IN­TER­VIEWED KIT HAR­ING­TON FOR OUR COVER STORY, P88

GQ (Australia) - - GENTLEMEN'S QUARTERLY -

How was Kit in per­son?

He seemed re­lieved to fi­nally have fin­ished a long and dif­fi­cult fi­nal-sea­son Thrones shoot and new­ly­wed-chuffed, hav­ing re­cently got­ten mar­ried.

You also in­ter­viewed him back in 2015 for Bri­tish GQ – has he changed much since then?

It was like meet­ing a dif­fer­ent per­son. When I last met Kit he was in a very dif­fer­ent place. He’d just filmed his in­fa­mous Jon Snow death scene. He was charm­ing, back then, but seemed ex­hausted by the grow­ing weight of the show.

Are you a Thrones fan? Any favourite mo­ments?

I thought we all were? Can’t re­ally top Kit’s two big bat­tle episodes – the de­fence of the wall and then the Bat­tle of the Bas­tards.

Any top tips for who is go­ing to win big this Os­cars sea­son?

I loved Roma and its cast of un­knowns. But let’s go with my com­pa­triot Clare Foy for some qui­etly bril­l­liant sup­port­ing-ac­tress work in First Man.

One thing you’re look­ing for­ward to this year?

Find­ing out which of the Avengers are ac­tu­ally dead.
