Some actors are so good at playing their roles, they become one in the eyes of the public. Game of Thrones star Kit Harington is rose to fame when his character Jon Snow became a household name after the show’s tremendous success. However, playing the role for nearly a decade hasn’t been easy for the 34-year-old actor.

In a promotional interview for the series Modern Love, Kit talked to PTI about his career plans. He said, “I’m terrible at answering this question because I never really got much of a plan. I just go where the writing looks good and the thing works with my life. And I try and pick the parts that I find interesting.”

“I did this (Modern Love) because it was a bit lighter. You know, for 10 years I did possibly the least comic character on TV. Like literally could not crack a joke. And when they did give me a joke, it just didn’t work. So, doing something like Modern Love, where there’s a bit of humour and lightness, just felt like a very refreshing thing to do.”

“I love the anthology stuff. This is an anthology piece. I did Criminal, which I loved. I’m doing another piece of this, which is quite similar.

“It kind of gives me the opportunity to jump in, tell this little story and get out. And then that little tiny chamber piece exists and hopefully speaks to people. But it’s very manageable,” Harington said.

It is always a delight to see our favourite Game of Thrones stars on other shows. Game of Thrones star Tobias Menzies, who played Edmure Tully on the show, has teamed up with Sophie Okonedo for Amazon’s Modern Love Season 2.

The duo plays divorced parents trying to reignite a lost flame in the second season of the show. In a recent interview with Collider, Menzies explains why he was drawn to the script of Modern Love.

“I read the article and listened to the podcast, which is a reading of the article as well, and got the vibe of the New York Times article itself. That’s where I started. We’re doing a dramatization, but it was nonfiction when it was published, so it’s this couple’s real life. That inherently drew me into it.”

When he was asked about his experience working with Sophie, he said, “She’s really one of the best actors I’ve worked with. She is really authentic, very honest about stuff, and really insists that it happens in front of the camera. You can’t fake it, which is a really galvanizing, energizing thing to be around. It’s exciting.”

“We had a similar way of working. We were both interested in digging into the script with Kieran [Carney] and John [Carney], in the week or two leading up to it, and talking about possible changes or whether there was stuff that we could cut, and they were open to that too. That side of it, I definitely find that helpful, as a way into material where there could be some push and pull and some conversation around the actual material itself. You never quite know when you head into these things, but it was a pretty happy collaboration.”

Game of Thrones was a highly controversial show, and its final season even more so. It has been two years since the series wrapped up filming, and people still talk about it to this day. Some of the fans reacted quite extremely towards the finale, framing it as ‘a betrayal to the soul of Game of Thrones and its characters’. However, we have to keep in mind, for a show that went way past its source material, and that has been running for so long, it wouldn’t have been possible to make everyone happy, as quoted by various cast members of the show on various occasions.

However, Kit Harington, who played everyone’s favourite Jon Snow, was saddened by such strong reactions to the Game of Thrones finale. In an interview with USA Today, he said:

There’s definitely a pain when people responded in certain ways to it, but I don’t know what I was expecting. It’s very difficult to finish anything that is that long. People will always have their opinions and feel let down or disagree with certain things. I’m still very proud of the whole thing. My process since finishing that show is learning to be proud of what we did. The fact that some people were upset with the ending just shows how much it impacted people, and that’s a wonderful thing. I’m still processing it all, but I’m proud of it.”

Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is fast on its way for a possible early release in 2022. It is one of the topmost priority projects being developed by HBO currently, and they are going all-in for making it a huge success. The prequel series has created a huge hype so far, with fans demanding more spinoff shows to look forward to. Many of them wished to see Kit Harington’s character Jon Snow return to the TV screens once more, in one of the spinoffs. But it doesn’t seem likely that he’ll return any time soon in the foreseeable future.

In a recent interview with USA Today, Kit Harington talked about Game of Thrones spinoffs including the upcoming prequel House of The Dragon. He said, “There have been no discussions, God knows. I’m really looking forward to seeing “House of the Dragon.” I’m a really big fan of Miguel (Sapochnik, an executive producer and director), who’s doing that. I think there’s going to be a rawness about watching it for me, feeling so emotionally attached to that series. But I’m going to watch it because I want to support his work and I wish the people continuing that story the best of luck.”
