Jon Snow's addicted to skinny-dipping


Kit Harington has an “addiction to skinny-dipping”.

The 27-year-old actor, who plays Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, arrived at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards in Armani and ready to bare his naughty side. "I've got an addiction to skinny-dipping. I don't know what it is, maybe I am a nudist at heart,” the star told Giuliana Rancic on E! News. "I've not been caught by the paparazzi yet!” he added, refusing to reveal his favourite spots but joking, “I feel like if I say America, the FBI is going to come get me.”

The British hunk’s casting in Game of Thrones was his first foray into television, after beginning his career in theatre during which he had the lead role of Albert in the stage version of War Horse.

Game of Thrones has a large cast with a high turnover of actors as characters are often killed off. Kit previously admitted that losing co-stars can be tough.

"It's hard to say goodbye to people all the time because we have such a wonderful actors. It's part of what makes our show our show. I think all that everyone wants is a good death," Kit previously revealed to the British edition of Glamour magazine.

The star has also moved into the world of movies, with starring roles in Pompeii and How to Train Your Dragon 2, where he voiced the character of Eret.

“Like any successful animated film, it’s not just a kids’ film. It deals with some very adult issues," he recently explained to Collider.

"The really interesting thing is the estranged parents. I haven’t seen many animated films where they deal with something that so many kids in our world deal with, in having parents that are split up."
