Sunday night, for the season premiere of Game of Thrones, 17 million viewers watched Kit Harington nearly lose a testicle.
An opening scene called for Harington’s character Jon Snow to ride a dragon. Harington took HBO viewers behind the scenes with a mechanical bull standing in as the dragon and shared far too much information.
Harington described his harrowing situation (quote) “There was a bit where Jon almost falls off the dragon. It swings around really violently. My right ball got trapped. In my head, I thought, 'This is how it ends, on this buck, swinging me around by testicles, literally.” (E! News)
