As it turns out, Salma Hayek is a Game of Thrones superfan like many of us.
The HBO series is one of the most popular shows in the world. With its talented ensemble cast, everyone has a character to root for and for Hayek it’s none other than Jon Snow played by Kit Harington.
The actress couldn’t help but fangirl over the British actor saying she’s in disbelief that she has the chance to work with him on their new film.
Hayek and Harington join the ensemble cast of Marvel’s upcoming movie, “The Eternals”. Starring alongside them is Angelina Jolie along with Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani and more.
The Latina actress expressed her excitement to work with Harington in a photo she posted on Instagram earlier this week. In the caption, Hayek wrote:
“I still can’t believe that I’m working with #jonsnow! Kit you’re the best!!!”
The pic showed Harington and Hayek all smiles as they look at the camera.
Marvel’s The Eternals will mark Harington’s feature film debut after working for about a decade on all eight seasons of Game of Thrones. In the superhero flick, Harington will take the Black Knight a.k.a. Dane Whitman from Marvel’s comic books to the big screen.
Hayek, on the other hand, will play the ringleader of the titular Eternals, Ajak. The character has been portrayed as a man in comic books. But Marvel is looking to shake things up with the emergence of a gender-swapped Ajak in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
