Kit Harrington And Richard Madden Screen Reunion - Harrington Talks Working With His Friend Again On Eternals

Eternals will see a brief Kit Harrington and Richard Madden screen reunion. From what I’ve heard the pair only share the screen for one scene, and it’s the first time they have appeared on screen together since Game of Thrones. However, that was very early Game of Thrones. Season 1 episode 2 to be precise. Whilst Madden remained on the show for the first three seasons before his shocking death, the characters they played never met again. That didn’t stop Harrington and Madden from forming a friendship through their shared experience gaining stardom through Thrones.

Harrington , speaking with Variety recently commented on how little actual screen time they have had together.

“Yeah, if you add up all the scenes that me and Richard have shot in anything, “Thrones” and this, I think it comes in at about four scenes. Isn’t that weird? But there’s so much focus, from my part anyway, on me and Richard’s interaction in this. And it just goes to show that people create longer stories and histories for these characters than is actually there. I find that fascinating.”

However Harrington explains that the pair still enjoyed the reunion, however brief it was.

“We had a big hug. We’ve been close friends for a long time. We had a shared experience of “Thrones” in the first three seasons — the three seasons that Richard was in — where it sort of blew up and became this Goliath of a show. And, you know, we were both 23. We’d kind of came up together and that creates quite a special bond. So actually, we have a very close friendship, but screen time doesn’t reflect that.”

Having not seen Eternals, I have no idea if Madden survives the movie. I’m pretty much 100% that Harrington’s Whitman does. If the pair are both still around it would be cool to see them have a bit more time together on screen in a future project. They had great chemistry in those early Thrones episodes.

Are you looking forward to seeing the Kit Harrington and Richard Madden screen reunion, or would you rather it was more substantial than it seems to be in Eternals? Thoughts below as always.
