Kit Harington has confessed his 'Game of Thrones' costume smells of "wet dog" as he's worn the same Night's Watchman's cloak in all five series

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."
