Appearing on the cover of GQ’s April 2014 issue, Kit Harrington says there should be more male nudity on Game of Thrones, you know, to even things out. Fifth-wave feminism is seeing more dongs on television.
“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,” Harrington tells the magazine. Related: do you remember what his body looked like in Pompeii??
Unfortunately, Jon Snow’s only nudity in season three was actually a body double, since Harrington had broken his ankle. But there’s always season four (or five)! As for what we can expect from the upcoming season four (besides old-timey merkins and lots and lots of breasts), Harrington says this season is even darker than the last. “It’s getting worse, yeah,” he says of the show’s violence. “There’s some scenes this season, and there’s 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.”
Well I know one thing that lightens the mood–abs. And butts. That’s not me saying that, it’s the people. That’s what the people want, Kit Harrington. Welcome to the female gaze.
