He's known to his fans as Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, and now Kit Harington steps into his first leading man role in the action blockbuster Pompeii as Milo, a slave-turned-gladiator who swordfights, stands up to corrupt politicians and tries to save the love of his life from the fury of Mount Vesuvius. Kit was recently in Australia to promote Pompeii, and we caught up with the British actor to talk about the intense preparation he did for the role and what it was like having Australian actress Emily Browning as a love interest. He also gave us some Game of Thrones season four scoop and revealed how he watches the show. Watch the interview above to hear everything straight from Kit — Pompeii is out March 20, and Game of Thrones returns to Showcase on April 7.
