Anyone who has watched an episode of Game of Thrones has undoubtedly seen many of the series’ women play out scenes with nothing on but their birthday suits. Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow, thinks there should be more equality with regard to men in the series baring it all.
The 27 year-old heartthrob said n an interview with GQ that, “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”. However, Harington is not jumping at the opportunity to perform such a scene saying, “I wouldn’t say I’d be happy about it. I’m not saying because I don’t know. It would have to be f**king well deserved”
While being keen on the idea, the burgeoning actor makes a very valid point, “It’s strange being nude in front of a whole crew full of people and trying to be very intimate. It’s a very surreal experience. But it was such a beautiful scene. It was one of those very happy moments that you get in this series. You don’t get many moments of tenderness.”
In fact, Harington had a stand-in for the one time in the series where you do see Jon Snow’s bum. At the time the scene was shot Harington had been nursing a broken ankle. “So the only time you saw my ass, it wasn’t my ass,” he said.
