Jimmy Kimmel Reveals Kit Harington's Game of Thrones Audition Tapes
While the release date of Game of Thrones Season 7 is so close and yet so far, Kit Harington dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to lighten the mood with some "audition tapes."
Watch Harington try out for the roles of Cersei, Arya, Ygritte, Daenerys, and, well, someone a little unexpected:

Kimmel also attempted to eek spoilers out of Harington in a slightly more serious interview the same night.
Harington kept his mouth shut, as HBO is known for being particularly brutal when it comes to actors sharing information (Gemma Whelan was told she could "almost not be employed" for revealing news of her casting as Yara Greyjoy before the show had aired).
Harington did, however, reveal one of the network's tactics for derailing the press.
"We had a lot of paparazzi following us around, especially when we were in Spain," he tells Kimmel. "But we did fake some scenes. We put together people in situations where we knew the paparazzi were around, so they'd take photos that would get on the internet."
Harington alone participated in the filming of three fake scenes that were never meant to air or be a part of the series in any way - and these scenes each took around five hours to film.
Unfortunately no spoilers are gained from this information either, as Harington quashed Kimmel's attempts to figure out which scenes were faked.
