TV Guide: Have any of you used your knightly chivalry off the set?
Kit: I stood up for a girl in McDonald’s on Charing Cross Road. This is a McDonald’s with bouncers! It’s late. It’s packed, and we ask this couple if we can sit with them. Then the man starts insulting the girl I was with. I said, “All right, mate, calm down.” I though, “Kit Harington, this is the time to stand up for a woman’s honor.” I stood up. He stands up, and he’s about Nikolaj’s height. I threw the first punch. He went down. I couldn’t believe it. Then he got back up. The bouncers kicked the crap out of me. I had my face all smashed up. It hurt a lot.
Nikolaj: You’re never going to do this again, then?
Kit: Oh, yeah, I would.
