In a recent interview with Variety, Harington said, “I don’t think you get to choose when these things come along. Like, if Marvel calls up, and they say, we’ve got this interesting character for you, would you be interested in being in this movie…? I mean, my process was it’d been about a year and a half since I’d filmed “Thrones.” It seemed like an interesting character and an amazing universe, and that seemed like a no brainer to me.”

“I’ve got nothing against possibly long-running franchises and being in them. They’ve done very well for me! I’ve really enjoyed it. So it wasn’t a very difficult decision to make. Once I saw what they were planning with this — the director, it’s Marvel, the character’s cool — it was pretty easy decision.”

When asked about his reunion with Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, Madden replied, “It was great, again. It was that kind of thing, if you’re just there chatting with your buddy, and then God I gotta get on set and do acting! Together, with you! This is strange but again just joyous.

MCU’s latest movie Eternals is closing in, and fans all over the world are looking forward to witnessing a little Game of Thrones union onscreen. Game of Thrones alums Richard Madden and Kit Harington are playing important roles in the movie, and we can’t wait for them to act together once again. And meeting his old friend was surely emotional for Harington, it was like a college reunion for him.

“Extra” Special Correspondent Samantha Harris spoke with Kit Harington at the Los Angeles premiere of Eternals, where he discussed reuniting with his Game of Thrones co-star Richard Madden on the movie. He said, “It did feel like that. I mean I’ve known him for what like 10 – 13 years or something is it? And then so working together on this was pretty special. We didn’t get a lot in Game of Thrones. That’s the thing. We didn’t get a lot in this. S0 if you actually added up our screen time together it’s very little. But our friendship time is a lot more.”

Talking to Variety about the same, Harington said, “We had a big hug. We’ve been close friends for a long time. We had a shared experience of “Game of Thrones” in the first three seasons — the three seasons that Richard was in — where it sort of blew up and became this Goliath of a show. And, you know, we were both 23. We’d kind of came up together and that creates quite a special bond. So actually, we have a very close friendship, but screen time doesn’t reflect that.”

In an interview with Insider, the actor explained, “There’s emotion connected to that for me. I think to see people get into outfits and costumes, that resemble what we wore for all those years, and it [has] the same music and style and tone, but not be in it is always going to feel — There’s going to be a rawness there.”

“Of course, I’m going to watch it and I’m going to support [co-showrunner] Miguel [Sapochnik], who’s helming the show,” Harington added. “I wish them all the best, but it’s so close to my heart, that story, that, of course, there might be a bit of pain there.”
