Game of Thrones is one heck of a series and 'The Battle of Bastards' seems to be one of the most striking interludes of this season. Reasons for it have been revealed by the actor Kit Harington himself. He says, the proposition for the major scenes has been taken from his own nightmares.
Kit Harington, who also won the nomination for Emmy for his character on the drama, says the scenes included in the show portraying his role as Jon Snow, almost drowning and getting under a sea of human bodies is actually one of his nightmares, which later turned into a phobia for the actor.
"Everything had backed up a bit and we were running out of time to shoot what we had intended. Miguel and I talked about what my greatest fears are." He said.
He said, his nightmare has been depicted in a horribly perfect way which will give the viewers a cold shudder.
"And as it happens, one of my greatest fears is a human crush-those horrible stories you hear about stadiums where people literally suffocate to death because they can't get out of other people panicking."
"I thought if we could do that in this sequence, that could be really terrifying for the viewer," Harington concluded.
