Kit Harington is best known as Jon Snow for Game of Thrones but it looks like the actor could fare well taking on other roles. A lot of things can happen with the craziest of wardrobes and a touch of make-up and most of that was revealed via an audition tape shown on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Game of Thrones producers Dan Weiss and David Benioff apparently had the audition tape and somehow, Jimmy Kimmel was able to get it and share the never-before-seen footage which can be viewed below.
Kit Harington auditions exposed
It seems a bit hard to see how Kit Harington can portray other characters but it does show how resilient he was as far as joining the Game of Thrones. The surprise revelation comes just before the premiere of season 7, where some of the characters got a bit of a push with the audition tape.
As one can see in the video footage, Harington also auditioned for the roles of Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey), Aria Stark (Maisie Williams), Ygritte (Rose Leslie), Hodor (Kristian Nairn), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and a White Walker. Ironically, Cersei was mentioned in a previous post as the character Harington may finally come face-to-face with.
Other than that audition tape, spoilers for the seventh season of Game of Thrones was wisely fended away by Harington. Kimmel tried to pull a fast one, asking Harington when he would be back shooting, EOnline reported. “That was sly! I don’t know. I don’t know if I’m back in the show. I can’t tell you!”
Kimmel on the offensive
Wise to the antics of Kimmel, Harington played it safe since he could get into trouble for spilling some details for the upcoming season. Instead, the actor shared how they were continuously followed by a lot of paparazzi when they were in Spain. So how about those stolen shots?
It seems that Harington and company were wise to the strategy and admitted that they rendered fake scenes. With leaked photos coming out once in a while on the Internet, Harington adds that some might be true and some not. The fake scenes filmed allegedly took about five hours each.
Hence, Game of Thrones fans may want to re-think their expectations as far as things to come for the seventh season. Kit Harington may be playing coy so the best way is to stay tuned and see what goes down this coming season. Check out that celebrated segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live! below.
