The 28-year-old was embarrassed when his 2014 film 'Pompeii' was released in cinemas because the promotional posters were so hard to avoid, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"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?" Harington told Vulture magazine.
The buses also caused problems for Harington while he was shooting "Spooks: The Greater Good", as the movie was filmed in London and they kept driving past the outdoor scenes.
"It's funny to look back at it now, but at the time, they were a real pain in the a**!" he said.
"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," he said.
