Steve Love, the Ottawa man who has become an online sensation for posting impressions of popular Game of Thrones characters on YouTube, got to show off his best Jon Snow to the actor who plays the part.

English actor Kit Harington was the guest on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live airing Wednesday night, and as part of the show, Kimmel invited Love, along with two other men, to demonstrate their best impressions of the broody Snow.

Love read from a bottle of shampoo in the voice of Snow to the amusement of the actor and audience.

He also performed impressions of a number of other characters, including the unctuous advisor Varys, the scheming Littlefinger and Snow's sidekick Sam Tarly.

Love first attracted the attention of Kimmel for impressions he posted of many characters on the popular show. His last posting of season four impressions has been viewed more than one million times.

Watch the video above to see how he fared in reading the line — "Winter is coming" — for which Snow is most famous.
