For those of you Game Of Thrones fans out there, you know Jon Snow famously lost his virginity in a cave.
Turns out the man behind the character, Kit Harington, has an interesting story of his own!
When asked by Elle about his first time IRL, the 30-year-old — who is now dating his former onscreen lover, Rose Leslie, whose character Ygritte, stole Snow’s virginity (really coming full circle here) — said:
“Mine was a little less left-field than in a cave. It was a typical sort of teenage thing, at a party. I was probably too young.”
Too young, you say?
The interviewer threw out the age 13 as a guess, to which Kit responded:
“No, but you’re not far off. I think the girl and I just kind of wanted to. You either hold on and do it right, or you’re young and decide to get the monkey off your back.”
Hmmm. Wonder where that girl is now!
In another fun fact, the English actor confirmed rumors that one of his ancestors invented the first flushing toilet for Queen Elizabeth I — which is why people call the bathroom “the John”:
“That’s 100 percent true. It’s called ‘the John Harington.’ I’m glad it’s not called ‘the Harington.’ [My family] also wrote the queen a lot of bad poetry. I’ve inherited the bad poetry genes, but not the inventor genes.”
The more you know!
