Kit Harington Speaks Out About The Lack Of Queer Representation In Hollywood

“Game of Thrones” superstar Kit Harington is making his voice heard at TIFF 2018, speaking out about queer representation in Hollywood while visiting the Variety studio.

“There’s a big problem with masculinity and homosexuality that they can’t somehow go hand in hand,” Harington expressed. “That we can’t have someone in a Marvel movie who’s gay in real life and plays some super hero. I mean, when is that going to happen?”

Harington, who was in Toronto promoting his new film “The Life and Death of John F. Donovan”, was joined by his co-stars Emily Hampshire, Thandie Newton and director Xavier Dolan who couldn’t agree more on the topic.

“In the past year there have been so many young, queer actors and actresses that came out through social media,” said Dolan. “But does that mean that the industry has changed how it regards these talent and the opportunities that it does or doesn’t want to offer them and provide them with?”

“It is changing, but we have to get behind those changes and keep pushing it,” Newton added.
