Game of Thrones star Kit Harington reveals he is 'happy to strut about naked' in third series
Game of Thrones star Kit Harington says he has no qualms about taking his kit off and has hinted that fans might get to see him naked in the forthcoming third series.
The 26-year-old British actor revealed he is contracted to reveal some flesh after he signed a nudity clause before appearing on the show, and says he has no fears about doing so.
“I’m fine with nudity actually. I think it’s one of those things…you take off your robe and 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.” the former War Horse stage star told the New York Daily News.
“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.”
Aside from not having a body double, the actor also confirmed he doesn’t have much of stunt double, preferring to take on his character Jon Snow’s sword fights himself.
“We just adapted it so that all the people fighting me come to me, rather than me coming to them. It actually worked quite well. It really wasn’t too bad,” he said.
The third series of Game of Thrones continues Monday 8 April on Sky Atlantic.
