Who knew Game of Thrones star Kit Harington had such a ripped body?

The 25-year-old actor trades in his warrior wear from the HBO hit in the current issue of Men's Journal, where he poses shirtless and reveals his toned muscles and six-pack abs.

For the second season of Game of Thrones (premiering April 1 at 9 p.m. EST), Harington spent nearly a month filming on a glacier in Iceland. "I think the coldest day was minus 35 with windchill," he says.

In his Men's Journal photo shoot, the British actor also modeled the essential casual wardrobe, including Alpha Khakis from Dockers, a Levi's corduroy trucker jacket and Gap boxers.

Harington, who graduated from London's Central School of Speech & Drama in 2008, hopes his Game of Thrones character survives a second season. "No one in this show is safe," he tells the magazine.

Game of Thrones returns to HBO at 9 p.m. EST on April 1. The current issue of Men's Journal is on stands now.
