Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington charmed audiences during his appearance on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live as he promoted the seventh season of the popular show.
During the interview Harington revealed a few trade secrets including the fact that they film fake scenes to confuse fans, which is just mean but also pure genius!
However, the most surprising reveal was a video segment that showcased Harington’s other auditions for Game of Thrones before he won the role of Jon Snow.

In the ‘never-before-seen Kit Harington screen tests’, the actor tries his hand at playing several popular characters from the show.
He tackled Cersei Lannister first, dressed in a blonde wig clutching onto a wine goblet.
Doing his best impression of the character which is played by Lena Headey he said:
In the Game of Thrones, you win or you die.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to have sex with my brother.
Harington also had no problem impersonating Arya Stark, Ygritte, Hodor and, our personal favourite, Daenerys Targaryen, complete of course with fake breasts and long braids.

In the hilarious video the British actor also donned a black robe and Gryffindor scarf as he pretended to be Harry Potter, arguing that the character should have a place in Game of Thrones.
Now that is something we would like to see. Hogwarts meets Westeros.
Game of Thrones is set to return to our screens July 17.
