‘Game of Thrones’ star Kit Harington says Emilia Clarke blew him away when they met

The first moment Kit Harington met his co-star Emilia Clarke, he was blown away, he said.

The “Game of Thrones” star, who plays Jon Snow, was reminiscing about the hit HBO show — which premiered its final season on Sunday — for Esquire’s May cover story.

“I remember the first time I ever saw her,” Harington told the outlet about Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons.

“She came into the Fitzwilliam bar,” he continued. “I had been talking to Rich Madden at the bar and he went, ‘I’ve just met the new Daenerys. She’s gorgeous.’ And I was like, ‘Really? I haven’t met her yet.’ And then she came in and I saw her and was like, ‘Wow.’”

“She takes your breath away when she walks into a room, Emilia,” he added.

Harington explained to Esquire that after that first meeting, he and Clarke — whose characters are now love interests — became friends on press tours and at Comic-Con rather than on the set of the show because their characters didn’t actually meet until Season 7.

“That’s a long time to be experiencing the same show and also the same kind of journey, me and Emilia, because we’ve followed the same path,” he told the outlet. “We both came out of drama school and this was our first big show, and we became kind of the ice and fire of it all a bit—the two youngish leads, I guess.”

When their characters finally did meet, he said it was strange.

“I remember our first scene together was bizarre. We kind of looked at each other and tried not to laugh,” he said.

Harington’s wife, former “Game of Thrones” actress Rose Leslie, is also close friends with Clarke, he said, and after the Season 8 premiere on Sunday, Harington admitted their friendship made it “really odd” for him to kiss Clarke on screen.

“Emilia and I had been best friends over a seven-year period and by the time we had to kiss it seemed really odd,” Harington, 32, told The Daily Mirror.

“Emilia, Rose and I are good friends, so even though you’re actors and it’s your job, there’s an element of weirdness when the three of us are having dinner and we had a kissing scene that day.”

It’s not that weird, however. He joked, “She’s wonderful and I love Emilia and I’ve loved working with her. And it’s not hard to kiss her, is it?”

CNN’s April Ryan calls for Sarah Sanders to be fired

Fox News Flash top headlines for April 18

CNN political analyst April Ryan called for the firing of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday, claiming Sanders “lied” to the media following the release of the Mueller report.

In May 2017, following the turbulent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Sanders told reporters that “countless” FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey despite one reporter’s assertion that the “vast majority” of them supported his leadership. According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Sanders told investigators her claim was a “slip of the tongue” and was “in the heat of the moment,” admitting that it was not founded on anything.

Ryan, who is also a White House reporter for the American Urban Radio Networks, blasted the press secretary on Thursday night for “lying” to the American people.

“Not only does she not have any credibility left, she lied,” Ryan told CNN anchor Erin Burnett. “She outright lied and the people, the American people can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house. Therefore, she should be let go. She should be fired. End of story. When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s ‘Fire Me Thursday’ or ‘Fire Me Good Friday,’ she needs to go.”

The CNN pundit suggested that since President Trump “won’t take the fall” that Sanders might instead.

“Sarah plays a dangerous game in that room… The game is dangerous because she is lying to the American public,” Ryan continued. “Then, on top of all that, she says the press is fake when she’s faking reports from the people’s house. She’s calling us fake? We’ve had colleagues who’ve had to move from their houses because of threats. I have to have security because of being called ‘fake’ and a ‘loser’ and all sorts of things from that White House. It’s time for her to go.”

The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
