The Game of Thrones star brought the goods for the magazine, reminding us why he’s one of the hottest guys in Westeros.
But it wasn’t just all about Kit’s body in the latest issue, the actor had plenty on his mind that he wanted to talk about. Like all that nudity on GOT? He’s cool with it.
“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.” I am OK with that, too. Except, Kit, we’re gonna need your butt, not a butt double like last time when you jumped into the rock pool. “When it came down to it I had a broken ankle, so the only time you saw my ass, it wasn’t my ass.”
So, aside from all the nudity, why does Kit think people are so drawn to the show? “I think people like Game of Thrones because people respond to not being treated like idiots. It’s a really complex story, and it’s very hard to follow, and people love working that puzzle out.”
Kit has a point there. But he also added, “And essentially why I think people like it is it’s a rollicking good story with sex and violence.” You are not wrong about that.
And if you need another reason to love Kit, how about how humble he is? “I didn’t really think I’d be a leading man in any respect whatsoever. At drama school in my third year I was resigned to the fate of being Young Male Rape Victim No. 2. That was the kind of category I was put in.” You are definitely better than that.
Check out the rest of Kit’s interview in the April issue of GQ, on newsstands now, and head over to their website for more sexy photos of the star. Jon Snow is a keeper.
