At this year’s edition of Comic-Con, we learned a few interesting facts about a certain man named Kit Harrington. For one, the man is an enormous fan of “Star Trek” and also “Harry Potter,” and he also finds the food in Iceland, which apparently includes bizarre parts of a goat’s body, to be rather disguising.
So how does he handle some of the bitter cold temperatures that he films “Game of Thrones” in while out on location in Iceland? The actor chatted with The Hollywood Reporter on the subject at the convention, and said that really, he just does what most people would naturally try to do in this sort of difficult situation:
“You’re huddle up a lot in between takes, because it’s minus-thirty … A lot of the [cast and crew], we get together as penguins do and huddle up and try to get together that way.”
Harrington also said that he finds the White Walkers “horrific,” and thinks that they could really defeat the likes of zombies or any other undead supernatural creatures from other shows in a fight. Well, considering that Sam is really the only character to have done anything to them at all, he may have a point.
Harrington also said that he recently read all ten scripts for the upcoming fourth season, and confirmed that the team has really found a way to raise the stakes again despite a season 3 that contained the biggest moment of the show thus far in the Red Wedding:
“I was thinking ‘how are they going to follow last season,’ and they have really followed it. It’s immense; it’s very epic.”
