On getting in shape for Pompeii: 

“I’m not a 6ft 3in guy who can bulk up and just look like an absolute unit, a tank. My body type has a tiny bit of stockiness to it but it’s really quite wiry, so for Pompeii that was the sort of look I had to go for – ‘prison fit’, like Robert De Niro in Cape Fear.”

On his character in Game of Thrones: 

“The physical stuff is very much a part of who Jon Snow is and over the four years I’ve got into rock climbing, ice climbing, sword fighting and horse riding.”

On an injury that didn’t stop him: 

“I did my ankle really, really badly about two months prior to the third series of Thrones. I spoke to doctors and physios but it was the training for Pompeii that got me back to full fitness.”
