Game of Thrones has forced our favorite characters to endure a number of horrific events, at least those fortunate enough to survive their first ordeal. Now, series star Kit Harington has revealed which scene was the most terrifying for him to film in an interview with the Belfast Telegraph.
Harington explained why the Battle of Bastards included a moment that was particularly difficult for him to shoot.
“I’ve got a few fears, spiders being one of them, but the worst is my claustrophobia – I’m mortally afraid of crowds. I panic. It was one of the most terrifying things and most uncomfortable – 15 bearded Irishmen crushing you.”
Harington expressed his admiration of Jon Snow’s ability to overcome the difficult situation.
“There was a moment where he could’ve just lay down and let go of the hell he’s in, and sleep, like drowning, but it cuts to the heart of Jon, that he fights his way up to the top.”
Of course, with the help of his half-sister Sansa and Little Finger, Jon Snow emerged victorious and reclaimed the North from the B0ltons. Now, fans will have to wait until next month to learn what new challenges Jon Snow will face in his mission to defeat the White Walkers.
Game of Thrones season seven premieres on HBO on July 16, 2017.

‘Game Of Thrones’: Everything We Know So Far About Season 7
In Westeros, everybody knows “winter is coming.” But in our world, it’s summer we have to watch out for, because that is when Game of Thrones returns to HBO.
Only 13 episodes remain before Thrones exits stage left. Seven of those episodes comprise season 7 and six is confirmed to be the count for the eighth and final season next year. Season 6 left off with two of its biggest and most consequential episodes – “Battle of the Bastards,” which depicted the most expensive battle scene yet filmed for the fantasy drama, and “The Winds of Winter,” which takes it title from the unpublished sixth novel of the planned seven that comprise the show’s basis, author George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, and featured the largest slaughter of named characters in the show’s bloody history.
Now, the game has been reset yet again. Jon Snow has been crowned King in the North by his countrymen, Cersei has seized the Iron Throne in the South, and Daenerys Targaryen sails to Westeros to reclaim it with a massive, multicultural invasion force. And all the while, the Night King, his fellow White Walkers, and their zombie army descend on the Wall, seeking to bring it down and spread wintry death to all of Westeros. After years of war and desolation, can the people of the continent come together in time to avert apocalypse?
