“Do you think I come across as too broody? Because honestly, half the time I’m just trying to remember where I put my keys.”

Jon Snow may be adept at dealing with dragons in Game of Thrones, but dragons from elsewhere seem to be above his pay grade. Just unearthed from Dreamwork’s extensive archives is this blind audition for what was the beginning of the How to Train Your Dragon trilogy.

Apparently Harington has been given bits from Game of Thrones scripts to read with “some big Hollywood star”. The director is giving Kit instructions on what he wants to see. The “big Hollywood star” turns out to be Toothless, who is anything but under control.

Harington might have been passed over for the first film, but he did get a role in the second film, and returns in the third, as Eret, Son of Eret.

Written and directed by Dean DeBlois, the film stars the voices of Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Kit Harington, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T. J. Miller, Kristen Wiig and F. Murray Abraham. This will be the first DreamWorks Animation film to be distributed by Universal Pictures. The film is releases February 22, 2019 in the United States.
