Game of Thrones can at times be a pretty gruesome television show. It appears that the ghastly aspects of the hit fantasy show rubbed off on Kit Harington. The actor who plays Jon Snow revealed that he played a rather macabre prank on his fiancé, actress Rose Leslie, who plays wildling Ygritte on GoT. Kit surprised Rose with an April Fool’s prank so shocking that she said if he ever did a stunt like it again that she would break up with him for good.
Kit recently appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show with actress Liv Tyler, who stars in the upcoming BBC One three-part historical drama with him. Harington told his story of terrorizing the shit out of his future wife and even shared a video of Leslie’s panicked reaction. Jon Snow left something of his in the refrigerator for his fiancé to find. It was his head. There was a replica of Kit’s head in the fridge. Being friends with Game of Thrones prosthetic artists does really come in handy on April Fool’s Day and Halloween. If you have a replica of your head, you’d be irresponsible if you did not use it in a magnificent prank such as this. Leslie was absolutely startled after seeing the head in the fridge next to the eggs and kombucha. Ned Stark would not find this prank funny. Leslie reacted by screaming in fear and collapsing on the floor.
The Game of Thrones star said, “It didn’t go down well.” “After that she was in tears,” Harington said. “She pretty much told me if I did it ever again that would be it – and I think that’s marriage included.” If you’re Jon Snow do you turn to Ygritte and say, “You know nothing wildling Ygritte.” While it was a tremendous prank, that was probably the only head that was given on that day.
Ross asked Kit if he and his future wife are planning a Game of Thrones-themed wedding. “There is absolutely no chance of me convincing her of that,” Kit replied. Yeah, not having a red wedding is probably a good call.
