Game of Thrones star Kit Harington is featured in the October 2016 issue of August Man Magazine Singapore.
From the digital issue:
Kit Karington wasn’t always destined to be a movie star. Born in London, the son of a playwright and businessman he pursued acting as a hobby. “I don’t remember having the idea of being an actor,” he says. “But when I looked at old school reports it was clearly written that I wanted to be an actor. I’ve always enjoyed performing, I didn’t realize I could make a living out it.”
It started with him attending drama school, the Central School of Speech and Drama in London. “It really prepared you to go onstage, I enjoyed it,” he says. How does acting on a stage compare to performing in front of a camera? “TV and theater are two completely different jobs,” he says.
He is really content with having Game of Thrones as his main vehicle. “It’s the thing I’m known for, it’s my superhero movie. I don’t need another one. I get to return to a character that I love playing,” he says.
Game of Thrones returns with new episodes in 2017.
