Did you have to audition for the part of Jon Snow?Yeah. First of all, I did it in a tiny little room with a camera. That’s how it works. I remember the exact scene I read. It was the scene with Tyrion in Episode 1. I still have my original printed out audition scene somewhere. I had three auditions. With Thrones, I was fresh off the boat from drama school and, essentially, they were auditioning every young Brit in the UK. And, for whatever reason, the producers spotted me on the second audition and said, “This guy looks upset enough to play Jon Snow.” – Kit Harington(x)
Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.
