‘Game of Thrones’ fans were heartbroken to hear that one of the series' leads, Kit Harington, had to bail a few days before the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel earlier this year due to an ankle injury. But that just made his appearance at New York Comic-Con that much more exciting.
Earlier in the convention, Harington joined his big-screen co-star Adelaide Clemens in the IGN theater at Manhattan's Javits Center to promote ‘Silent Hill: Revelation 3D’ along with writer/director Michael J. Bassett and producer Samuel Hadida. Making his big-screen debut in this film, Harington plays Vincent, a mysterious character pulled pretty much directly out of the video game series. Although not much was revealed about Vincent at the panel -- 'cause anything more than a vague description was said to spoil the plot -- Bassett did mention that "If you know the game, you’ll know Vincent."
Also in the works for Harington is his continued role in the upcoming 'Game of Thrones' season 3, premiering March 31, 2013, where we'll get to see him again as the ever-popular Jon Snow along with his new co-star Ciaran Hinds (playing Mance Rayder). I had a chance to chat with Kit Harington about, among other things, ‘Silent Hill: Revelation,’ making his first venture into film, some off-screen shenanigans, and, of course, the much-anticipated ‘Game of Thrones’ season 3.
If you decided to check out the ‘Silent Hill: Revelation 3D’ panel through the New York Comic Con live stream, then you’ll know what we’re talking about when we say the place was packed with herds of Adelaide Clemens and Kit Harington-loving fans (some of which previously knocked over pole barriers trying to hold in their excitement in line). The NYCC 2012 panel, hosted by Fangoria Magazine Editor Tony Timpone was held in the IGN theater of the NYC Javits Center, and, besides the two leading actors, featured writer/director Michael J. Bassett and producer Samuel Hadida.
The first official trailer for 'Silent Hill: Revelation 3D' is here, and while we could certainly do without that pesky 3D bit, the trailer does a great job of making us want to return to the haunted little town.
