On Wednesday, Kit Harington and Johnny Flynn were spotted rehearsing for their new play True West, at the Vaudeville Theatre in London.

The Game of Thrones star has taken the role of Austin, a determined scriptwriter whose careers becomes threatened when his criminal sibling Lee, played by Flynn, returns. 

“The final series of Game Of Thrones has been nine months of filming. To be back on stage and in front of an audience is a wonderful feeling,” Harington, 31, told The Standard about his opportunity to star in the play. “It is such a different discipline, going from a cast of hundreds to a play focused so intensely on the relationship between two brothers. I have admired Johnny for a long time now and have discovered a great love for Sam Shepard through this process. I am so excited for audiences to see this play.”

True West is currently running and will continue until February 23.

Recently, Harington was accused of having an affair with Russian model, Olga Vlaslova. 

Vlaslova claimed that she and Harington had slept together multiple times during his engagement to his Game of Thrones co-star Rose Leslie and after their wedding in June. Harington has maintained that he did not have an affair with Vlaslova. In a recent statement, his representative told multiple news outlets that the allegations are “completely false” and that “[Harington] has never even been to Luxembourg nor has he ever met Olga Vlasova.”


Harington and Leslie tied the knot five months ago in a ceremony in Leslie’s hometown of Aberdeenshire, Scotland. In September while at the Emmy Awards, Harington gave a shoutout to Leslie when he was asked how the Games of Thrones show changed his life. “I met my wife in this show, so in that way, it gave me my future family and my life from here on in,” he said.
