Harington said in a behind-the-scenes video that filming the scene was "not easy," and he almost sustained a terrifying injury to his nether regions.
"There was a bit when Jon almost falls off the dragon, swings 'round really violently like this, and my right ball got trapped and I didn't have time to say stop," Harington said. "And I was being swung 'round. In my head, I thought, 'This is how it ends, on this buck, swinging me 'round by my testicles. Literally.'"
"Sorry," he added to the camera crew. "Probably too much information."
Thankfully, he survived the filming, taking to social media to share his transformation. Harington joked: "Jon going full Targaryen 🙌"
