Since 1992, Keith attended Southfields primary school, and in 1998, the boy with his family had to move from his native London in a town called Wooster, where he entered Chantry High School. Keith has participated in school productions, most of all he was impressed by the play «Waiting for Godot» by Beckett, but to become an actor was not in his plans.
The boy could not decide his vocation for a long time, hesitating between the desire to become a journalist or a military correspondent, or a cameraman. Nevertheless, a few years after graduation, he took a firm decision to become an actor, a true master of dramatic art.
Kit made a first appearance on stage in 2008, playing Albert Narracott in the play «War Horse» (which was in 2011 directed by Steven Spielberg) by the prestigious Royal National Theatre. The role, in general, was highly appreciated by critics and fans of theatrical art, and the young actor supposed to have a great future.
After a series of less prominent roles, the actor has gained recognition as Ed Montgomery — the character from the play «Posh».
However, participation in the cultic series did not prevent the young actor from unsuccessful projects. In 2012 he made his debut in a feature film playing in the horror film «Silent Hill 2». The picture flopped at the box office, causing a lot of disturbances even among the loyal fans of this story. Kit Harington also was not considered a director’s godsend and was accused of unconvincing acting; even Sean Bean who was involved in the first part of the horror and was a Kit’s partner on the set of «Game of Thrones» also could not save the situation.
In 2014, Keith continued to improve his skills by acting in historical dramas «Pompeii» and «Testament of Youth», as in a fantasy film by Sergei Bodrov-Sr. «Seventh Son» with Ben Barnes in the lead. But if Jon Snow’s appearance on the screens constantly arousing a genuine audience’s interest, other projects featuring Kit Harington were often incomprehensible to the public.
By 2014, many critics labeled Kit as a «not much of an actor», although that opinion slightly changed for the better after the comedy «7 Days in Hell», where the young actor had to act already in the present reality. However, 2015 the spy thriller «Spooks: The Greater Good» made Harrington again to fend off a flurry of criticism. «You do not know anything, Jon Snow!», wrote the disappointed fans in their hearts.

While filming in the sixth season of «Game of Thrones» Kit Harington also participates in other large-scale projects: «The Death and Life of John F. Donovan» with Jessica Chastain and Natalie Portman and detective thriller «Brimstone» with Guy Pearce and Dakota Fanning in the leading roles.
He has also been repeatedly caught in the company of Rose Leslie who played the role of the «wildling» Ygritte. Although the actors did not give any comments, fans of the series wanted to believe that a fictional love story turned into a real romance. In April 2016 Keith and Rose finally delighted fans by announcing their relationship.
23rd July 2018, they had a wedding ceremony for more than 200 persons. The UK post made a limited series of stamps with Jon Show's image and all wedding invitations were stamped with it.
Also, he portrayed the main character in Xavier Dolan’s drama «The Death and Life of John F. Donovan».
