Watch: Kit Harington 'auditions' in Game of Thrones spoof screen test

Kit Harington showed off his acting range this week, when his Game of Thrones 'screen test' was aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The Jon Snow actor is set to appear on TV screens once again next week when the seventh series of the HBO show airs on Sky Atlantic.

In the run up to the much anticipated premiere, Kimmel decided to show audiences just how wide Harington's acting skills can reach.

″Jon Snow wasn’t the only part Kit was in the running for,” Kimmel jokingly said. “He actually auditioned for a couple of other characters on the show which, now that we know him as Jon Snow, is hard to imagine.

Kit Harington as Hodor.

“But the producers of Game of Thrones gave us his audition tape - this is the exclusive never before seen Kit Harington screen tests.”

The star is then seen sporting a wig and cape as he takes on Cersei Lannister - whose name he gets wrong.

Arya Stark, Hodor, Ygritte, and Daenerys Targaryen all feature as Harington attempts the character, with Harry Potter even making an appearance - albeit unsuccessfully.

Game of Thrones returns to Sky Atlantic from Monday, July 17.
