Both the show's performers and filmmakers are pranksters, so Game of Thrones is plenty of humorous stories. The show's makers believed Kit Harington's Jon Snow was too beautiful for the bleak plot. After a confrontation with a white walker, they wrote a fictional sequence in which Jon would lose half his face and hair. Harington took revenge by sending film directors a photo of himself bald. Harington had to admit the photo was five years old to avoid a scandal (he couldn't cut his hair till the final sequences were done).
