“Yeah, the Weinstein scandal kicked it off over the pond as well. Kevin Spacey was the head of the Old Vic for many years we’re discovering the allegations made against him. Within British theatre, there’s been a problem for many years. This is something that has been going on forever, and not just in the States. It’s everywhere,” Harington told the Sydney Morning Herald in an interview.Harington is currently promoting his new HBO series “Gunpowder” that he has also executive produced.
