Life Story of Kit Harington

Kit Harington was born Christopher Catesby Harington in Acton, London, to Deborah Jane (Catesby), a former playwright, and David Richard Harington, a businessman. His mother named him after 16th century British playwright and poet Christopher Marlowe, whose first name was shortened to Kit, a name Harington prefers.

Through his paternal grandmother, Lavender Cecilia Denny, Kit's eight times great-grandfather was King Charles II of England. Also through his father, Harington descends from politician Henry Dundas, 1st Viscount Melville, the bacon merchant T. A.

Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke in Game of Thrones: Das Lied von Eis und Feuer (2011)

He broke his ankle in 2012 when he was locked out of his apartment building in London and fell while trying to climb to his flat. During Season 3 of Game of Thrones (2011) the film crew had to figure out how to shoot around the injury, including the use of stand-ins in "Jon Snow wigs". Harington felt so guilty that he bought the production manager a bottle of whiskey.

Conleth Hill and Kit Harington in Game of Thrones: Das Lied von Eis und Feuer (2011)

Kit's recent ancestry is English, as well as Welsh, Scottish, Northern Irish, and Dutch. His distant roots include German, French, and Spanish, and, going back to the 1400s and 1500s, he also has remote Italian, Polish, Lithuanian, Austrian, and Danish ancestry. Kit's father is from a prominent family, and descends from many Earls, Baronets, Peers, Dukes, and Viscounts. Many of Kit's mother's ancestors lived in India and South Africa as part of British colonialism and Dutch settlements (through his mother's Dutch ancestry, Kit descends from Count Jacob van Reenen).

His paternal eight times great-grandfather was King Charles II of England. Charles II was King of England, Scotland, and Ireland from 1660 to 1685, as well as King of Scotland from 1649 to 1651. Actors Dacre Montgomery and Rose Leslie are also descended from Charles II, and are therefore KIt's distant cousins.

On Pompeii (2014), Kit Harington undertook a heavy 'bulking' regime and a diet of 3000 calories a day to put on 2 stone of weight in 5 weeks. He then went on a very severe diet and 'cutting' regime for 4 weeks to cut back from 12 stone to 10 stone acquiring intense muscle definition in the process.
