From school to HBO heavy hitter in two deft sword strokes, Kit Harington\'s rise to stardom is the stuff of fantasy. GQ meets the Game Of Thrones actor ahead of its fifth series and discovers how the big screen will showcase the next instalment of this knight\'s tale.
"Game Of Thrones is my life, it\'s my day job, I love it. But honestly, if there is a curse of Thrones, it\'s a lifetime of having to talk about it."
"I\'m more recognisable in public than much better-known actors. So many people watch, and I go around looking like my character."
"I\'d get people coming up to me in the street and asking if I was OK. But this is my default. I laugh, I make jokes, I just happen to reside in this face."
On finding success so quickly after drama school:
"It would be foolish to say I wish I\'d gone through a period of longing. Because any actors going through a period of longing themselves would tear my f***ing face off."
"I won\'t name names and I won\'t name films but I\'ve sat through private screenings, nearly in tears. Hating it. Thinking: this is the end, everything\'s over."
"They\'re all narcissists. Every single one, I promise you. To have that verve, to get up and want to be watched. It comes from a place - either you were denied that attention as a child, or you were given lots of it and want more. Which is where I land."
