If you’re as a addicted to Game Of Thrones as we are then you’ll be waiting with baited breath as the HBO show returns to the UK next month, especially as it means we’ll get to drool over the hunky Jon Snow every week – hoorah!
But while we would put actor Kit Harington up there as one of the biggest hunk s on the planet, the actor has insisted that in fact he’s actually quite “wiry” admitting he had to undergo a grueling workout regime in order to get into shape for his new role as slave turned gladiator Milo in his new flick ‘Pompeii’.
Kit Harington says his body type's actually "really quite wiry"
The star’s branching out in his first ever leading role in a Hollywood blockbuster and has revealed it wasn’t all plane sailing to get his sizzling abs perfectly shaped for the role putting in a whopping two stone in just five weeks!
“I'm not a 6ft 3in guy who can bulk up and just look like an absolute unit, a tank," the 27-year-old told Men’s Health magazine. “My body type has a tiny bit of stockiness to it but it's really quite wiry, so for Pompeii that was the sort of look I had to go for – 'prison fit', like Robert De Niro in Cape Fear.”
Well it clearly worked, as Kit is looking better than ever to get into character for the big budget feature which opens in the UK this May.
Meanwhile the premiere of the fourth season of Game Of Thrones took place in New York this week with stars of the hit HBO series gracing the red carpet for the incredibly anticpated first screening.
Thankfully us Brits won't have too long to wait as the drama returns to UK screens April 7 on Sky Atlantic just a day after it's first aired in the US.
