Game of Thrones has been good to Jon Snow actor, Kit Harington since he first appeared back in 2011. His role catapulted his name into the league of prominent actors and he has landed some major roles. The newest to come to fruition is the BBC’s new three-part historical drama, Gunpowder.
Back in October last year Harington was rumoured to be part of the Guy Fawkes inspired story but it’s taken until now for that confirmation to come through with filming due to start this month (February). Harington will not only be appearing in front of camera but also serving as executive producer. However, his vested interest in this production doesn’t stop there, with Kudos producing in association with his own Thriker Films.

Exclusive: Yorkshire-set drama will have its European premiere at the Berlinale.
Picturehouse Entertainment has acquired Sundance buzz title God’s Own Country for the UK.
Premiering in Sundance’s World Dramatic Competition last month, where it scooped the best directing jury prize for debutant Francis Lee, the Yorkshire-set drama is set to have its European premiere in Berlin’s Panorama section on Feb 14.
As reported by Screen, UK-based sales outfit Protagonist Pictures picked up the film in December 2016 and is representing world rights.
God’s Own Country stars former Screen Star of Tomorrow Josh O’Connor as a solitary young sheep farmer who numbs his daily frustrations with binge drinking and casual sex. The arrival of a Romanian migrant worker (played by newcomer Alec Secareanu) ignites an intense relationship that sets Johnny on a new path.
