Kit Harington Uses Gory Game of Thrones Prop To Prank Fiance
I tell you what: I bloody love a freaking awesome prank. I’ve told you in the past how I’ve played a few good ones on the missus (it helps that she’s a bit jumpy) but this one from Kit Harington, who plays everyone’s favourite King in the North, John Snow, on Game of Thrones is just mint.
Now, one of the best things about working on Game of Thrones must be the access to all the cool props, creature designers and make up. By the looks of this prank, Harington pulled out all the stops in order to create a surprise that was bound to deliver the biggest bloody scare possible.
Recently, Harington and real-life partner Rose Leslie (who played Ygritte in the show) were on the Jonathon Ross show and talked about the epic prank. They even showed it.
Let’s break it down:
Oh yeah, there’s Leslie getting into the refrigerator. She’s having a look on the shelf in the door, clearly not quite awake yet, but it’s never too early for a beer. Yeah, nah, f*** that, just some of that fancy filtered water sh** for rich pricks.
She must be feeling a bit peckish, wondering what’s for brekky, scans the main shelf and F*** YES!!! Got her! Look at that reaction, hear that squeal. She looks like she’s p****d her pants in fear as she just about launches the water jug onto the bench and then falls down into a sobbing mess.
Oh f***! It’s a pretty grim and realistic severed John Snow head. That’s macabre as f*** and just awesome. I want one.
Unfortunately for Harington though, it turns out that poor old Rose didn’t appreciate it. Here’s what he told Jonathon Ross:
“It turns out, now you’ve seen that, that she’s not a big [fan], like my family does April Fool’s, her family doesn’t do April Fool’s.”
“After that she was in tears. It didn’t go down well. She pretty much told me if I did it ever again that would be it – and I think that’s marriage included.”
F*****g top stuff that. Top stuff indeed.
