For keeping Kit Harington In Line GOT Showrunners Had A Unique idea

"Game of Thrones," HBO's adaptation of George R.R. Martin's popular fantasy series, is now available on HBO.

Although Martin's legacy is controversial, it is a landmark achievement in television.

It was a long, frustrating journey from book to screen.

From a failed pilot to eight seasons of success that received raucous critic praise, the series was a slow and tedious one.

It helped launch the careers of many of the show's stars,

including Kit Harington, who was 19 when he was cast as Jon Snow.

Harington is today one of the most prominent "Game of Thrones” stars.

Jon Snow was the ultimate brooding warrior, who wears black and wants to be taken seriously.

This is thanks to his incredible efforts. However, this wasn't always true.
