Kit Harington Talks Girlfriend, Facebook & Twitter
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.
