Kit Harington has admitted he was relieved he got the seal of approval for his Irish accent in the anthology TV series Modern Love.

The Game of Thrones actor recently appeared in an episode of the Amazon series alongside Bohemian Rhapsody star Lucy Boynton, in which he plays an Irish man who falls in love with a fellow passenger on the Galway to Dublin train.

The London-born star said he was particularly glad that the praise came from an Irish outlet after an English journalist slated his accent attempt.

Speaking to Dermot and Dave on Today FM, Harington said: "I'm terrible for reading reviews. I read reviews, which is a bad idea as an actor. And I read a review from an English journalist saying how bad my Irish accent was.

"And then the Dublin Gazette I think it was, or one of the Irish papers, came out and said it was good and I thought, 'yes, come on'.

"I’m just glad that I did your accent justice."

The anthology series, developed by Irish director John Carney, is based on The New York Times column and podcast of the same name and each half-hour episode tells the story of a true love story.

The second season moved away from New York City and filmed episodes in Ireland and around the UK, with Harington and Boynton's episode Strangers on a (Dublin) Train shooting in Dublin and Wicklow.

Harington also spoke about quarantining in Blessington Lakes in Wicklow while he was in Ireland to film the episode, where he hung out with Bohemian Rhapsody actor Rami Malek, Boynton's partner.

"We stayed out there, we quarantined out there," he said.

"I saw Rami out there because we were out there at the same time.

"We just had a really lovely time, I couldn't think of a nicer place to quarantine than next to Lake Blessington going for swims, you know it was lovely."
