‘Game of Thrones’ star spotted in Madison

New Haven

While people across the country watched the much-anticipated “Game of Thrones” finale, star Kit Harington was here in Connecticut on vacation. 

Jon Snow himself was seen shopping in R.J. Julia Booksellers in Madison. 

“It was the last thing I was expecting. I would never expect him to be walking through Madison, Connecticut in our little bookstore,” said Bella Fazio, who has worked at the store for five summers and happens to be a Game of Thrones fan. 

Harington told staff he was on a little holiday in town. R.J. Julia staff made sure to not take photos during his visit to respect his privacy.

“I didn’t want to bombard him with questions. Obivously, I wanted to ask who ended up on the throne but he probably wouldn’t have told me,” Fazio said. “He was very nice, very humble, just wanted to shop and enjoy his time here.”

Fazio said he was shopping around in staff suggestions and made a few purchases.
