Kit Harington would like to thank the man who punched him the face at McDonald's many years ago.
You see, the night before the actor's audition for the role of Jon Snow, he ended up getting into a fight at the fast food joint, which may or may not have catered to him landing the part.
In an interview with W magazine, Harington recalled his audition for Game of Thrones: "I had a black eye," he said. "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.'"
Of course, the man ended up being quite a bit taller than him.
