HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON THE HIDDEN WORLD
Born in London, KIT HARINGTON (Eret, Son of Eret) studied drama and theater at
the Central School of Speech & Drama, a constituent of the University of London.
Before graduating in 2008, he won the lead role of Albert in the Royal National
Theatre's London production of the smash hit War Horse. The production
transferred to London's West End at the New London Theatre, and he stayed with
the role until 2009, after which he appeared in Posh, by Laura Wade, at the
Royal Court Theatre in London.
This year, Harington will make his much-anticipated West End return in Sam
Shepard's modern classic, True West.
Since 2011, Harington has starred as Jon Snow in the critically acclaimed and
Emmy Award-winning HBO drama series Game of Thrones. With 38 Emmy Awards, Game
of Thrones is the most decorated show in the ceremony's history. In 2016, he
received his first Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actor in Drama Series.
In 2018, Harington transitioned into the role of executive producer on the
miniseries Gunpowder. Harington played his real-life ancestor on his mother's
side, Catholic rebel Robert Catesby, who was part of the Gunpowder Plot of
1605-the failed scheme by Roman Catholic militants to blow up the House of Lords
in London. The series also starred Peter Mullan, Mark Gatiss and Liv Tyler.
Past film projects include the HBO sports mockumentary 7 Days in Hell, Sony
Pictures Classics' drama Testament of Youth and the big-screen adaptation of the
hit British spy series Spooks: The Greater Good.
