#’We get new editions of the script every day and they noticed I was a bit of a vain narcissist so they sent me this version of the script where Jon gets set on fire and his whole face gets burnt off. They had things in there like he was permanently disfigured and horrific to look at.

Reblogging myself because I just came across this tidbit which makes this whole anecdote even more wonderful:
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau keeps being awesome and has played a prank on the GoT showrunners on Kit Harington’s behalf (who knew Jaime Lannister and Jon Snow could be friends?). According to WiC.net, “David & Dan email Nikolaj to tell him to keep his hair long, Nikolaj responds saying he wants to take the character in a different direction and sends them a picture of him with his head shaved. David & Dan freak out and immediately start looking for someone who can quickly make a wig to match Jaime’s hairstyle and find out it will cost around $10,000. Thankfully, before any money is wasted, Nikolaj calls to tell them it was all a joke. He says it is payback for a prank they played on Kit Harington when they told him he would suffer serious burns in ep 8 and that he would have to spend the rest of the series in heavy makeup.”
