Most of us are content to wait for Game of Thrones Blu-rays to enjoy actors’ commentary, but – if you’re Brad Pitt and have the cash – you go for the real thing. The actor reportedly bid upwards of $120,000 to watch an episode of the HBO fantasy drama with none other than the Khaleesi herself.
Game of Thrones may not return until at least 2019, but HBO viewers will have their fix of Kit Harington before the year is out. The erstwhile Jon Snow’s new BBC Gunpowder series will get a limited run on HBO, including fellow Thrones stars and Leftovers alum.
We’re close enough now to Game of Thrones’ end that you might forget its troubled beginnings. Near of the entire original pilot had to be re-shot, for which series star Kit Harington now reveals that his bosses David Benioff and Dan Weiss “made a lot of mistakes.”
We all felt queasy with Game of Thrones’ latest love scene, and not just for the incest. There’s also the matter of Kit Harington’s real-life fiancée Rose Leslie (RIP, Ygritte), but true love wins: Game of Thrones will shut down Season 8 production so the whole cast can celebrate those crazy kids’ nuptials, and – shut up – you’re crying.
Out of the ice, and into the fire. Just hours after Game of Thrones wrapped Season 7 with a fiery twist, Kit Harington is getting into even more explosive trouble with a first look at The BBC’s new Gunpowder miniseries, chronicling the infamous Guy Fawkes Gunpowder Plot.
