Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has been keeping his co-star Emilia Clarke amused while on set in Northern Ireland by doing his best impression of a dragon.

The Daenerys Targaryen actress posted a video on to her Instagram account over the weekend showing Harington, who plays Jon Snow, channeling his inner dragon on what appears to be the Cliffs of Fairhead in Co Antrim.

The pair filmed a number of scenes from the beautiful surroundings on the north coast as their characters finally met in person during the current seventh season of the hit HBO fantasy series.

The hilarious video sees Harington flapping his famous Jon Snow cape in a bid to mimic a dragon, while Clarke can be heard laughing from behind the camera.

The actress posted the clip with the caption: "I mean, JEEEZE, one pet of a dragon and he thinks he's one of them. #youknownothingjonsnow #butyoudoknowhowtonotgetblownoffacliffingaleforsewindssotheresalwaysthat #everypunaboutwindicanthinkofinserthere"

 

The Cliffs of Fairhead have doubled as the epic surroundings of Dragonstone on screen, where Jon, Daenerys and Tyrion Lannister have assembled to plot their next move.

The area has now been added to the list of Game of Thrones filming locations which are publicly accessible across Northern Ireland.

Other Game of Thrones filming locations nearby include Larrybane, which became Renly Baratheon’s camp in the 'Stormlands.' It’s where Brienne of Tarth was granted her wish to be named to Renly’s Kingsguard.
