Kit Harington

Having made a name for himself playing Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, British actor Kit Harington now appears on the big screen, though still wielding a sword, in Paul W.S. Anderson’s Pompeii.

We asked the actor about his own sword-fighting credentials, and why he now hopes on making a film set in the future, having shot so much set in the past. He also tells us about getting in shape for the part, why he keeps sharing screen time with horses, and his experiences on How to Train Your Dragon 2.

Pompeii is released on April 30th.
