It sounds like Salma Hayek is a big Game of Thrones fan just like everyone else which is why she could not contain her excitement about co-starring Jon Snow, aka, Kit Harington, on The Eternals! The actress took to her social media to share a picture that featured the two of them and in the caption, she released her inner fangirl!
‘I still can’t believe that I’m working with #jonsnow ! Kit you’re the best!!!’ she wrote alongside the snap that seems to suggest the filming for the upcoming superhero movie has already started!
In the picture, Kit can be seen wearing a white jacket and black T-shirt and smiling brightly with an arm around Salma.
Meanwhile, she is wearing a dark blue blouse and a jacket and is just as smiley as they pose for the camera.
Hayek has been making it very clear that she is super excited about being part of The Eternals since she opened up about it at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim as well, last month.
The star was relieved that she could finally start talking about it at least a little bit since keeping the secret had not been the easiest.
‘I’ve known for a long time. I’ve known since March. We have to keep it as a secret and it just kills you. It is like the most amazing thing that can happen to you, but you can’t tell anyone,’ she told ET while at the film’s presentation.
Hayek also mentioned that the character she portrays is originally a male in the comics.
But, in the end, the creators decided to make Ajak more motherly.
‘But Chloé [Zhao], the director, has approached the leadership a little bit more [with a] deeper connection. So, it is like a family and I am like their mother, and they are all beautiful in different ways,’ the actress also shared at the time.
