ENGLISH actor Kit Harington has taken a stab at an Irish accent in an episode of Amazon series Modern Love.
In the episode, Harington falls for a woman on the Galway to Dublin train and they arrange to meet up, only for the Coronavirus outbreak to scupper their plans.
Harington’s former Game of Thrones co-star Amelia Clarke attempted an Irish brogue recently but uttered only a few words.
However Harington actually impresses with his accent offering throughout the 35-minute episode — entitled Strangers on a (Dublin) Train — winning approval from viewers.
Perhaps the years spent filming Game of Thrones in Northern Ireland alongside Dubliner Liam Cunningham have paid off.
You can check out Harington’s accent below as well what viewers thought of it.
Watching this now thanks to your tweet. Kit’s Irish accent is pretty good, in fairness. Not got to Seána yet.

Jeepers! Kit Harington does a fantastic Dublin accent in that Galway to Dublin train episode of #ModernLove (and delighted Athenry station gets a mention on the tannoy! ) Lovely just pre-lockdown love story! https://t.co/DU3FMCwGAp

While Harington has produced a convincing offering, Irish accents aren’t the easiest to master, even for Hollywood stars.
Modern Love is available to stream now through Amazon's Prime Video service.
