Kit Harington shares his experience of shooting for Battle of the Bastards, the ninth episode in Season 6 of Game of Thrones. The actor plays the role of Jon Snow, King in the North. With the upcoming premiere of Season 7 in July, social media is abuzz with fan theories about the fantasy drama.
Actor Kit Harington revealed he was terrified while filming Battle of the Bastards in the season six of the fantasy drama Game Of Thrones. During a chat with Belfast Telegraph, the 30-year-old star recalled the epic battle scene, which featured a sequence where his character Jon Snow was crushed under more than a dozen fighters. “I’ve got a few fears, spiders being one of them, but the worst is my claustrophobia. I’m mortally afraid of crowds. I panic. It was one of the most terrifying things and most uncomfortable – 15 bearded Irishmen crushing you. “There was a moment where he could’ve just lay down and let go of the hell he’s in, and sleep, like drowning, but it cuts to the heart of Jon, that he fights his way up to the top,” Harington said.
Game Of Thrones, which is based on novels by George R.R. Martin, and is a dramatic telling of a story entwined with sneaky ploys, nudity, and bloodshed in a quest to claim the Iron Throne.
