On preparing 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.'"
On staying in shape for "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 [back] riding."
On handling injuries:
"I did my ankle really, really badly about two months prior to the third [season] of 'Thrones.' I spoke to doctors and [physicians] but it was the training for 'Pompeii that got me back to full fitness."
