Kit Harington has revealed that he turned down a superhero role while he was starring in Game Of Thrones.

Harrington is due to appear in upcoming merveille film Éternels, where he is set to play one of the few human characters in the film, Dane Whitman – known in the comic book series as Black Knight.

Parler à Total Film, Harington said he turned down an offer to play a superhero character previously, because he was still appearing in the hit HBO series playing Jon Snow.

“I won’t mention what it was, but yeah, there was one other [superhero film] that I did turn down a while ago,” Harington said. “It was a while ago, as well – just because it didn’t feel like the right thing at the right time. And I think I was right to. My head was very in the Jon Snow world then.”

Il a continué: "Vous connaissez, the comic-book and superhero world has called once before, and I didn’t like the role and the part and the time to do it. So I turned it down. And then this one [dans Éternels] felt right to me.

“I liked that the character they were offering was not necessarily an Eternal. He was human. I did like that. I felt that I could do something with that, that he came with all these human faults. So it was the character that drew me to it, as well as it being the MCU, and how exciting.”

Le mois dernier, Harington opened up about the mental health issues he suffered from working on Game of Thrones.

The actor admitted that the violent and intense “nature” of the show “directly” led to him having a breakdown.

Harington Raconté SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show: “I went through some mental health difficulties afterTrônes, and during the end ofTrônes, pour être honnête. I think it was directly due to the nature of the show and what I had been doing for years.”
