Kit Harington's Plans After 'Game of Thrones'? 'I'd Like a Few Years of Relative Obscurity'

Kit Harington is looking so sexy in the cover shoot for Esquire‘s June/July 2017 story.

Here’s what the 30-year-old Game of Thrones star had to share with the mag:

On feeling uncertain about the rest of his career after Game of Thrones: “Thrones nicely bookended my twenties, but I’m thirty now. Maybe I can reinvent myself and get away from an image that’s so synonymous with Thrones. But maybe this was the role I was always meant to play and that was it.”

On what he plans to do post-Thrones: “I don’t really aim to get into that next big Oscar film. That’s not really my route….[I] might do a comedy next….I’ll enjoy the madness quieting a bit. I’d like a few years of relative obscurity.”

Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss on why Harington works for the part: “He just had the look. The brooding intensity; the physical grace; the chip-on-the-shoulder quality that we always associate with extraordinarily short people.” (Kit is five-foot-six.)
