Cast Member of the Month: Kit Harington

“I auditioned for Jon Snow in my own accent, and then when we got to filming the pilot, they asked all of Sean Bean’s sons to do Sean’s accent, so we had to go and learn it quickly. He found it funny that we were all doing his accent. He said we were all doing it well, which was quite nice to hear.”

I was going to study History at Birmingham, but I thought I’d see if I could get any more acting jobs through the workshop. I got a job at a cinema because I thought I’d watch loads of films and study actors, but once you’ve shoveled pop corn for ten hours, you’re not going to stay for another two, you just get the hell outta there! All my friends were at school having a great time and I was having a shit time, so I decided at the end of that year, I’d go to Birmingham. Only about a week after I’d sent off my accommodation forms, I got the part in Skins. That’s another nice thing about the workshop, over the years people like Samantha Morton, Toby Kebbell and more recently Jack O'Connell and Vicky McClure, we’ve all sort of grown up together in that group.
