Kit Harington Thinks Emma Thompson Is Underrated in 'Love Actually'
Growing up loving Juliette Binoche in 'Trois Couleurs: Bleu' and Juliette Lewis in 'Natural Born Killers,' Kit Harington now declares Emma Thompson acting royalty. Among her best work? 'Love Actually.'
Released on 9/14/2016
Two women that I really grew up really fancying
was Juliette Lewis, in Natural Born Killers.
I had a real, like, crush on her in that.
Feisty and scary and, you know.
And then Juliette Binoche was the other one.
Trois Couleurs: Bleu.
Tragic and angry. This sums up my life!
Now, what's my favorite love scene in a movie?
Um, again this is weird. It's not really a love scene.
It's, you know, The Wicker Man.
You know, when she's naked
and she's banging against the wall.
I wouldn't call it a love scene
but it's the first one that came to my head.
(laugh from off camera)
Which is bizarre.
God, that's not a love scene at all, is it?
Acting royalty to me is Emma Thompson.
I can't even begin to understand how she does what she does
so naturally, so effortlessly, so brilliantly.
And it is sort of, as sort of well respected as she is
I feel like she's one of those actors
that's not lauded enough.
My favorite moment in any film, it's a weird one,
but it's in Love, Actually
where she leaves,
she finds out that her husband is cheating on her,
she gets a gift and she leaves the room,
she goes up to her room and she cries.
She settles herself and she comes back.
And by the time she left the room and come back,
everything in her life has changed,
but nothing has at the same time.
And it's beautiful acting.
