Jon Snow has a "tiny pecker" because Kit Harington is too perfect say Game of Thrones showrunners

Game of Thrones fans, I hate to remind you of this, but Jon Snow has one teeny, tiny flaw: his penis. And according to showrunners David Benioff and Daniel Weiss, that's because actor Kit Harington is just too damn perfect.

"There has to be some downside to being Kit Harington, right? It seems only fair," the duo said in a recent interview with Esquire. "He's handsome, talented, smart, and so decent to the core that it's impossible not to like him. Maddening. The one thing we can do is saddle his character with a tiny pecker."

So if you think back to season 6 and the barb Tormund tossed Jon Snow's way when the fallen hero was resurrected - "I saw your pecker. What god would have a pecker that small?" - now you know why that line is there.

But hey, it's not the size of your sword, it's how you use it, right? And according to some intriguing fan theories for Game of Thrones season 7, Snow will be making some big moves in 2017. Speaking of GoT season 7, you saw the trailer, right? So good.
