason.

‘Game of Thrones’ was Kit Harington’s first TV acting credit

Before he landed the role of Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, the only credits Harington had on his resume were two theatre roles from London’s Central West End. Harington starred in War Horse in 2008 and 2009, and in Posh in 2010.

Despite his lack of experience, Harington was able to snag a leading role in what would become the biggest TV show on the planet. It made him a star almost overnight, but he told GQ in 2014 that he never saw himself as a leading man.

“I didn’t really think I’d be a leading man in any respect whatsoever,” Harington confessed. “At drama school in my third year I was resigned to the fate of being Young Male Rape Victim No. 2. That was the kind of category I was put in. I’ve got a very baby face underneath all of this fuzz.”

His baby face, though, was a big factor in Harington getting the role. At the beginning of George R. R. Martin’s books, Jon Snow is around the age of 14. This is how the showrunners asked him to play the character in the pilot.

But when he tried to pass as a teenager while being in his early 20s, it didn’t work. Producers told Harington that he was too clean cut and he needed to grow his hair and beard. Continue reading  »
