‘Game of Thrones’ star Kit Harington on nude scenes
You can’t be a “Game of Thrones” star and be a prude. If you want to wash your hair, conceal your butt, and leave your mother unscandalized, you’d better go into accounting. So sayeth Kit Harington, who stars as Jon Snow in the HBO epic, for now, until his character gets eaten by the Lannisters or something.
“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,” he told GQ.
As a matter of fact, Kit’s parts have not yet been a part of that. The one time we saw Jon Snow’s butt jumping into a river, Kit had a broken ankle and a stand-in had to perform the scene. He’s not raring to take his turn stripping down, though.
“I wouldn’t say I’d be happy about it,” he said. ”I’m not saying [if I would do a nude scene]. Because I don’t know. It would have to be f—ing well deserved.”
I’ll tell you who well deserves it: The show’s female (and gay) fans, who have sat through breast after breast after breast, “well deserved” or not. But you do you, Kit. Don’t do anything you’re not comfortable with.
