Everyone knows Kit Harington for his role as Jon Snow in Game of Thrones. But there’s probably a lot you don’t know about the London-born actor,
Let’s see some Crazy facts about him!
1. He’s A Huge Fan Of Horror Movies :
“Kit Harington” :
“I love horror movies. I really do, I’m a big horror movie fan… I can tell you what my favorites are. I love The Shining. I love The Wicker Man… I love The Ring. I love [David] Lynch as well. I could not get through Inland Empire. I tried to watch that movie three or four times. I can’t get through it. It’s too scary. It starts freaking me out and then when it goes black and white … too much, too much. I’ve never even tried to watch Eraserhead. I think it would be too much for me. I love Mulholland Dr., but even that kind of got to me at times.”

He told the Daily Mail:
“I had a black eye as I’d been in a scrap. But I think it might have helped. You know, ‘Who’s the kid with the black eye?’ I was completely new to them, but I looked the part – still had the black eye.”
Show creator D.B. Weiss also remembers that first audition, telling Rolling Stone he remembers whispering to co-creator David Benioff: “This is what Jon Snow looks like, please let this kid be good.”
