"Leave the saving of the world to the men?
I don’t think so…”
I have no problem with people in theory it’s just in practice I have no idea what to do with them. Like how do you hold up a conversation for hours at a time? How do you bond? Are you supposed to feed them regularly? What are the basic requirements of other people and why can’t they be effectively standardised I to a formula I can follow?
“I was called Kit from day one, really, I only found out my name was Christopher when I was 11. It was very strange, I went to school, and I remember that you had to do these tests to find out what set you’re in—how clever you are. I put down “Kit Harington,” and they looked at me like I was completely stupid, and they said, “No, you’re Christopher Harington, I’m afraid.” It was only then I learnt my actual name. That was kind of a bizarre existential crisis for an 11-year-old to have, but in the end I always stuck with Kit, because I felt that’s who I was. I’m not really a “Chris.”
