@CincyBenWell, hello Jon Snow! Game of Thrones star Kit Harington is gracing the cover of the newest issue of GQ; and we know we're not alone in thinking he is one, gorgeous man! The 27 year old actor opens up to the magazine about a steamy, nude scene last season that didn't actually involve him. In the scene, he is seen naked from behind, jumping into a rock pool with co-star Rose Leslie who plays the fiery red-headed wildling, Ygritte. “When it came down to it I had a broken ankle, so the only time you saw my ass, it wasn’t my ass.” Well, that's a BUMmer! (Get it?!) He also talks about the fame that has come along with being on the smash hit HBO show. “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.” He goes on to talk about the show's unrelenting success and it's appeal saying, "I think people like it because people actually 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. And I mean essentially why I think people like it is it's a rollicking good story with sex and violence." Did he drop any hints on Season 4? Well, of course. "[The violence] It's getting worse, yeah. There's some scenes this season, and there's parts of it that go even darker. The gruesome stuff—we've seen Saw, we know that, you can do that till kingdom come. People can deal with it. What I wonder is how people can deal with something going dark and dark and darker. Being unrelenting in how pessimistic things are. They really push it." For fans of the show and of the sexy Kit Harington, Season 4 begins on April 6th, so get ready for a wild ride deeper into the darkness of Westeros and beyond The Wall. Winter is coming...until then, check out some photo's from Kit's spread in GQ. [gallery type="slideshow" ids="40365,40366,40367,40369,40368"]
