Kit Harington Acting With a Fake Dragon Is Life Today, LOL!
Working with a CGI dragon is never easy, unless you’re Kit Harrington, in which case it’s the coolest thing you’ve ever seen.
Kit just filmed his character Jon Snow’s first meeting with Drogon — who appears as a large blue piece of foam on a stick.
“It’s a beautiful moment, and standing out there on this cliff in Northern Ireland with 40-50 mile-an-hour winds whipping through, shooting the scene with Kit Harington and his cloak blowing like a superhero in the wind, reaching out and touching this giant green dragon head,” says Game of Thrones director Mike Shakman. “Which sounds like it would be silly but in the hands of great actors, you know, like him, great actors can make you believe what you’re seeing.”
