Kit Harington's Game of Thrones costume smells of 'wet dog'
Kit Harington's 'Game of Thrones' costume smells of "wet dog".
The 28-year-old actor - who plays Night's Watchman Jon Snow in the fantasy drama - has donned the same cloak in all five series of the show and admits the garment has seen better days.
He said: "When it rains, the cloaks smell like wet dog.
"I think I wear the same costume I've always worn since halfway through season one - the cloak has got years of s**t on it now."
Despite its dark subject matter, Kit insists working on the show is a lot of fun and he has made a number of close friends.
He said: "We have such fun, us in the Night's Watch. We're good friends now.
"The hours we spend in a freezing green room [between scenes] chatting s**t to each other up at Castle Black are as important, I think, for the scenes we do being brothers-in-arms.
"I mean, this isn't a Lars von Trier movie. It's a fantasy and if you can't laugh at yourself in a cloak, you've missed the point."
The hunky actor particularly enjoys the sword fighting scenes.
He told heat magazine: "I really enjoy it now. It's all about deftness of movement, fluidity and knowing exactly where the sword is to be drawn and brought down."
