GQ (Australia) - - CARS -

“It’s like I’ve been sit­ting on this big fuck­ing se­cret,” sighed Har­ing­ton in a 2015 in­ter­view for the TV se­ries that has made him a house­hold name. The se­cret, of course, was the liveli­hood of Har­ing­ton’s Game of Thrones char­ac­ter, Jon Snow. For the best part of a year, fans, in­ter­view­ers and pretty much ev­ery­one else wanted Har­ing­ton – dead or alive – to spill the beans. And yet he didn’t. Not a word to even his near­est and dear­est about Snow’s fate, un­til the stun­ning rev­e­la­tion in sea­son six. Im­pres­sive stuff. Some ques­tion if Har­ing­ton will end up type­cast, for­ever trapped in Snow’s beard, coat and shadow – and maybe he will. But he also saw it as an op­por­tu­nity to shape one of the most iconic char­ac­ters of all time. And he nailed it.
