At 11, Kit Harrington Finally Learned His Full Name

In Glamour's “Game of Thrones Heartthrob Kit Harington Talks Dating, Dragons, and His Amazing Hair,”  the actor opens in how to train your hair, voice, and body.

Harington graced the big screen's Pompeii last year and currently stars on HBO's critic hit and fan favorite Game of Thrones. Now, he's starring in the summer hit How to Train Your Dragon 2.

Okay, okay. So he did know some of the name, but would really put Kit and Christopher together?

He tells reporter Jessica Radoff, "I think [his parents] could see that I wanted to be Kit, but Christopher was a bit of a tradition." Seemingly his parents found a compromise since "Kit is traditionally an offshoot of Christopher" but "it’s just not used that often." 

The actor's full name is Christopher Catesby Harington. Catesby's his mother's maiden name, which both he and his brother Jack (nickname for John) share as a family tradition.

Would he ever use Kit Catesby professionally? "I nearly did, but I thought it sounded too much like a 1950s talk-show host." Admitting to thinking "it would have been a cool name," Kit Harington seems to work well in the man's favor.

Scores of fans seem to find the man attractive without a literary-sounding name. And that signature curly hair doesn’t hurt, either. How does he maintain the style? Simple: he doesn’t. “I tend to let it do what it wants”

As a media darling by the internet, most Twitter questions for him focused on “will you marry me” whereas he wants to be more buffed up like his character Eret, Son of Eret, in How to Train Your Dragon 2

Just a little animation envy there since the character sketch went from similar frame to “less like me and more like a bigger chap.” Which may be a little confusing for fans since Pompeii's poster featuring his gladiator-trained body still gets posted around the internet whenever Kit Harington's name comes up.

Harington’s love of the “brute” is expressed in the process of creating the character through voice work and animation. “Having your voice put to one of these incredibly lifelike animations was incredibly intriguing and quite an experience.”

Speaking of voices, how does he view his voice? He hears something vastly different. ”I fall under the category of cringing when I hear my voice.” That’ll surprise many fans since Tumblr and Twitter buzz when he speaks on GoT. Jon Snow trends pretty consistently on Sunday nights—especially after last week’s gut-wrenching storyline.

With the last two episodes of the fifth season coming up in the next several weeks, Harington hopes to keep a lid on spoilers. But it’s not easy! Hiding plot lines seem to make the 27-year-old nervous since he’s worried about fan reaction. “I’m terrified we’ll ruin the season, but I don’t think we will. I think they are quite special episodes, really.”
