Kit says he’d love a dog of his own, but spends too much time on the road to give it enough love. He does get along great with his four-legged costars on Game of Thrones though. Cooper played the role of his Dire wolf “Ghost” in the first four seasons. His breed was a Northern Inuit, which is like a cross between a German shepherd and malamute. When filming of the Northern scenes moved from Ireland to Alberta, Canada for seasons 5 and 6, Quigley was cast for the role of Ghost, who is an arctic wolf.
