It was recently announced that Game of Thrones Jon Snow actor Kit Harington has found a new job. Harington is returning to the London stage as Doctor Faustus (via Playbill):

"I have been away from the theatre for six years, so the combination of Colin Teevan's inventive version of Marlowe’s extraordinary play in the hands of the visionary director Jamie Lloyd all felt like the perfect reason to come back. Faustus' journey is exhilarating and the idea of playing a magician –- a showman –- is hugely exciting."

Doctor Faustus begins previews on April 9 and opens on April 25. Doctor Faustus will be performed at the West End's Duke of York's Theatre. Tickets are available Now. For more information go to

Gwendoline Christie will return to the Star Wars universe in Episode 8.
