Jon Snow is a beloved character on Game Of Thrones, and in this past season, he had his first sex scene. Now, the man behind the character, Kit Harington, reveals his rules for stripping down on camera. Can we expect more butt shots from this breakout heartthrob?
"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," the actor defended the numerous naked scenes on GOT to GQ magazine.
Unfortunately for Jon Snow admirers, Harington's nude shot wasn't him! "When it came down to it I had a broken ankle, so the only time you saw my a**, it wasn't my a**," the 27-year-old admitted.
However, the actor will be flaunting his six-pack abs in the upcoming action film Pompeii -- and getting his body ready for the role wasn't easy. "That was f**king a lot of work," he told the men's magazine. "But for a film sometimes you've got to do those sorts of things. For people's imaginations."
Do you think there are too many nude scenes in Game Of Thrones? Defend your answer in the comments.
Harington's GQ issue hits newsstands April 1 and GOT season 4 premieres on HBO April 6.
