Kit Harington better known as Jon Snow from Game of Thrones has been talking about his new lead role in upcoming film Pompeii, an epic historical romance. Set in the days leading up to the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, a slave on a ship heading for Naples works to get home to save the woman he loves and his best friend, a gladiator trapped inside the city’s coliseum.

Harington has joked that he’s wearing  a lot less clothes in Pompeii than his character Jon Snow has too in Game of Thrones.

Harrington wrapped up warmly as Jon Snow

In an interview with Access Hollywood Harrington discussed the look of his latest role.

“I’m [in] far less clothing than I wear on Thrones,” he quipped. “That’s the look we’re going for – sort of a tunic. I’m more aware of my body now than I have been for anything else.”

He continued: “[We have a] similar look to Spartacus, but maybe not quite as nude as they get. I saw a couple of their episodes and they get pretty nude.”

“There’s a lot of fight scenes, so that’s something that I’m sort of used to from Thrones,” Harington explained.

“I’m having to get very good at throwing swords about again. But, it’s really exciting. It’s going very well.”

Harrington will star alongside Emily Browning, Kiefer Sutherland, Jessica Lucas and Mad Men’s Jared Harris.
