Jon Snow has been quite the busy little bee in the season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones. He has been riding dragons, finding out the truth about his parentage, and smooching his aunt. Kit Harington seems to have had a blast through it all, as this outtake video that HBO recently released shows. It is somewhat of a “gag” reel, haha! I cannot even with the quality of my jokes.
More than halfway through the video, after playing some tonsil hockey with Emilia, Kit breaks the kiss. He then starts gagging, but a few seconds later into the video, we realize that Kit was actually faking the gagging and the world starts to make sense again.
The scene in question happens at around the 13:50 mark but we honestly think you should watch the whole thing because, at one point, Kit ends up tripping over his own feet in the snow and somewhere at the conclusion of the video goes into a long-winded description about his nuts getting caught in the buck; a device that recreates the dragons; movements. The whole thing is just so relatable though. Not the bit where his naughty bits take a beating, but the verbal diarrhoea of it all.
Speaking to The Mirror about the kiss, Kit Harington said, “Emilia and I had been best friends over a seven-year period and by the time we had to kiss it seemed really odd.” Given that his wife Rose Leslie (who played Ygritte) is good friends with Emilia made the entire thing weirder. He said, “Emilia, Rose and I are good friends, so even though you’re actors and it’s your job, there’s an element of weirdness when the three of us are having dinner and we had a kissing scene that day.”
Moving forward, smooching between the two might be put on the back burner considering that Jon just found that his lover is actually his aunt. The poor sod just can’t seem to catch a break, what with Ygritte conking out and now this.
What do you think? Does this mean the romance between Jon and Dany will come to an end? Or will they take a leaf from Jaime and Cersei’s book and keep it in the family?
Game of Thrones is undoubtedly one of the biggest shows to film in the past decade both in terms of budget and viewership. Managing such a huge franchise is no joke. Even though the showrunners and the crew were careful and worked really hard to make the show near perfect, little accidents and goofs slipped through their clutches. Like the one time, a Starbucks cup was left on Winterfell set during filming. Sometimes things got more serious and resulted in clashes between the actors.
Entertainment Weekly Editor James Hibberd’s book Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon delves into such behind-the-set mysteries. Game of Thrones director Mark Mylod revealed one such fight in the book. The clash between Ian McShane (Brother Ray) and Rory McCann (Sandor Clegane) over a distasteful burger.
Mylod described Ian as a force of nature. He said, “He’s gone down in Game of Thrones crew folklore as being the person who most improved the catering. His lunch was brought up to him and he disliked his burger.”
“So he kicked it and it went flying, and had a few choice words of what he thought of the burger. The burger whacked into Rory, who was enjoying his burger and had no complaints.”
There is no mention of how Rory reacted over the flying burger. Although according to the co-creator, it was his ‘inner rage’ that landed him his role in the series in the first place. Mark went on to thank Ian, however, because after that incident the show got a new caterer.

Fans have always been a bit nosy when it comes to the personal lives of Game of Thrones cast. When you’re that famous, it is hard to escape the curious eyes of your admirers. Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, famous for her bold character Daenerys Targaryen, was spotted with a coffee cup on a cold Sunday morning in London.
The gorgeous actress, who turned 34 last week on 23rd of October, was donning a puffer coat and a brown beanie. She also kept a trusty orange umbrella tucked under her arm to avoid getting wet in case it rained.
Emilia’s snap with the coffee cup is reminiscent of the infamous Game of Thrones’ scene where a Starbucks cup was left on the table. Fans were quick to spot it and were going crazy as it was too silly a mistake to commit for a show that big on budget.
In Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 4, ‘The Last of Starks‘, we see Tormund, very drunk, praising Jon Snow for all of his accomplishments. Daenerys is sitting on the table, spiralling into paranoia about Jon’s natural charisma and how much he is loved in the North. When the shot pans out, a Starbucks cup can be neatly spotted right next to Emilia Clarke.
The fans were in a fit over the little goof, and it became an instant meme. Let’s hope Clarke doesn’t have to face any such situation in future. Tell us how you felt about the infamous scene in the comments below!
23rd October was an important day for Game of Thrones fans all around the world. It is the birthday of one of the biggest stars of the show, Emilia Clarke. The beloved Khaleesi, Queen of the Dragons turned 34 on Friday. It was also an important day for Deadpool fans as well, as it was actor Ryan Reynolds’ birthday too. The veteran actor turned 44 on the same day.
Ryan Reynolds is known and adored for his fun-loving and comic nature. He took to Twitter to cause a stir amongst the fans when he tried to troll the Game of Thrones actress over their shared birthday. He declared, quite hilariously, that it was his day, not hers.
So sorry. I moved her birthday this year. It was feeling a little crowded for me. https://t.co/Mx5CXPKH4T

Emilia Clarke, however, hasn’t been on Twitter since 2013. So it is highly unlikely she would come out of her Twitter-retirement to respond to his antics.
Canada’s official Twitter account made sure to wish their national treasure a happy birthday to which he responded almost right away. Reynolds adorably responded just one minute later with two heart emojis and one Canadian flag emoji.
“We just wanted to pop into your feed and wish you a happy birthday on behalf of Canadians far and wide! Thanks for being you, eh?,” Canada tweeted.
Clarke and Reynolds are two of the best performers in the entertainment industry. Emilia even continued to work after her secret brain surgery back in 2012. Send your best wishes to them in the comments below!
