Game of Thrones' Kit Harington is a far cry from Jon Snow as he bags role in rom-com series Modern Love

GAME of Thrones' Kit Harington has secured a role worlds away from Jon Snow in rom-com series Modern Love.

The actor will feature in the upcoming second season of the relationship-based comedy-drama.

The Amazon Prime series, which began in October 2019, will explore "love in its multitude of forms – including sexual, romantic, familial, platonic, and self love".

Kit, 34, will be joined by True Blood's Anna Paquin, The Haunting of Hill House's Lulu Wilson and Free Fire star Jack Reynor.

Harington is best known for his role as Jon Snow in the HBO drama for all eight seasons from 2011-2019.

This marks Kit's first TV role since he featured on an episode of Criminal: UK last year.

Showrunner John Carney is very excited to give fans another series and highlight important issues.

He shared: "We're so excited to bring a second season of this series to life, and give an opportunity to really shine a light on what matters most.

"With so much uncertainty in our current world, these stories bring truth and love to people everywhere, and I'm so appreciative to be a part of making that happen."

That's not the only exciting news Kit has had recently as he and wife Rose Leslie, who also starred on Game of Thrones, welcomed their first child.

Their rep confirmed the news with both stars said to be "very, very happy".

The rep did not disclose the baby's name, or when he was born – with E! News reporting that the new parents had been seen out and about in London with their bundle of joy.

The couple, who met when they starred as lovers in fantasy series Game Of Thrones, are fiercely private and have largely avoided the spotlight since announcing Rose's pregnancy last September.

Rose revealed that she and Kit moved back home to England from the US so that they can raise their child close to their family and friends.
