Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington has branded every actor in the world ever a raving narcissist.

The 27-year-old, who plays lead character Jon Snow in the hit fantasy TV series, spoke to GQ ahead of the show’s return next year.

“Actors are all narcissists. Every single one, I promise you,” he told the magazine. “To have that verve, to get up and want to be watched.

“It comes from a place – either you were denied that attention as a child, or you were given lots of it and want more. Which is where I land.”

Harington found success as an actor soon after leaving drama school. “It would be foolish to say I wish I’d gone through a period of longing,” he said. “Because any actors going through a period of longing themselves would tear my f**king face off.”

Harington will be reprising his role as Snow in the upcoming fifth series of Game of Thrones and is believed to have extended his contract for a potential further two runs.

Game of Thrones is my life. It’s my day job, I love it. But honestly, if there is a curse of thrones, it’s a lifetime of having to talk about it,” he said.
