‘Game Of Thrones’ star Kit Harington joins ‘Industry’ cast


Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has joined the cast of the third season of Industry, which will premiere later this year.

The show, which is released by BBC in the UK and by HBO in the US, will return to screens later in 2024, with Harington taking on the role of the British aristocrat Lord Henry Muck, described by a press release as “the embodiment of ‘old money’ privilege”.

The show follows a group of young bankers at the prestigious investment bank Pierpoint & Co. in London. Harington will join a returning cast that includes Back to Black’s Marisa Abela, Harry Lawtey and Myha’la.

A synopsis of season three reveals that “as Pierpoint looks to the future and takes a big bet on ethical investing, Yasmin (Abela), Robert (Lawtey) and Eric (Ken Leung) find themselves front and centre in the splashy IPO of Lumi, a green tech energy company led by Lord Muck (Harington).”

The third season of the show was first confirmed back in 2022, shortly after the conclusion of the second run of episodes.

“Industry reached new heights in season two, cementing its status as a buzzy hit with addictive storytelling, layered characters, a breakneck pace, and keen observations about contemporary workplace dynamics,” said Kathleen McCaffrey, senior vice president of HBO Programming, at the time.

“We’re incredibly proud of what Mickey and Konrad, Jami O’Brien, Jane Tranter and the team at Bad Wolf, together with our entire cast and crew, accomplished. We couldn’t be more excited to continue our journey with them into season three.”

In a review of the first season of the show, NME said: ”It makes the world of banking look deeply unappealing, but makes it very fun to watch others suffer through it.”

Harington, meanwhile, spoke earlier this year about his “breakdown” that was caused by Game of Thrones. He explained that starring on the show increased the challenge of managing his ADHD symptoms and led him to drinking excessively.

“People would treat me like the character, who was a hero and good,” he said. “But in my life, personally I didn’t feel like that at all. And that, I think, [led to] some kind of psychological scarring.

“I was drinking a lot. I was going through addiction and everything that entails and hiding things and all sorts. And that was the polar opposite of the character I was playing, who couldn’t tell a lie.”

He went on to say that people expected him to be like Snow: “The disappointment shows in their face the minute you start talking.”
