There's a pivotal scene from "Winterfell," the first episode from the final season of HBO's Game of Thrones, when Jon Snow (played by actor Kit Harington) rides a dragon for the first time.
It's a thrilling scene, and one of the highlights from an already exciting episode that sets up much of what's to come during what's sure to be the most talked about television events of 2019.
But Harington had an unpleasant time filming that scene, which was achieved by filming the actors atop a giant mechanical bull–type machine in front of a green screen.
Harington recalled that his right testicle became trapped as he was bucked around on the machine––and it all happened so quickly that he didn't have time to tell the crew that he wanted to stop.
He recalled thinking:
"This is how it ends, on this buck, swinging me around. Literally."
what the FUCK i‘ll never be able to watch this scene again without thinking of this lmao #gameofthrones https://t.co/XGa8othfI5— jolie (@jolie)1555339751.0
Harington's fans feel for him, because OUCH, but they were also good humored about the whole thing.

Harington was a good sport about the whole thing and even cracked a smile by the end of the segment. The camera crew had a good laugh, too, but we're sorry guys... that sounds like straight up nightmare fuel for the nether region.
