Actor Kit Harington has spoken out about sexual harassment in the entertainment industry, telling the Sydney Morning Herald that allegations against actors, producers and directors aren’t surprising because people “hear stories” about misconduct.

Harington, who plays King of the North Jon Snow on HBO’s hit series, said “most actors” are aware that assaults on female actresses have been going on “forever,” which he finds “upsetting and disturbing.”  He did not address any specific incidents, but noted that sexual harassment is “everywhere” in show business, citing in particular the British theater industry.
