Nicholas Hoult auditioned to play Jon Snow in Game Of Thrones but things did not go so well for him.

Nicholas, who was filming for 2010 flick Clash of the Titans when the audition took place, said: “I had long hair extensions.

“They gave me a ponytail and also a very patchy fake tan.”

“So I remember being like, ‘This is probably not what they’re hoping for’, and it obviously wasn’t.”

Nicholas recalled, “I auditioned for the pilot. I had no idea what Game of Thrones was.”
