'Game of Thrones' star Kit Harington hated Jon Snow's high heels

Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington had to wear high heels on set because he was so “short.”

The 5’8″ star is back on the box with the hit HBO series, but has now revealed that he had to opt for “taller” shoes to boost his height.

In a new interview for the May issue of Esquire, Harington confessed that while he’s long complained about the incredibly heavy costume he had to wear while playing Jon Snow on “Game of Thrones,” it was actually the high heels that were the biggest pain for him.

The actor, 32, said, “So my costume weighed 33 pounds, and you’d carry all of that on your shoulders all day. So 33 pounds for 10 hours. And then you’ve got the sword, and that weighs two kilograms, which is another X number of pounds. It’s four pounds and change.”

Harington continued, “Plus, I was in f—king high heels, because I’m short and they need me to look taller than other people, so I’m carrying 50 pounds in high heels.”

It comes as Harington has also revealed how he feared he would die after being “swung around by his testicle” while filming a dramatic dragon scene in “GoT.”

The actor revealed his pain — quite literally — as he shot the final scenes of the epic series.

Describing how he became trapped on a mechanical dragon, Harington told HBO’s “Game Revealed,” “Buck work is not easy. I think what sums up the buck for me was there was a bit where Jon almost falls off. The dragon swings around really violently, like this, and my right ball got trapped, and I didn’t have time to say ‘Stop!’ And I was being swung around.”

“In my head, I thought, ‘This is how it ends, on this buck, swinging me around by testicles, literally.'”

In the first episode of the final series, which aired on Sunday night, Jon Snow was taught how to fly love interest Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons.

Terrified at first, the character — played by Emilia Clarke — joked it was “nice knowing you Jon Snow” before they both flew through the air.

They filmed the incredible moment in Iceland, where there was only around six hours of light for the actors to perfect the scene.

Emotions ran high for the actors, who spent months working to make the eighth season the best yet.

Harington admitted he “f—king broke down” and hyperventilated when he wrapped the last episode.

CNN’s April Ryan calls for Sarah Sanders to be fired

Fox News Flash top headlines for April 18

CNN political analyst April Ryan called for the firing of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday, claiming Sanders “lied” to the media following the release of the Mueller report.

In May 2017, following the turbulent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Sanders told reporters that “countless” FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey despite one reporter’s assertion that the “vast majority” of them supported his leadership. According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Sanders told investigators her claim was a “slip of the tongue” and was “in the heat of the moment,” admitting that it was not founded on anything.

Ryan, who is also a White House reporter for the American Urban Radio Networks, blasted the press secretary on Thursday night for “lying” to the American people.

“Not only does she not have any credibility left, she lied,” Ryan told CNN anchor Erin Burnett. “She outright lied and the people, the American people can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house. Therefore, she should be let go. She should be fired. End of story. When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s ‘Fire Me Thursday’ or ‘Fire Me Good Friday,’ she needs to go.”

The CNN pundit suggested that since President Trump “won’t take the fall” that Sanders might instead.

“Sarah plays a dangerous game in that room… The game is dangerous because she is lying to the American public,” Ryan continued. “Then, on top of all that, she says the press is fake when she’s faking reports from the people’s house. She’s calling us fake? We’ve had colleagues who’ve had to move from their houses because of threats. I have to have security because of being called ‘fake’ and a ‘loser’ and all sorts of things from that White House. It’s time for her to go.”

The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
