Now that his Game of Thrones character Jon Snow is (probably) dead, Kit Harrington is traversing the audition circuit.

In this sketch he's seen auditioning for the position of ambassador for British charity Mencap, but it's not quite going according to plan.

Kit is interviewed by Ciara and Lloyd, who both have a learning disability, and are unimpressed by his lack of jocks and questionable impression of Freddie Mercury.

Initially they mistake him for Frodo from Lord of the Rings and ask him what Ian McKellen is like.

He explains he's worked on Testament of Youth and Spooks too but they're none the wiser and ask him why he wants to be an ambassador for Mencap.

"I want to be your ambassador because I want to help support people with a learning disability," he says.  "I believe everyone deserves equal healthcare, equal education, equal access to work, the same chances as everyone else to go and have fun."

He gets a round of applause before Lloyd asks him he he knows any good jokes.

"I don't really do comedy," says Kit.

Could have fooled us!  Check out the full sketch above.
