Game of Throne’s Jon Snow, aka Kit Harington, is not necessarily known for his comic side, yet the latest How To Train Your Dragon Toothless' audition tape certainly showcases a different side of the King of the North.
In the hilarious video, the British actor, who will provide the voice of Eret in How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, which is due out in 2019, the actor interacts with Toothless, an aloof dragon. The star was last featured in The Death & Life of John F. Donovan, a Canadian drama that deals with themes of celebrity, tabloid media in Hollywood, mother-son relationships, and homosexuality, and which premiered at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival.
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, a computer-animated action fantasy film based on the book series by Cressida Cowell, is being produced by DreamWorks Animation and will be distributed by Universal Pictures. It is a sequel to 2010's How to Train Your Dragon and 2014's How to Train Your Dragon 2, and will be the final installment in the How to Train Your Dragon trilogy.
Kit Harington And How To Train Your Dragon's Toothless' Audition Tape
I don't think Toothless was the dragon that Kit Harington expected in his audition... 🐉😂 This How To Train Your Dragon - UK and Game of Thrones mash up is incredible 👏 Universal Pictures UKPosted by LADbible on Friday, December 14, 2018
The film, written and directed by Dean DeBlois, will showcase the voices of Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, T. J. Miller, Kristen Wiig, F. Murray Abraham and Jonah Hill, as well as Kit Harington. The film is due to be released on February 22, 2019 in North America.
The film seems to follow a theme for Harington, who has been actively working alongside the dragons on Game of Thrones. The actor is also closely associated with charity work, having participated in June in the 130 challenge, a charity campaign that raised funds to save Townbridge's Town Hall Arts in Wiltshire. At the time Harington said, "Small-scale out-of-London venues like Town Hall Arts are becoming a more and more precious commodities, for the communities they serve and also for the many actors, musicians, and artists they provide paid work for. They are a vital part of the arts ecology and it’s only with these sorts of venues that actors like myself have a chance of building a career in the arts."
Also this year, he joined Tom Hiddleston, Kristin Scott Thomas, Jeremy Irons and Indira Varma for a charity gala that celebrated the life and work of Harold Pinter, a Nobel Prize-winning British playwright, screenwriter, director and actor who died in 2008. The event, aptly named Happy Birthday, Harold, was held at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London, on October 10 and featured several examples of Pinter’s work. Proceeds benefitted Amnesty International and Chance to Shine, two of Pinter’s favorite charity organizations.
While we all anxiously await the series finale of Game of Thrones, enjoy Harington’s other dragon work.
