Kit Harington is returning to the West End in the autumn after a two-year break.
The actor, will play a strait-laced Hollywood screenwriter in True West, by Sam Shepard, at the Vaudeville Theatre from November. Rising star Johnny Flynn will play his unstable elder brother. Previously Harington was in Doctor Faustus at the Duke of York’s.
The production will be directed by Matthew Dunster, who directed Martin McDonagh’s hit play Hangmen, which also starred Flynn.
Currently filming the final scenes of Game Of Thrones, he told the Daily Mail that his role of Jon Snow had “whipped away” his chance of a theatre career.
But he said he would miss the fantasy show: “I keep bursting into tears. We’ve all spent nine, nearly ten years together, and the final goodbye is more than a hug.”

The production team behind HBO’s blockbuster “Game of Thrones” will be given the BAFTA Special Award at this year’s British Academy Television Craft Awards.
Hannah Murray and John Bradley from the hit series will collect the award on behalf of the team. BAFTA said the accolade is recognition of the boundaries that have been pushed across all areas of production in the making of the fantasy epic.
Filming is underway on the eighth and final six-episode season of “Game of Thrones,” which will air in 2019. HBO is working on several potential spinoffs.
The award also recognizes the support that “Game of Thrones” has provided for high-end TV production in the U.K., BAFTA said. The show has filmed across various locations in Northern Ireland and set up a production headquarters at Titanic Studios in Belfast, the Northern Irish capital, which has been a base for the series since the pilot.
Speaking on behalf of the production team, executive producers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff said in a statement: “Many, many people work insanely hard to create any film or television show. They are creators every bit as much as actors, writers, producers or directors, and deserve to be recognized as such.”
“The craft behind what is one of the most popular dramas of our time is nothing short of incredible, from the breath-taking location shots to the intricately designed costumes and set pieces, and not forgetting the level of detail from the makeup and prosthetics team, to name a few,” added Krishnendu Majumdar, chair of BAFTA’s television committee. “Huge congratulations to everyone involved.”
The BAFTA Craft Awards take place on April 22 in London. They will be live streamed on YouTube and Twitter. [Source]
