Kit Harington Talks Girlfriend, Facebook & Twitter

Kit Harington Talks Girlfriend, Facebook & Twitter

Kit Harington, from HBO’s breakout series Game of Thrones, dons head-to-toe Marni in the fourth issue of Varón, on stands worldwide September 8.

Here’s what the 24-year-old British actor, aka Jon Snow, told the magazine’s Senior Editor Anders Christian Madsen:

On fame: “The [Game of Thrones] books have got a huge following for a start, so when I first got the role a little over a year and a half ago, I suddenly started getting a lot of Facebook requests. There was a lot of attention, because my role is quite coveted. That was bizarre at first and very flattering, but it’s not like I’m getting recognized on the street.”

On Twitter: “The whole Twitter thing kind of passed me by. I wouldn’t say I was a huge fan of Twitter. (Follow JustJared.com on Twitter @JaredEng and @JustJared!) At some point maybe I’ll set myself up an account, but I haven’t yet felt the need to. I find it more hassle than it’s worth, for me, I think.”

On meeting co-star Malcolm McDowell while filming 2012′s Silent Hill: Revelation: “I went for dinner with him. That was like a dream. He was one of the reasons I wanted to act. I watched If… and A Clockwork Orange over and over again when I was a kid. So having dinner with him was quite awe-inspiring.”

On whether or not he has a girlfriend: “No comment!”

We can’t wait for season of Game of Thrones! CAN’T. WAIT.

UPDATE: Added a great behind-the-scenes shot of Kit at the photo shoot!

Oh bless his little cotton socks!

If he grew up watching Clockwork Orange over and over again as a kid then he’s more disturbing than I thought

Wow, sack the stylist! Kit is gorgeous, yet they chose to clothe him the most hideous outfit? I mean what are those pants? Poor Kit.
Glad he hasn’t joined the Twitterverse, he would run screaming if he saw some of the thing’s on there haha

Kit is one of the best new actors I’ve seen in many years. Make no mistake, they’ve got the right guy in the Jon Snow role. I hope he continues to maintain his classy, low-keyed existence in the horrific world of “fame” and tabloid press. Should he ever make his way back into a theatrical production, I’d pay any price to see it. I wish him nothing but the best.

I like him better with his loose curls, but he looks good no matter what.

JJ, please post more of Kit Harington! All the GoT cast!
