Looking for scoop on Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington? We've got all the latest Kit Harington pics, gossip, videos, and news right here!

Like many of the actors on Game of Thrones, Kit Harington was relatively unknown before playing bastard son Jon Snow. The London-born 26-year-old was discovered after playing Albert in the original West End production of War Horse, and was also an original cast member of 2010’s production of Posh at the Royal Court Theatre.

His resume may be short, but it’s growing rapidly. After joining GoT in 2011, he starred in 2012’s Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, and just wrapped fantasy book adaptation The Seventh Son with Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, and Ben Barnes. Also on his plate is Pompeii with Emily Browning, Kiefer Sutherland, and Carrie-Ann Moss, and the highly-anticipated How to Train Your Dragon 2, in which he voices Dragon Prince. And we’re sure Kit knows a thing or two about dragons...

Fun Facts:

1. His full name is Christopher Catesby "Kit" Harington

2. He was born the day after Christmas — December 26, 1986!
