The King of the North is seemingly an average man who can succumb to large amounts of alcohol. A video shows Kit Harington, the actor who plays Jon Snow in the hit HBO show Game of Thrones, being involved in a drunken confrontation with patrons and bouncers alike. He was eventually kicked out of the bar.

Harington was visiting a New York bar called “Barfly” when the video was shot late Friday night, according to the Daily Mail. The reason behind the confrontation between the actor and those at the bar are unknown.
One eyewitness who spoke to TMZ said Harington and his entourage were told to leave the bar which they did do. But the actor came back into the bar shortly after and had to be physically removed by bouncers.
One thing that is clear in the video is that Harrington had had way too much to drink as the video footage clearly showed the actor was heavily inebriated. Throughout the video, the 31-year-old can be seen stumbling around the cramped-looking dive bar. At one point in the video, Harington was trying to locate his coat and can be heard yelling about not being able to find it.
The Game of Thrones’ star is one of the highest paid actors on the show.
According to Business Insider, Harington, along with his co-star Peter Dinklage who plays Tyrion Lannister, earn $500,000 an episode. With 13 episodes in one season, the actor makes $6 million a season.
In September 2017, Harington announced his engagement to his longtime girlfriend he met on the show, Rose Leslie. With Game of Thrones not expected to release its season until 2019, it’s safe to assume Harington was free to blow off some steam.
Unfortunately for him, he found himself in a video receiving negative press. Harington’s representatives have yet to release a statement regarding the video. Check out the video below.
