On screen he might play the King of the North Jon Snow, but it seems that outside the world of Westeros, Kit Harrington’s main power-grab is for the Iron Throne of viral banter – or so it appear from his recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
As part of a segment on the show, Harington ‘auditioned’ for the roles of Cersei, Arya, Ygritte, Hodor, Daenerys, a White Walker, and… Harry Potter.
Watch it all here:
He began: “In the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to have sex with my brother.”
He then did his best impression of Arya Stark before wearing an oversized parka and red wig for Ygritte and delivering the infamous line: “You know nothing, Jon Snow,” before shooting an arrow straight at the cameraman.
Trying his best to imitate Daenerys Targaryen, he said: “Why hello Khal Drogo, would you like to see my dragons?,” before opening his silk white robe to display a pair of faux breasts.
Finally he appeared as Harry Potter. “I have been accepted into the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardary,” he said.
A voice can then be heard saying: “Harry Potter is not in Game of Thrones.”
Kit answered: “What if he was?” then ripped open his cloak to reveal prosthetic boobs.
Well, with the first episode of the seventh series of the due for release on July 16, HBO released the episode titles and details for each of the first three episodes earlier this week.

Part one of seven in the latest series, or episode 61 overall, is entitled ‘Dragonstone’. The description reads: “Jon (Kit Harington) organises the defence of the North. Cersei (Lena Headey) tries to even the odds. Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) comes home.”
Episode 62 is called ‘Stormborn’. It teases: “Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) receives an unexpected visitor. Jon (Kit Harington) faces a revolt. Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) plans the conquest of Westeros.”
The final clue that has been released to us is in episode three, ‘The Queen’s Justice’: “Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) holds court. Cersei (Lena Headey) returns a gift. Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) learns from his mistakes.”
I can’t wait.
