Kit Harington on Getting Nude for 'Game of Thrones': 'It's Only Right'

Harington

Last week we reported that Game of Thrones actress Sibel Kekilli was requesting that the show up the amount of male nudity, and Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, seems game according to a new GQ cover story.

Says Harington to the mag: “It’s only right, if you’re going to make a show where nudity and sex is a large part of it, that you be a part of that.” Though as far as doing a full frontal, Harington adds, "It would have to be f--king well deserved."

Harington also adds that he used a butt double last season in the scene in which he jumped nude into a rock pool, but only because he had an injury at the time: “When it came down to it I had a broken ankle, so the only time you saw my ass, it wasn’t my ass.”

While none the shots from Harington's GQ shoot feature more clothing than skin, we've posted his sexiest shirtless shots from elsewhere, AFTER THE JUMP...

Kit Harington Shares The Secret Of His Abs

In stark contrast to the heavy coats and furs he wears as Jon Snow in HBO's Game of Thrones series, Kit Harington doffs the winter wear in exchange for a loincloth and arm guard for his role in Pompeii and accompanies the outfit with the perfect accessory of a shredded six pack. In his interview with Vanity Fair, Harington was generous enough to share the secret to his stomach, and it turns out it's a simple 4-part process. All that's required is a daily regimen of:

  • An hour of lifting weights
  • An hour of cardio
  • Two hours of weapons training
  • An 1,800 calorie diet

Easy! As an added bonus, Harington's weapons training has improved his fighting performance on the set of Game of Thrones as well, so much so that director Neil Marshall called Pompeii director Paul W.S. Anderson to thank him personally.

We thank you too, Neil.

Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington was asked by Vanity Fair about recent photos that hit the web of castmate Peter Dinklage hula-hooping in a gay bar.

“That sounds like Peter and Lena [Headley]!” Harington laughed. “That doesn’t happen often, but there’s a great gay club in Belfast that we go to sometimes called the Kremlin, which is a fun night out.”

Asked what kind of trouble the Game of Thrones cast gets into, Harington demurred. “I can never usually remember,” he said, “but it’s always fun.”

'Game of Thrones' Actor Kit Harington is All Abs as a Slave-Turned-Gladiator in 'Pompeii': PHOTO

Entertainment Weekly offers up a new still from Paul W.S. Anderson's forthcoming film Pompeii.

Harington told EW:

“This is the first scene you see me in. It’s set in London, in fact, and it’s a scene where my character is a gladiator fighting in an arena. That’s his gladiator look. It’s a great little fight against three masked gladiators and sets up who he is and where he’s going. You see me display my skills quite early on. It’s a costume I don’t actually wear for the rest of the film, but it’s an establishing one.”
