Kit Harington Admits Hero Roles Are ‘F*cking Hard’ To Play

He now prefers playing characters with more problems and deeper issues.

Kit Harington shares his thoughts on playing hero roles and why he’s steering away from them.

Harington told Entertainment Weekly that making hero characters interesting is really tough, and he now prefers to explore characters who have more flaws:

“My heart goes out to people playing heroes. They’re f*cking hard to play and to make interesting. … [Playing] a guy who is doing all the right things and is driven by being good, it’s harder to do that. And I think people who do it successfully, who play classically heroic roles, are very talented actors. But at the moment, I just find it more interesting looking for the f*cked-up people.”

Playing Jon Snow May Have Affected Him

Harrington explained that he found those roles less appealing after playing a hero for so long:

“If I look at the roles I’ve taken since playing an out-and-out hero in ‘Game of Thrones,’ I have to admit there seems to be some sort of pushback about playing a hero. I’m not so interested in heroic roles, and if I am, they have to be pretty anti-hero-ish..”

So, he now eyes roles that are a bit darker and more complicated than Jon Snow.

Harington was working on a new ‘Game of Thrones’ spinoff that would continue Jon Snow’s story. Earlier this month, he confirmed that the project was put on hold. He can be seen in ‘Blood for Dust’ playing a villain.
