Jon Snow's been shot! But worry not, fantasy fans, it's just actor Kit Harington, and he's only been shot by fashion snapper Peter Lindbergh. The 27-year-old British actor is the face of the Jimmy Choo men's Fall/Winter 2014 campaign, photographed by Lindbergh in a modernist Los Angeles mansion designed by famed architect John Lautner.

Harington, best known for his role in HBO's Game of Thrones is the face of the luxury shoemaker in a range of campaigns revealed this week.

"Kit was the perfect choice for the campaign -- he has an innate confidence and projects a playfully rebellious nature," explained Sandra Choi, Jimmy Choo's Creative Director. "He has an overtly masculine style that feels effortlessly cool and a great sense of humour, and beneath that intensity he is a true gentleman."

Alongside the main footwear campaign, Harington also shows off the brand's collaboration with Carrera on a sunglasses capsule, and is also the face of the brand's debut men's scent.

The campaign images will break in the September issues globally, accompanied by an exclusive behind-the-scenes interview which may be viewed at The London-based star also appears in a film directed by Eli Born and soundtracked by The War on Drugs' Red Eye.
