Q. So you’re in a successful show now, has it changed your life? What are the differences between before and now?
Kit: It has, I’d be lying if I say it hasn’t changed my life, mainly since the first season came out and aired. I mean, there’s a lot more doors open to you I guess, people know of your work more because of how globally it’s shown and how it’s been received. I’m just enjoying it. I’m at a place in my young life, young career, where there could be lots of doors opened and I’m ploughing on towards them but this show is my life at the moment, and it will be for a few years. Everything is Game of Thrones to me. It’s been fantastic; it’s been an amazing journey so far.
Q. Does devoting so much time to Game of Thrones prevent you from exploring other, new opportunities?
Kit: Well I only shoot for six months of the year and then the other six months I have free to do other movies or theatre or whatever I want. A lot of people kind of turn to you and say, “So when you signed this, you signed for how long?” and I say, “Six years,” and they go, “That’s tying you in isn’t it? They’ve got your bollocks in a vice!” and my answer is, “Well I really don’t care!” I’m in an HBO TV show, which is in my humble opinion the best American TV there is and it’s doing well, it’s been a success and I’m an actor who’s in work for possibly six years and I can do other stuff around it. I’m in a great position and I’m only thankful for it.
