Kit Harington Was In Fight At McDonald's Before 'Game of Thrones' Audition

Kit Harington has revealed that he was involved in a fight at McDonald's the night before his 'Game of Thrones' audition.

"I had a black eye," the man who plays Jon Snow on the series tells 'W' magazine. "I'd been in a fight the night before."

"I'd went into McDonald's with this girl I had been dating, and it was late night and there was no seats. I asked this guy and this girl that he was with if we could sit at the same table as them."

"We sat down, and quite quickly he started being rude to the girl I was with, calling her names. He called her an ugly pig or something worse, and I said, 'No you can't, you can't call her that. Get up.'"

"He'd been sat down the entire time so when he got up he just kept going," he says of the man's stature.

"I realized I had to, at that point, I had to throw the first punch or else I'd look like a complete wimp. And I got batted."

"So I went to the Jon Snow audition with a black eye, which I think that man who punched me in the face may have helped me get the job, so thank you!"

The actor also jokes that playing a corpse this season wasn't an easy as it looks.

"We did thousands upon thousands of takes… I was lying down for so many hours, for two whole episodes," he says.

"I remember I fell asleep in the middle of the scene, and woke up, and you know when you wake up and you don't know where you are? There's nothing scarier than waking up in the middle of Game of Thrones world!"
