Kit Harington is ready to change up his on-screen image.
During a chat with the Telegraph, Kit, who famously played Jon Snow on "Game of Thrones," said he wants to move on from heroic characters.
"I feel that emotionally men have a problem, a blockage, and that blockage has come from the Second World War, passed down from grandfather to father to son," he said. "We do not speak about how we feel because it shows weakness, because it is not masculine. Having portrayed a man who was silent, who was heroic, I feel going forward that is a role I don't want to play anymore," he said.
Kit, 33, adds, "It is not a masculine role that the world needs to see much more of."
Thinking of himself as somewhat of a complex person, Kit noted that those are the roles he's now vying for.
While the days of playing heroic and stoic characters like Jon Snow are over, Kit does think he brought "a certain self-reflective, introverted broodiness" to Jon Snow's personality.
Kit has spoken about trying to shed the Jon Snow character before. In 2018, following a makeover, he told Entertainment Weekly, "I like having the long hair and beard both, but it will be like ritualistic thing. I can't go into my next role looking the same. This role was brilliant, but I'll need to get rid of Jon Snow."
