KIT Harington gets "strangely emotional" on planes.

The 'Game of Thrones' star admits he cries at the "weirdest things" whilst on the transport including movies that aren't even sad.

He told W magazine: "I always cry at the weirdest things. I'll cry at completely non-weepy films on planes, though. I get strangely emotional on planes."

Whilst Kit uses a lot of planes, there is one method of transport he refuses to take - the bus - as he can't get used to seeing his face on the side of it.

He said: "I used to love to catch the bus, and I couldn't catch them for months during that, because of the fear that I might be sitting above my own head on the side of the bus. Occupational hazard, isn't it?"

And the buses also caused trouble for the 29-year-old actor when he was shooting city scenes for 'Spooks: The Greater Good' as they kept driving past the cameras.

He added: "It's funny to look back at it now, but at the time, they were a real pain in the ass! I was half naked on a bus the whole time we were shooting because of the 'Pompeii' poster. Every two seconds, we would have to call, 'Cut!' because there was some bus with the 'Pompeii' poster going across in the background. The first time, it was funny, but then after that, it just became really tedious."
