Salma Hayek may be one of the worldâ€™s biggest Hollywood stars but even she is prone to fangirling.
Kit Harington – who recently came out ofÂ a stint in rehabÂ after self-referring himself to work on some “personal issues” – was the target of her appreciation in a photo she posted of the two of them onÂ Instagram.
Hayek is a massiveÂ Game of Thrones fans and captioned the snap: “I still can’t believe that I’m working with #jonsnow ! Kit you’re the best.”
Hayek plays leader of the Eternal Ajak, a character who has been gender-swapped for the movie, while Harington was announced in the cast at Disneyâ€™s D23 Expo, as non-Eternal Dane Whitman.
Whitman also goes by the name Black Knight and has a relationship with Gemma Chanâ€™s Eternal character Sersei

Barry Keoghan, of The Killing of a Sacred Deer fame, joined the previously announced cast at D23 Expo to confirm his role as a new Eternal called Druig.
Richard Madden (Ikaris), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo), Angelina Jolie (Thena), Salma Hayek (Ajak), Lauren Ridloff (Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry (Phastos), Lia McHugh (Sprite) and Don Lee (Gilgamesh) were all in attendance to reveal their costumes for the Marvel movie about gods fighting gods, directed by Chloe Zhao.
This mystical Marvel movie is set millions of years before the events of the Infinity Saga â€œwhen the cosmic beings known as the Celestials genetically experimented on humans, creating the super-powered individualsâ€ called The Eternals as well as the more villainous group The Deviants.
As the filmâ€™s synopsis says: â€œthe two groups went on to battle each other throughout history to see which would eventually become the ultimate race.
â€œThe story involves the love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes in moving amongst humans.â€
MCU fans will be aware of the Celestials thanks to the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise; Knowhere, the home of the Collector, is actually the head of a dead Celestial while Peter Quillâ€™s dear dad Ego is one of them too.
Then thereâ€™s Thanos, who is a Titan Eternal himself, while the Kree and Skrull races (seen in Captain Marvel) have their own history with certain Eternals too.
Filming began in August in Atlanta and the movie is set for release on November 6, 2020.
