Dedicated Game of Thrones viewers will remember that in the especially booty-tastic episode from season 3, “Kissed By Fire,” we got glimpses of the high-born posteriors of four main characters and one featured player: Ygritte, Jon Snow, Jaime Lannister, Brienne of Tarth, and Loras’s booty-call all flashed the goods to the enjoyment of many.
BUTT WAIT! (See what I did there?) Turns out that Kit Harrington was incapacitated by a broken ankle during filming, so the rear end leaping into the pool after Ygritte was not Mr.Harrington himself. This has been confirmed by writer Bryan Cogman in the episode commentary, as well as Harrington himself. a butt-double with two healthy ankles was used for the leap. (Warning! Video NSFW. Fake Jon Snow butt at 2:55.)
The good news is that Kit is fundamentally in favor of equal opportunity nudity on the famously boob-heavy show so perhaps a more able-bodied Jon Snow will be persuaded to shed his furs sometime soon.
