Kit Harington was born as Christopher Catesby “Kit” Harington on the 26th of December, 1986 (his current age is 29 years old) in London, England, United Kingdom. He was born to a middle class family to mother Deborah Jane and father David Richard Harington. His mother was also an artist and his father has also appeared and acted in some British TV series, but was a creative writing teacher.

With other members of his family in the army or high level government posts, his father however chose to live differently. Kit’s ancestry is connected to “Charles II of England”. So, with this heavy background it wasn’t easy for Kit to step out of the circle at once and become an actor.

As a child, he grew up in London as well as in Worchester and attended the Southfield Primary School (1992/ 98). Then he moved to study at Chantry High School. With some taste of drama and acting in his school days, he got a real experience after he got admitted in the Worcester Sixth Form College, where he studied Drama and Theatre.

With a very athletically built body, Kit has revealed himself on many occasions; films and photo shoots. A regular member at the gym, he has got very nice body shape that he has made with continuous workouts and proper diet. With his strongly built body and mid length curly hair, he is said to be quiet hot when he is shirtless. You can see many such pictures of his on the internet as well as his Instagram account.

In an interview he was asked about his current partner and he said “I am currently single. Seems like no one is interested in me, and same goes from my side. It will happen when it is meant to happen. I will just stay focused on my work for now.”
