The Game of Thrones hunk has revealed some juicy details about his life before fame in a new interview with Elle. When asked about his character Jon Snow’s adventurous sexual escapades with Wildling paramour Ygritte on the award-winning series, Harington revealed that his first time in real life “was a little less left-field than in a cave.”
However, it was still a spontaneous decision. The British-born actor described it as “a typical sort of teenage thing, at a party,” adding, “I was probably too young.” As in “not far off” when the interviewer guessed 13. “I think the girl and I just kind of wanted to.”
Let’s just say, the now 30-year-old star has come a long way, and not only because he’s become one of the highest paid actors on television. He will be continuing his brooding role on GoT for the next two seasons, until winter comes for the entire show in 2018.
He has been working on some other projects as well, including starring in the upcoming Western Brimstone with Dakota Fanning. Harington also expressed an interest in trying out some less serious roles in the future, telling Elle, “I’d like to do comedy,” though not necessarily a romantic comedy.
