Kit Harrington Talks Getting Naked On 'Game Of Thrones'

Kit Harrington is certainly making sure that there's no risk of us jumping off the Game of Thrones train! (Not that there's even a chance since we're already counting down the days until the series' April 6 season premiere!) 

Harrington spoke to GQ Magazine and revealed that he's actually a pretty fair-minded guy--specifically when it comes to the prospect of getting naked for the show! (Hey, if the ladies have to do it...)

From GQ:

To similarly slake people's imaginations, when young actors like Harington sign up for a show like Game of Thrones, one common stipulation in their contract is that they are obliged to disrobe as required. Harington sees this as, in principle, perfectly fair and proper. "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."

So you're happy to brandish your manhood if so commanded?

He pauses. "I wouldn't say I'd be happy about it."

But you would do it?

Another, longer pause. He looks up at me as though I'm walking him into a trap. "I'm not saying. Because I don't know. It would have to be fucking well deserved."

By happenstance he has so far evaded even the little that has been asked of him in this respect. In the show's last season, after Jon Snow has been lured into a cave by the wildling Ygritte and seduced, Harington is seen naked from behind jumping into a rock pool. Except, as it turns out, it wasn't him at all. "When it came down to it I had a broken ankle," he says, "so the only time you saw my ass, it wasn't my ass."

So basically Kit's willing to strip down if it's "deserved" per the writing and the story.

Earn it, Game of Thrones!! Earn it!!

We'd say we already deserve it based on the brilliant trauma we've been through as viewers, but that's a different conversation.

why not just make it a porn then? seems like thats where this is heading. How about advocating for less nudity if "its only right". 

If you don't like the nudity, don't watch the program. It's a brilliant show based on fantastic books and in terms of all the nudity it's completely realistic, what else did they have to do in the medevil times? I'm sick of people moaning about crap like this, why aren't people bothered about real issues? If you don't like it, then don't watch it. It's that simple. You don't have to go around moaning about it and ruining it for everyone else. 

Stick to spongebob and you won't have to worry about it,...I'm guessing your a holly rolling bible thumper.

Holy Bible thumper? First of all I could care less about the current level of nakedness, orgys, language, or gore. When you start having celebritys and characters trying to one-up each other on who can get naked more its just dumb. Period. Hes not encouraging the show to be more "realistic" by saying he should get naked in some parts. Basically hes trying to say "well if they can get naked why can't I"...Big difference. But I'm sure your used to watching Sponge bob since thats the first thing you could think of. Last time I checked there already was nude guys in the show that at certain times made it more realistic. The fact that your encouraging Kit to go nude makes me wonder what else you watch besides sponge bob...Theres tasteful nudity and then theres over the top, which seems like thats all actors want now to become famous. Personally the show could have no nudity and still be great. But since you encourage actors to strip to get famous thats going to put pressure on every actor or actress to eventually get nude to become famous. but hey you like naked dudes so thats on you buddy. Its clear your all for naked dudes. Probably cuz your just used to porn and can't see any movie or show without nudity.

I'm sure if you're going to judge someone by their moral belief that you meant to type Holy, not Holly. Unless there's a bible of me I am not aware of. Maybe YOU should go back to Spongebob and start in that grade level. Pay attention in spelling and grammar class this time.

Get a Life

First off, grammar attacks on the internet are lame. Plus, he's right, watch something else if you can't handle real bodies of real people. G.O.T. needs to have less of nothing. Not less sex, violence, adult language, or gore. The damn thing is perfect! What's so wrong with seeing something we all have in common?? It's a body, not poison.

So hawt!

He has the right to 'want' to respect his body. 

Maybe has a small manhood and he's embarresed. 

Why is getting naked such a big deal for him? He's a guy... 'Sides, we're only talking about showing butt and upper body.

... I don't get him at all.

Why shouldn't men be as concerned with nudity as women are?

It may not appear on camera, but he will be fully naked and all the people working with him will see it and "its johnny". Do you know for sure that he will not be filmed from the front?

You know nothing, and I'd like to teach you.  Grrrrrr........

haha

ohh please, please us haha we deserve it too mr. Snow <3_<3

You know nothing John Snow.
