We may know Kit Harington best as Jon Snow on Game of Thrones but not all of the 27-year-old actor’s roles have him wrapped in black, trying (and failing) to be celibate.

In his relatively short career, Kit’s had a surprising amount of success, though his gig with Game of Thrones most certainly counts as his breakout role. Soon after he began appearing on the HBO hit in 2011, he starred in Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, which is pretty much a modern day adaptation of what life’s like beyond the Wall.

More recently, Kit’s taking the lead in much-anticipated thriller Pompeii. Starring as Milo, Kit loses the robe to reveal the kind of cut bod Ygritte knew was hiding under all those layers. Needless to say, the results are volcanic.

Up-and-coming actor that he is, Kit’s also got a few other projects in the hopper. He’ll be appearing, or at least his dulcet tones will, in How to Train Your Dragon 2, as Eret, Son of Eret. He’ll be back in front of the camera for Seventh Son, due out next year, and for Testament of Youth, which is currently filming.

We’re all for Kit expanding his portfolio as long as he stays true to Game of Thrones. We’d be lost without our north star.
