Christopher Catesby Harington
born December 26, 1986
London, England

Works include: Series Game of Thrones, Movies Pompeii, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Testament of Youth

Wit’s favorite quote (sort of about the fear of heights): “Just being on cliffs. Even if I’m on the inside of the mountain I still feel like, ‘What if I  just wheel the car off the thing?’ It’s the fear of jumping, isn’t it? It’s not the fear of the height, it’s the fear of jumping. It’s the same next to train tracks and things. 

It’s like when you’re on stage in the middle of a play, and it’s a children’s play, and sometimes your head just goes, ‘I could say FUCK right now really loudly.’ It’s the same thing. I find it very interesting. It’s your brain playing little tricks with you.”

I know just what he means…

tumblr_mx58qvxAga1szxzmuo1_500Very sad to hear today about the death of actor Paul Walker. So beautiful to look at…a generally sweet guy. The Fast and Furious movies will not be the same for me again…and I love watching them.  He will be missed. Image
