It may be hard to picture Game of Thrones star Kit Harington in any role other than the bearded, rugged Jon Snow, but the actor helps us out with this newly released audition reel.
He’s not looking to switch parts or anything, but when swinging by Jimmy Kimmel Live, Harington played a little “What if” with the late night host.
What if Emilia Clarke needed an understudy for her role as the Mother of Dragons? Harington in a blonde wig might do the role justice.
Or, might not:
For your amusement, Harington screen-tested for a range of parts and really owned them all. In his sights were the roles of Cersei Lannister, Arya Stark, Ygritte, Hodor, White Walker, and, finally, Harry Potter. Wait, how’d he get into the mix?! Harington ended the audition on a cheeky note, keeping the casting peeps on their toes but ultimately getting kicked out…
This behind-the-scenes skit lands just before the season seven of Game of Thrones premiere, which airs Sunday, July 16, on HBO.
