Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke filmed their first scenes together for the current season of Game Of Thrones, and while their characters appear to be heading for some kind of regrettable hook-up, in real life, they are as cute as hell.
Case in point: the below video, recently posted to Clarke’s Instagram, that shows Harington goofing around during a break in filming and using his IKEA-certified cape as dragon wings as he stands precariously close to a cliff.
“I mean, JEEEZE, one pet of a dragon and he thinks he’s one of them,” she wrote, referring to the recent Thrones scene that showed Kit Harington’s Jon Snow getting extremely pally with one of Daenerys‘ dragons.
Earlier this week, HBO in Spain totally cooked it and released the sixth episode of the current Thrones season on its on-demand service several days before it was actually due to premiere worldwide.
A Spanish Instagram user live-streamed part of it before someone stepped in, and the network has since been putting out fires all over the place, shutting down further illegal streams from Twitch and YouTube.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jamie Lannister on Thrones, does not seem all that perturbed by the recent situation, saying that the show has not suffered any noticeable dip in ratings, and that genuine fans will probably stay away from sneaky leaks.
“There were always going to be people who want to find out more but I think it’s just a tiny, tiny fraction of the people who love the show,” he said. “Why would you want to spoil it for yourself? We saw it last week, there was an episode leaked, episode four was leaked, that didn’t hurt the ratings at all.”
