Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington Describes ‘Breathtaking’ moment he met Emilia Clarke
In an interview with ‘Esquire,’ Harington thought about his time shooting ‘Game of Thrones’.
He revealed that he found the kissing scenes a little awkward because Emilia is his best friend who is also a close friend of Kit’s wife Rose Leslie.
Harington met Rose Leslie on the set of ‘Game of Throne’ in 2011 and later married in 2018.
He recalled discussing Clarke at one point with his co-star Richard Madden, moments before she walked in.
“And then she came in and I saw her and was like, ‘Wow’, she takes your breath away when she walks into a room, Emilia “- Kit Harington, via ‘Esquire’
Thanking the press tours, Harington says he and Clarke went on to become “best mates for years,”
“I think we’re good mates because we, maybe more than anyone else, know what the other ones are going through a bit. I think no one else other than Emilia will know exactly what being on ‘Thrones’ is like, the way we’re on ‘Thrones’.” – Kit Harington, via ‘Esquire’
The pair’s characters didn’t meet until season seven of the series, an experience Harington described as “strange.”
“I remember our first scene together was bizarre. We kind of looked at each other and tried to laugh…[We]had been best friends over a seven-year period and by the time we had to kiss it seemed really odd.” -Kit Harington, via ‘Esquire’
