Kit Harington is definitely one of the UK up and coming theatre actors, and his role of Jon Snow in Game of Thrones definitely sets him up for a strong move over into TV and film.
Kit has done little TV and film work to date, but has one theatre credit to his name which is taking the lead in the National Theatre and west end production War Horse.
The show has been a great hit winning an Olivier Award, Evening Standard Theatre Award and London Critics’ Circle Theatre award and being watched by the Queen Elizabeth and her racist hubby. It has now become the most successful national theatre play ever.
Kit plays the role of Albert Narracott who is one of the two leads in the play the other being a puppet horse. The role is the major human one in the play and in performing such Kit has been to a large extent a significant part of plays success. He was not part of the cast in its original run at the national theatre, but has been part of the 8 month run in the west end of London.
His only Film credit is on a independent UK film Greys Inbetween in which he played the role of Sebastian, which is the supporting role, but beyond that little is known of either the role or kit.
Apart form the above Kit is a little bit of mystery and apart from his age of 22, little else in known about him at the moment.
