Kit Harington net worth: Whopping fortune the Jon Snow actor has made from Game of Thrones
London-born Kit Harington first made his professional acting debut on stage, performing in the National Theatre and London’s West End. He landed the role of Albert in the play War Horse, while still at the drama school Royal Central School of Speech & Drama. He later graduated from the school in 2008. Fast forward three years, and in 2011, the actor shot to international fame, when he began portraying Jon Snow in Game of Thrones.
The success of the show saw the series soon being renewed for a second season.
In fact, the fantasy drama is now in its eighth – and final – season.
As well as Game of Thrones, Kit has appeared in a whole host of other TV shows and films.
His filmography includes the 2014 film Pompeii, 2016’s Spooks: The Greater Good, and the 2017 show Gunpowder.
Kit’s performances have seen him scoop a number of awards, and a wealth of nominations.
Among the accolades, the actor was honoured with the Giffoni Experience Award at the Giffoni Film Festival back in 2017.
The actor has also landed a number of other jobs, endorsing brands.
This includes being the face of Jimmy Choo in March 2014, a role as a spokesperson for Nissan’s Infiniti two years later, and in 2017, he was announced as the face of the Dolce & Gabbana fragrance “The One for Men”.
The amount Kit is paid for his Game of Thrones role is reportedly $710,000 (£537,000) per episode.
How does this compare to the actor’s Game of Thrones co-stars?
From all these branches of his career, Kit has likely earned a huge amount of money – but what is his net worth?
