Kit Harington Talks Being Naked on 'Game of Thrones' in 'GQ'!

Kit Harington is a handsome stud in leather on the cover of GQ magazine’s April issue, out on newsstands on Tuesday (April 1)!

Here’s what the 27-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On being naked in Game of Thrones: “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.”

On a scene from last season where he is seen naked from behind jumping into a rock pool: “When it came down to it I had a broken ankle, so the only time you saw my ass, it wasn’t my ass.”

On his fame: “I didn’t really think I’d be a leading man in any respect whatsoever. At drama school in my third year I was resigned to the fate of being Young Male Rape Victim No. 2. That was the kind of category I was put in.”

FYI: Kit is wearing a Saint Laurent leather jacket.

'Game of Thrones' Cast Covers 'Vanity Fair' in Full Costume!

The cast of Game of ThronesEmilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, and Peter Dinklage – grace the cover of Vanity Fair‘s April 2014 issue, on newsstands March 13.

Here is what the show’s team had to share with the mag:

Peter on his character: “It just seemed like something I had never come across before, especially in the fantasy genre, which I still refuse to call this, even though we have dragons. It is just something that I was so eager to embrace, because it turned the dwarf stereotype in the fantasy genre on its head. And he’s a hero at the same time.”

Author George R.R. Martin on having child actors: “This is a serious concern. Maisie Williams was the same age as Arya when it started, but now Maisie is a young woman and Arya is still 11. Time is passing very slowly in the books and very fast in real life.”

Co-creator David Benioff on the excessive sex and female nudity: “I’m sitting here next to my wife [actress-playwright Amanda Peet] and I just asked her. She says: ‘What matters is whether there are great roles for women of all ages and types and whether the women in the story actually propel the plot. If they take their clothes off while they do that, so be it.’ I don’t know if she’s the right person to ask: she’s showing her tits tomorrow in her own HBO show.”

Kit Harington's Muscles Bulge Out of His Shirt for 'Men's Health UK' April 2014

Kit Harington and his huge muscles take the cover of Men’s Health UK magazine’s April 2014 issue, on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 27-year-old Pompeii actor had to share with the mag:

On getting in shape for Pompeii: “I’m not a 6ft 3in guy who can bulk up and just look like an absolute unit, a tank. My body type has a tiny bit of stockiness to it but it’s really quite wiry, so for Pompeii that was the sort of look I had to go for – ‘prison fit’, like Robert De Niro in Cape Fear.”

On his character in Game of Thrones: “The physical stuff is very much a part of who Jon Snow is and over the four years I’ve got into rock climbing, ice climbing, sword fighting and horse riding.”

On an injury that didn’t stop him: “I did my ankle really, really badly about two months prior to the third series of Thrones. I spoke to doctors and physios but it was the training for Pompeii that got me back to full fitness.”

Kit recently opened up on why he decided to take the role of Milo in Pompeii.

“This was a great opportunity to be a leading man,” Kit told The Washington Post. “It’s a genre I know and have worked in. It’s not going to be a wildly different character, it’s not a particularly character-driven role, but it’s an opportunity to be a leading man, to do a body transformation. And I had lots of things I wanted to do within it.”

FYI: Kit is wearing Levi‘s jeans.

Last week, Kit and his co-star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje suited up for a screening of Pompeii in the Big Apple.

“I never expected to be a sort of action hero, per se, and that seems to be what I am right at this moment. It’s a complete surprise to me. I always played the young boy at drama school, so being an action hero is very, very surreal for me. But I’m enjoying it,” Kit recently shared to Vanity Fair.

FYI: Kit is wearing a Dolce&Gabbana jacket and Levi’s jeans.
