Game of Thrones star Kit Harington rose to fame with his role Jon Snow, and has become a household name ever since.  Harington has come a long way ever since, playing iconic roles in several anthology series, and is recently making headlines with his role in the upcoming MCU movie Eternals. Game of Thrones fans are doubly excited for the film, as Harington and his on-screen brother from the HBO fantasy Richard Madden (Robb Stark) both play an important role in the film. Harington owes it all to his time on Game of Thrones, as it prepared him for a great future ahead.

Talking to Variety for an exclusive interview, the Game of Thrones star said, “I saw [“Game of Thrones” co-showrunner] Dan Weiss the other day. We had coffee, and I was saying to him, and he said to me — well, I won’t say what he said to me, but he felt similarly. But what “Thrones” enables you to feel is a sort of freedom. I did the thing, you know? It’s cool, I’ve got that. I have freedom now that I’m going to enjoy whatever it is I do.”

“It’s not that I don’t have ambition, but I have a kind of happiness that if things go well, great. If they don’t, I did that thing. So that’s where I’m at. And I feel that what something like being part of the Marvel Universe enables you to do, like “Thrones” did for me, is that you have this thing that you hopefully return to and can develop. And on the side, you can do all sorts of things that are the polar opposite. A little movie with no budget. Or the next thing I’m doing: I’m going off and playing “Henry V” in London in one of my favorite theaters. And this allows me to do that.”
