Kit Harington is so afraid of the original, unaired Game of Thrones pilot being leaked that the show's creators can use it to keep him well behaved.

The original pilot was filmed long before Harington and his character, Jon Snow, became synonymous – but, unbelievably, their first crack at one of the world's biggest shows didn't go too well.

"They say, if I ever piss them off too much, they'll release it on YouTube. Every now and then, they send me a screengrab, just as a threat."

The read-through of the final episode took place earlier in October, he revealed on The One Show, and while he's stated many times that he's ready for the series to end, he's still emotional about it.

"I cried at the end! It wasn't anything particular that happens," he said. "You have to remember, I've done eight years of it. I think, no one really cares about [Game of Thrones] more than us."
