Kit Harington has been working on Game of Thrones (GOT) for over eight years now, which means he’s become very close to a number of his co-stars. However, it sounds like he’s formed a special bond with one co-star in particular — and we don’t mean his wife!
In fact, it sounds like Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) has helped Harington, who plays Jon Snow, stay out of trouble, especially since he’s now married to former co-star Rose Leslie (ex-Ygritte).
According to Radar Online, Clarke has reportedly helped Harington not drink quite as much while on set. He also supposedly listens to her, not just because they’re close friends, but because she’s got a good head on her shoulders.
“She’s very good at keeping Kit in line and out of trouble because he respects her and besides that she’s tough and one of the wisest people on the set. He listens to her when she tells him to slow down and stay focused. He doesn’t drink half as much as he used to, if at all,” a source revealed.
The good news is Clarke reportedly also has Leslie’s approval to keep Harington in line while they’re together. This also comes just a couple of weeks after Clarke revealed she suffered two life-threatening brain aneurysms while filming the early seasons of Game of Thrones.
“I’d had an aneurysm, an arterial rupture. As I later learned, about a third of SAH patients die immediately or soon thereafter. For the patients who do survive, urgent treatment is required to seal off the aneurysm, as there is a very high risk of a second, often fatal bleed.
“If I was to live and avoid terrible deficits, I would have to have urgent surgery. And, even then, there were no guarantees,” she recently said in an essay with The New Yorker.
“In the years since my second surgery, I have healed beyond my most unreasonable hopes. I am now at a hundred percent.”
