Some actors like rom coms, some are constantly wielding a gun, but this actor just can’t seem to stay away from the period pieces, with crazy costumes and lots of sword play.
Game Of Thrones Star Kit Harington has been doing more lately than just helping out the Night’s Watch. Personally, I’ll always think of him only as Jon Snow, but Kit Harington also has a new movie coming out tomorrow called Pompeii. Pompeii has just as much old school sword fighting action as Game Of Thrones apparently, so I guess it’s worth a shot.
Pompeii is about an ancient Italian town destroyed by a volcanic eruption, and Kit plays the leading man. Up until now he’s only done supporting work, so this was definitely different for him. ”It’s terrifying now because, as the lead actor, you start looking at the film and wondering how it’s going to do, or if it’s going to help your career or where it’s going to send you, as the lead. The really good things about it are how immersed you become in the filming and how much a part of the crew you become.”
I’m pumped that Kit landed a leading role. The fact that he’s a super buff, shirtless, gladiator man in the film helps too. I like him in these rough, brooding roles. They suit him well. Still, I’m getting excited to have Jon Snow back, and Kit seems excited too.
“It’s the most expensive season they’ve ever done, there’s probably one of the most expensive episodes of television ever made within it, and whereas some seasons have been impact seasons, where something unexpected happens, this is a full-blown action season.” That’s what I like to hear. Bring on the action, and bring on Jon! I mean, Kit. Whatever.
