Harington, 26, arrived in San Diego fresh off wrapping his latest film, Pompeii, which marks his first leading role in a feature film.

On the morning of the Emmy award nominations announcement, which revealed that Game of Thrones received 16, Harington sat down with The Hollywood Reporter. He spoke about his character, Jon Snow, who he says would listen to some pretty dark music if they'd had iPods in Westeros.

"He's pretty emo, Jon. He'd listen to some pretty depressing music," he says.

The actor, who filmed most of season three in Iceland, shows off his Icelandic accent and describes the interesting food he experienced while abroad.
