A gladiator’s life is hard enough without having to deal with a devastating volcano eruption threatening to obliterate your city and kill the out-of-your-league girl you’ve fallen for.

Thankfully, Harington took a few minutes to shed some light on why Milo is looking so surly and bare in this photo.
