If you’re a guy who ever happened to use a public restroom, you’ve experienced awkwardness at the urinals. Here’s how it usually goes: In the middle of relieving yourself at a urinal, another man approaches the stall beside you and does a double-take. He thinks he recognizes you.
Then if you’re Kit Harington, that person might ask if you’re Jon Snow. As it were, that’s exactly what Ed Sheeran did to Harrington when they first met in the restroom urinals, as Harington revealed on The Late Late Show With James Corden.
Corden asked the necessary follow-up of how Harington responded to Sheeran’s rather forward introduction. Harington replied, “I nearly said f*** off mate, but it was Ed Sheeran and so now we’re friends.”

James Corden is currently hosting the Late Late Show from London and had Sheeran on to perform an edition of Carpool Karaoke. Nicole Kidman also appeared on the show and grilled Harington on proposing to his girlfriend and Games of Thrones co-star Rose Leslie, as the couple recently moved in together.
“I just think it’s kind of nice if you’re going to live together maybe to at least get engaged,” Kidman said
Harington, visibly reddening, said, “I’ve been put on the spot by Nicole Kidman!” He quickly added. “I mean, it’s step by step, step by step.”
