Kit Harington and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Attend Screening of Pompeii at Franklin Institute


Philly paparazzo HughE Dillon snapped these shots of actors Kit Harington and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje last night at the Franklin Institute. The pair was there to attend a screening of their upcoming film Pompeii, which just so happens to coincide with the Franklin Institute’s current exhibit “One Day in Pompeii.”

HughE says he chatted up the stars, asking what they planned to do while in Philly. “Kit tells me he’s going to try a cheesesteak, and Adewale was interested in some delicious soul food. He seemed to be destined to head to Ms Tootsie’s.” HughE says the guys will be making the media rounds in town all day today.

Harington, as some of you may know, plays Jon Snow in HBO’s Game of Thrones. Akinnuoye-Agbaje is a former fashion model who’s most known for his roles in big-budget blockbusters, like The Mummy Returns and 2002’s The Bourne IdentityPompeii is set to be released nationwide on Feb. 21. You can see a trailer for it here.
