This new interview comes with a gorgeous photo of our lovely Kit. Enjoy!
“Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington has no qualms about doing nude scenes, and fans can expect to see his character, beleaguered swordsman Jon Snow, in the buff sometime this season.
“I signed a nudity clause way back when, so I knew at some point it’s going to happen and I won’t spoil it for your readers for when it does,” Harington told the Daily News. “I’m fine with nudity actually. I think it’s one of those things … you take off your robe and there you are nude.
“And there’s a hundred people watching you and after the first 30 seconds, everyone’s seen everything. I’m quite happy to strut around naked after that.”

In an interview with WiC a while back, Kit mentioned his love of reading. That left some of our readers wondering which books the actor loves.
“My favorite book,” Kit ponders. “It’s pretty morbid, really but it’s 1984 by George Orwell. I love it, I’ve always loved it. I’ve read it numerous times. It’s given me paranoia about the world many times.” He cracks a smile. “And I love Catcher in the Rye. You know, I’m reading a lot of William Boyd at the moment. I go through different authors at different times. There’s a brilliant Scottish author called William Boyd, and he writes brilliantly- sort of profound but not in-your-face books…There’s one called Any Human Heart which I’ve just read, which is amazing.”
On suffering from a broken ankle shortly before filming began, Kit says, “I’m not going to lie and say that it was a piece of cake. It was much better than I thought it was going to be when I first did it. Before I was filming, I thought, ‘Oh God this is really going to mess up filming.’ And if you’re in a series like this and it means this much to you, you’ll know that that’s a heartbreaker, knowing someone’s going to be doing stuff for you…As it happened, I had a great physio and I got back to a place where I could do all my fight scenes.”
Despite the show’s enthusiastic fanbase and his status as a heartthrob, Harington’s fans have been sending him only polite letters and the occasional “sultry picture.” The strangest item he’s received to date has been a hand-puppet from Japan, he explains with a smile.
“You know what? If [fans] want to send me something crazy, go right ahead, because I haven’t received anything too crazy yet.”

“She could be the most good looking, famous, wealthy and intelligent person, but if she can’t laugh and doesn’t have a sense of humor, I’m afraid she’s not the one for me.”
The British actor, who plays warrior Jon Snow on the HBO fantasy drama, which returned for season 3 Sunday night, describes himself as the romantic and polite type. “I like to treat women special and sweep them off their feet,” he says. “I always open doors for them and even for men. I don’t discriminate in that way.”

“She loves to antagonize Jon Snow, and I feel that this season is going to be very exciting for both those characters,” Leslie says of the duo’s dynamic when the show returns this Sunday. “You see their journey continue and you see the relationship they have develop. Also, you get to see a softer side of Ygritte this season.”
However, Harington says, “Jon’s going to do everything he can to try and stop it becoming a romantic involvement, but she’s pretty into it. She’s a hard lady to refuse! You’ll have to wait and see if he breaks his vow or not. He may not have a choice.”
Of the potential for a love scene, Leslie teases, “There may be, there may not be. I’m afraid I can’t say!”

WE last saw Night’s Watch guard Jon Snow going undercover in the Wildling camp to discover what these mysterious people are up to. What’s coming up next for him?
Jon goes to meet [Wildling leader] Mance Rayder and we see him in real peril – like a lot of people are coming to be in the whole series. In his head, he’s got a 75 per cent chance of death. He’s got this annoying red-haired girl [Ygritte] who’s standing up for him, but he doesn’t think that’s going to swing much when he’s about to meet this legendary Wildling. Coming up in season three, he’s a spy within their camp.
Will Jon stay loyal to the Night’s Watch?
You won’t know where his loyalties lie after a while – whether he’s going to be loyal to the Night’s Watch or if he’s going to realise that the wildling way is more suited to him. That was interesting to play for me and hopefully it will be a mystery to the audience.
How will Jon’s relationship with feisty Wildling Ygritte [Rose Leslie] evolve this series?
He sees that she’s now his only real friend so he needs her, but she keeps trying to protect him which he finds really annoying. [As for any romance] you’ll just have to wait and see – I’m hoping it will be fun to watch.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends! This, the third of four roundtable interviews, took place on Tuesday the 19th of March, 2013, at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons, immediately on the heels of the interview we had just conducted with Michelle Fairley, Maisie Williams, and Isaac Hempstead-Wright.
As ever I was joined by Terri Schwartz of Zap2it, as well as 3 other reporters (one being the infamous television binge-watching Paulette from XFinity TV).
They enter; Kit looks casual in black (it was always his color), his very-recognizable Jon Snow hair pushed back away from his face, a three-day scruff on his cheeks. Despite his insistence that he is a shy guy, he’s really quite sociable once you get him talking. Kit has a quiet confidence that comes with being young and talented, but he’s pretty damned humble and isn’t at his most comfortable when receiving praise. But really: a lovely guy. He is in a rather good mood today, and his brown eyes are lively.
Head over to WinterisComing.net to read the lengthy interview along with some gorgeous snapshots of our lovely Kit.
Kit, has your ankle healed?
HARINGTON: It has, yeah. I had my last physio session the other day. I’m running, jumping, skipping, hopping. Yeah, it has healed, finally. It was a rather irritating period of my life. Don’t do it to yourself.
Jon Snow has the classic undercover story going on right now, with where that line is when you become the thing that you’re undercover as. How much of a struggle is that for him, this season?
HARINGTON: I think it’s the biggest struggle he’s come across. He obviously had a struggle in Season 1, where he had to decide whether he’d go down and avenge his father. His struggle in Season 2 was what to do with Ygritte. And then, Season 3 is that classic spy thing of falling in love with the enemy, and the enemy not being what you expected them to be, but actually maybe being something you prefer. In convincing yourself that you have to be one of them, it eventually seeps into your very being.
How does Jon’s relationship with Mance Rayder develop this season?
HARINGTON: It was amazing, first of all, to have Ciarán Hinds playing Mance Rayder. I think you really should watch him this season. He’s incredible. I don’t know. I think Jon knows to respect him, and respects him from word go. But, it’s quite nice having another older, paternal figure. He’s had so many. He had Ned, and then Benjen, and then Maester Aemon, and then Mormont, and then Qhorin Halfhand. Finally, he gets one that he doesn’t actually have to listen to. He’s telling him where he’s going wrong and all this, and he can go, “You know what, mate? Piss off! I am fighting against you.” But then again, this man has bonded all the people from beyond the wall because he’s got amazing charisma, and Jon will fall for that, too. I think Mance knows exactly what he’s doing, by twisting Jon around his little finger and knows that Jon hasn’t quite come over to their side yet. It’s a really interesting relationship to develop. I wish me and Ciarán had more.
