Kit Harington fell asleep at the Boom Boom Room while music blared

I’m not a partier or a clubgoer at this point. Even in my youth, I preferred a dank, quiet bar to a crazy club with blasting music. Loud, thumping music combined with alcohol gives me a massive headache. But for some people, that combination equals “sleep” apparently. According to Page Six, everyone’s sad-faced wee King of the North, Kit Harington, apparently zoned out and fell asleep in the middle of the Boom Boom Room. Huh.

It’s not all battles and babes for “Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington. The actor, who plays fan favorite Jon Snow, was spotted at NYC hot spot the Boom Boom Room, partying with a group of five pals.

But around 12:30 a.m., he was done. “Kit fell asleep at the club,” says a spy. “His head was rolled back on the banquet while his friends continued chatting. He slept through songs blaring by ABBA and Prince.”

But, “he wasn’t passed out from alcohol. He just seemed sleepy.”

[From Page Six]

At first I thought, “why is he so tired? He’s not working.” But he is working – he’s in New York filming The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, with director Xavier Dolan. It’s a pretty straight-forward drama, but I bet he’s working really long hours anyway. So why even go out to the club?? I don’t know. Maybe his friends were in town and he felt like he couldn’t say no to them. But how can people sleep through that kind of noise? That’s what I don’t understand. Am the only one who needs the white-noise of a fan AND ONLY THAT to fall asleep??

    Must’ve been a boring club.

    This. I am the same! I can sleep anywhere. Except on planes.

    • dholmas says:

      Same here.

    • Snazzy says:

      I usually fall asleep on the plane before takeoff. I am a disaster. I just love sleeping I guess :)

    • Kelly says:

      I was working two jobs once-one as a bartender in a club. Well it was my night off from there but we had Bret Michaels throwing his after party at our place and they asked me to come in just in case I was needed. I had been up since 6 AM and having been on a business trip for my other job had driven 300 miles to get back, so I was exhausted. I remember being up in the DJ booth, right under a speaker and when I woke up, out DJ and Bret Michaels were both laughing that I managed to fall asleep in pretty much the loudest part of the bar. If you’re that tired, you just can’t help it.

    You have a much more innocent heart than me. I’m pretty sure it was whatever combination of drugs he was on. There is a rare breed that will just doze off in a club solely from tiredness but I doubt that was it.

    • mom2two says:

      Cherise, I was thinking the same thing. I doubt he was sleeping because he was tired.

      My brother works long hours, and I’ve seen him fall asleep in clubs. Usually, it’s after 1-2 pints of beer, though… :)

    • ichsi says:

      I’ve fallen asleep in clubs too, it’s not that uncommon, but yeah, there usually is at least a high level of blood alcohol involved.

  4. astrid says:

    I’m of the opinion that when a person is really tired, they can fall asleep anywhere.

    • V4Real says:

      Drugs, it’s a powerful thing.
      But seriously I agree with you. When your body is tired and ready to shut down you can fall asleep anywhere, that’s why so many people fall asleep behind the wheel but don”t have any type of substance in their system.

      One of my friends fell asleep at an Aerosmith concert

    Where I come from this is called “passed out.”

  6. Nancy says:

    About a year or so ago, my husband and I went to see Star Wars in 3D and sat in the rocking, twirling chairs. I was having a blast and then hear snoring. I thought who tf could sleep through this. I look over and there is my man sound asleep! Baby, really? I told him people were spending a lot of money to see the film and didn’t need to listen to him. Lol. BTW, Jon Snow you know nothing.

  7. themummy says:

    I sometimes fall asleep at concerts or in movies. I don’t find it that hard to believe at all.

    I was looking at him and found myself wondering if he was shorter than I am (I’m 5’3″), so I looked it up. He’s 5’8″. Huh. Not as wee as I thought he was.

    • jetlagged says:

      No, he’s just as wee as you think he is. There’s an unwritten Hollywood rule which dictates that the internet shall add 2-4″ to an actor’s real-life height, more if he’s in the action/leading-man category. Exhibit A: Robert Downey Jr. Internet has him at 5’9″. I’d say 5’6″ is generous.

  8. nikzilla37 says:

    I’ve done this at a club in NYC too. It must be from sheer exhaustion. I had to go to a birthday party after being up for way too many hours. My husband was PISSED when he found me asleep on a lounge chair.

    Anyways, can’t believe i have something in common with Jon Snow! :-P

  9. bella says:

    I used to go to clubs and fall asleep too, as I was always working long hours and didn’t want to miss out. Also, movies have been a big nap fest for me!

  10. Jen says:

    Maybe alcohol doesn’t agree with him? I can’t really drink anything alcoholic because after two drinks I’m yawning and ready to go to bed! It’s ridiculous lol! I’ve also fell asleep in a club before!

  11. DesertReal says:

    Raves clubs, movies, rock concerts, plays (but never a symphony), and ballet (but never an opera). What can I say? If I’ve been working 12 hours on only 4 hours of sleep and a group of friends (or my dude) wants to go out…I’ll go out.
    There’s just no guarantee I’ll be awake the entire time lol

  12. Elektra says:

    Ehhh I could see it happening. Boom Boom Room is a lounge, not a club. They don’t blast music and it doesn’t get crowded. There are fireplaces and comfy seats and chill vibe. Could definitely see it happening.

  13. Vernie says:

    I fell asleep in an IMAX screening of “Stomp” once. I spent years convinced I have sleep apnea, but after two sleep studies, the conclusion is I’m just good at falling asleep in inappropriate settings.

  14. Ange says:

    I once fell asleep at a footy game with 60,000 screaming fans. My husband falls asleep at the movies ALL THE TIME. We both do struggle with tiredness though.

  15. Dawnie says:

    I’ve fallen asleep during a 45 min MRI scan and that was pretty loud. I think it has to do with the sound patterns. As long as they aren’t too erratic and have a consistent organization it can be comforting. Like the burble of people speaking.
