Jon Snow Got His Right Ball Trapped In A Dragon So Good Luck Taking Those Scenes Seriously Again
"This is how it ends"
The actor who plays Game of Thrones hero Jon Snow has admitted that filming the already iconic dragon scene from the new series was a literal ball ache.
Kit Harington made the confession to stifled laughter in a behind-the-scenes chat that aired after the highly anticipated first episode of season eight, so if you haven't watched it yet you might want to head back out of this article.
"There was a bit where Jon almost falls off the dragon, swings around really violently like this," Harington said, still dressed in Snow's winter woollies.
"And my right ball got trapped, and I didn't have time to say "Stop!", and I was being swung around.
"In my head, I thought: 'This is how it ends. On my buck, swinging me around, by my testicles. Literally.'"
While Harington managed to keep a straight face throughout his retelling, the interviewer was a different story; watch the clip below.
