D&G know timing. The same week as that questionably incestuous (and somewhat of a let-down) sex scene between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, Game Of Thrones actors Kit Harrington and Emilia Clarke star in the latest ad for the brand as attractive, Italian travellers nonetheless.

The commercial is to promote the new fragrance, The One, which features both Harrington and Clarke nonchalantly dancing somewhere in Italy where the chances of romantic dalliances are high. 

Harrington has since commented on the aforementioned scene noting his impending awkwardness. “I think they both know it’s wrong,” he said in a new behind-the-scenes special released by HBO. “I think they both know it’s going to cause problems. But it’s that thing, when you suddenly feel that deeply about someone and you go through those events together, it’s like a runaway train. You can’t stop it from happening.”

“For us, as actors, it’s just weird. The reality of what they are to each other, I don’t know how that’s going to … I think [gags] might be the reaction,” Clarke added.
