Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington lands comeback TV role!
It had been a while since we saw Kit Harington on our TV screens. And many of his fans felt his absence since they’ve been watching him on Game of Thrones in the past decade. Now, the actor is ready to make a comeback as he has landed another role in a TV show! Here’s what it’s about.
Kit Harington set to star in Modern Love
Kit Harington has joined the star-studded cast of the relationship-based comedy-drama Modern Love in its second season. After the release of its first season on Amazon Prime in 2019, the anthology series will dive deep into:
love in its multitude of forms – including sexual, romantic, familial, platonic, and self-love.
Modern Love will return later this year and it will feature Harington, who played the iconic role of Jon Snow in HBO’s Game of Thrones. Furthermore, the likes of Jack Reynor, Anna Paquin, Lucy Boynton, Dominique Fishback, Lulu Wilson, and Minnie Driver will join Harington on-screen. Moreover, other big names like Tom Burke, Zoe Chao, Maria Dizzia, Gbenga Akinnagbe, Susan Blackwell, Garrett Hedlund, Telci Huynh, Nikki M James, Larry Owens, and Zane Pais will also be a part of the cast.
Furthermore, the showrunner John Carney is extremely excited to have Kit Harington as part of the cast. He said in a statement:
We’re so excited to bring a second season of this series to life, and give an opportunity to really shine a light on what matters most. With so much uncertainty in our current world, these stories bring truth and love to people everywhere, and I’m so appreciative to be a part of making that happen.
He’s been busy since 2019
After wrapping up Game of Thrones a couple of years ago, Harington has had an enjoyable life. He featured in an episode of Netflix’s Criminal and finished filming Marvel’s Eternals. In Eternals, he is playing the role of Dane Whitman, who is a human warrior who wields a mystical sword. He’ll feature alongside big names like Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Salma Hayek, and Angelina Jolie! And if this news wasn’t great enough, he also recently welcomed a child with his wife, Rose Leslie.
