Kit Harington covers the April issue of GQ, dishing on the upcoming season of “Game of Thrones” and why he used a butt double on the HBO show.

Asked about the constant nudity on the extremely popular series, the actor shares, “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.”

Harington adds that if he does get naked on the show, “It would have to be f**king well deserved.”

The star further notes that the only time he was nude on the show thus far (when his character Jon Snow jumps into a rock pool after losing his virginity to Ygritte), he had a broken ankle, so “it wasn’t my ass.”

As for what we can expect on the season 4, Harington reveals, “It’s getting worse… There are some scenes this season, and there are 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.”

He says of Jon Snow, “There’s a huge amount riding on him to be a leader, and I want him to become that leader. I guess for me, Jon Snow is a figure of hope within the whole thing—that he’ll continue to be this good person, and somehow the story will end well for everybody.”

Harington also tells the magazine he was shocked when he first landed the role, offering, “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.”
