I was called Kit from day one, really, I only found out my name was Christopher when I was 11. It was very strange, I went to school, and I remember that you had to do these tests to find out what set you’re in—how clever you are. I put down “Kit Harington,” and they looked at me like I was completely stupid, and they said, “No, you’re Christopher Harington, I’m afraid.” It was only then I learnt my actual name. That was kind of a bizarre existential crisis for an 11-year-old to have, but in the end I always stuck with Kit, because I felt that’s who I was. I’m not really a “Chris.”

Happy 26th birthday Kit!

There’s a few ‘…Thrones’ people… I was in the pub the other day and a bunch of guys just kind of leaned over and said, ‘Oh, you’re in ‘Game of Thrones’?’ and we ended up chatting for a good hour about the show. It’s really nice for people to have a real, true enthusiasm for it, because my enthusiasm for the show is the same as a fan’s enthusiasm for the show… It’s a genuine passion for this thing that we’re making and it’s a really wholesome and fun thing to be able to share with people.”
