Kit Harington To ‘Work Against Typecast’ Following Game Of Thrones Success

Kit Harington is vowing to ‘work against typecast’ for his next acting project after admitting that he ‘understands’ why actors are pigeon – holed into certain roles.

Nevertheless the actor wants to change that in the future. Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald, he said: “I think all actors get typecast at first. I think they see you in Thrones and the industry says: ‘We like what he does in that, so let’s use him in this because it’s the same genre.'”

He added: “You’re always fighting against being typecast as an actor, but if you look at any actors from the past, they’ve all fit into a certain role, whether it be gangster movie, whether it be fantasy action hero or whether it be romantic comedy lead.”

Continuing, the Game Of Thrones star said: “I understand the obsession with typecasting, but I also think it’s a very natural thing. I want to do something a bit more contained next – that’s a bit more about the acting.

“The next two things I do I’m going to be working very hard against my typecast. I’m moving out of the bracket of period action hero.”
