While we have a long wait until 2019 to find out what happens to Jon Snow and gang on Game of Thrones, the actor who plays him, Kit Harington, is giving us something to sink our teeth into.

Kit, who's the new face of Dolce & Gabbana's cologne The One (alongside onscreen lover/aunt Emilia Clarke) recently spoke to The Cut, sharing hair-care secrets and his love for another famous fantasy character.

Jon Snow might know nothing but here's what we now know about Kit.

1. The King of the North can bust a move
Kit's signature dance move is "the classic shimmy shake." "I do a little shoulder dance and then wiggle the hips at the same time and look really intense," he explained.

Some of that is seen in Kit's The One campaign video.

2. He knows how to treat his woman
He likes buying jewellery (he's not the flower type) for his significant other. Ugh, as if we need another reason to be jealous of Kit's real-life girlfriend, Rose Leslie.

3. He thinks Jon Snow wouldn't be the best-smelling bloke
"He smells like wood smoke, wet dog, and meat that's gone off," Kit quipped. (Smells like a manly man to us!)

4. He can't wait to get a haircut
"Look, I don't do much to it, I just get out of the shower and let it dry. And it sort of naturally dries in an intriguing way for people, I guess," he said. Yes, it does, Kit, yes it does.

5. He has the easiest skincare routine ever
Kit takes after his father's belief that "water was the best moisturiser."

6. He wears man buns but isn't a fan of the term
"I resent that a man bun has to be a fashion statement. No one ever says about a girl who's got a ponytail it has to be a fashion statement, it's just a way to get it out of your face."

7. He could get crafty
If Kit wasn't an actor, he'd teach himself "to be a carpenter or woodworker."

8. He's a Potterhead
He's a Gryffindor (because "no one wants to be in Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw is boring and Slytherin is full of psychos"), he thinks J.K. Rowling is fabulous, and he'd love to be in the Fantastic Beast films (someone, please make this happen!).

9. He really loves, uh, boiled eggs?
Kit said that he'd "jump off a cliff" if he had to live without "boiled-egg and toast soldiers." He's also thinking of collecting egg holders and, more specifically, getting Jon Snow egg holders made. Where can we buy one of those?
