Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington talks about his low-key birthday celebrations


While Game of Thrones is one of the most popular TV series of all time, its stars still seem to manage to lead a fairly normal life, now and then. We have seen stars going all-out with their birthday celebrations, but for Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, things seem to be quite the opposite. In an interview with WMagazine, Kit talked about his low-key birthday celebrations.

Kit Harington turned 30 on December 26. However, as it would happen to any normal person, having a birthday right after Christmas dampens the celebrations. Kit told WMagazine how his birthday celebrations are fairly ordinary, like the rest of us.

To start off, Kit just says :

“My birthday’s the day after Christmas. So it’s always,… the same!

My family just descends on my birthday, so I get no attention. So, I always end up getting really grumpy, and selfish on my birthday.”

Kit then said that it’s always the same every year, with him being home with his parents, and going down to the local pub to knock down a few drinks with his pals. Check out the video, below :

Kit also said that he gets no attention on his birthday, and that the gifts get worse every year. He said :

“They get worse each year I find. I think I got a Harry Potter Cluedo set last year. A, I’m not 10 years old and B, that is just such a token effort, mom and dad.”

On other note, Kit’s character in the series, Jon Snow, has had quite a season. He was brought back to life from the dead, then teamed up with his long lost sibling, Sansa Stark, to take down Ramsay Bolton once and for all, while getting his true parentage revealed at the end of the season, which proved our long standing theory that he was not Ned Stark’s bastard, but rather his nephew.

Its going to get better, with the White Walkers walking in, and winter being finally here. Looks like Kit is going to have a bomb of a season.

Here’s to hoping his birthday presents are better next year, because he seems to be doing a really good job on the show, and he certainly deserves a few good gifts!
