JON Snow has come a long way since he was introduced as the Bastard of Winterfell in series one. The brooding northerner has gone from outcast to hero and after being named King of the North he recently discovered that he is also heir to the Iron Throne. Jon's story on the show started in Winterfell where he was raised as Ned Stark's bastard. But he always felt like an outsider and decided to leave Winterfell to become a member of the Night’s Watch. At The Wall Jon killed a Wight and saved Lord Commander Mormont’s life. He accompanied the Watch marching beyond the Wall in force to find the missing Benjen Stark. At the Fist of the First Men they ambushed wilding watchers and Jon hesitated to kill a young woman named Ygritte. They soon fell for each other - and enjoyed some sweet loving in a cave. But it's not meant to be and when the wildlings attacked during the Battle of Castle Black, she died in Jon's arms. After letting the wildlings through Castle Black and into the … [Read more...] about How Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow went from the Bastard of Winterfell to dragon-flying Targaryen prince

KIT Harington has become THE face of Game of Thrones since landing the part of Jon Snow. Here's everything you need to know about the leading man of Westeros. Who is Kit Harington? Kit Harington, born Christopher Catesby Harington, was born in 1986 on Boxing Day and raised in Acton, London. His parents are playwright Deborah Catesby and Sir David Richard Harington, 15th baronet and businessman. The star started focusing on his craft at sixth form, studying drama and theatre before attending the Central School of Speech and Drama at the age of 18. Despite playing a powerful and brilliant warrior in Game of Thrones, Kit is actually a bit shorter than many people might think. He is only 5ft 7in (170.2cm) - not that it stops him from standing tall on the battlefield. Kit was reported to earn nearly £1m an episode during the latest series of the HBO hit. Who does Kit play in Game of Thrones? On the HBO fantasy series, Kit plays Jon Snow - the so-called "bastard" son of … [Read more...] about How old is Kit Harington, when did Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow actor marry Rose Leslie and how tall is he?
12 minutes ago Seven hells, this Game of Thrones: Special Victims Unit show needs to really happen! Kit Harington (Jon Snow) hosted Saturday Night Live last night and SNL went ALL IN with Game of Thrones. No shocker there, since GoT's final Season 8 is premiering next Sunday, April 14. The Thrones love started right in Kit's monologue -- which had cameos from several GoT stars -- and continued through the hilarious "New HBO Shows" sketch. That spoof showed off the network's upcoming Game of Thrones prequels, sequels, and spinoffs. The HBO sketch saved one of the best gags for last, no only teasing Game of Thrones: Special Victims Unit but bringing in real Law & Order: SVU stars Mariska Hargitay and Ice-T -- in full Westeros attire -- to showcase a scene from the spinoff. It's genius, check it out: Law & Order: Special Victims Unit was just renewed for Season 21, making it the longest-running primetime live-action series ever. It kind of seems like it has been airing … [Read more...] about Watch Law And Order: SVU Stars Cameo On SNL In Game Of Thrones Spinoff Spoof
54 seconds ago It turns out Sophie Turner is not the only Game of Thrones star who has confided how the series ends. Kit Harington said he revealed the show's ending to his wife and former Thrones co-star Rose Leslie. What happened next? She stopped speaking to him. Harington said: Be careful what you ask for -- and apparently being the one to provide answers. Kit Harington (Jon Snow) learned that shoot-the-messenger lesson the hard way. At least it was only three days and not more. That's still rough, though. The actor shared the amusing anecdote with KISS FM’s morning show, per EW. It is hard to know what to make of Rose Leslie's (Ygritte) reaction. Was she happy or sad about what Kit Harington told her? It can't be that great if she gave her husband the silent treatment over the news. Either way, Harington has weighed in on how he feels about the Game of Thrones ending. Here's what he said: Satisfaction is definitely not a bad sign. It is interesting that Kit … [Read more...] about Kit Harington Told Rose Leslie How Game Of Thrones Ends And She Stopped Speaking To Him
