Kit Harington’s Prank On Rose Leslie So Brutal She Almost Left Him

Kit Harington revealed he pulled an April Fool’s prank on his fiance, Rose Leslie, and it was so brutal she threatened to leave him if he ever did it again.


The Game of Thrones actor, who plays Jon Snow in the hit HBO show, appeared on the Jonathan Ross Show over the weekend when a clip of the prank was played.

In the footage, a poor Rose is left utterly terrified when she opens up the fridge to discover what Kit had hidden among the groceries.

Check it out here:

What Kit had done to cause such a reaction was to leave a ‘severed head’ for his unsuspecting partner to find.

He said:

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.


Ross asked Kit if he and Rose, who have been dating on and off since 2012, were considering a Game of Thrones-style wedding, with costumes and all.
Kit replied: 

No. There is absolutely no chance of me convincing her of that.

The pair met while filming Game of Thrones, with Rose playing wildling Ygritte, with whom Jon Snow falls in love with, however, she was killed off in season four.

Kit also told Jonathan Ross how he ‘messed up’ his proposal to Rose.


He said:

I did have some plans to do it, I was going to string up some lights in some trees and do all the romantic stuff.

But we were in the country and we were under this beautiful night sky and had a log fire burning and red wine and I blew my load early.

Quickly apologising for the inappropriate wording, he explained to host Jonathan Ross he was meant to do it the day after with the lights.

He added:

What I meant to say was, I popped my question a bit early.

The Times

Kit proposed to Rose – who played Ygritte in Game of Thrones – in September, and their engagement was announced in The Times newspaper.

It read:

Mr K.C. Harington and Miss R.E. Leslie: The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire.

Recently, it was revealed Kit and Rose are in fact very distantly ‘related’ according to one fan’s bit of research.


Upon learning this news, one Twitter-user did a bit of digging – and I use this term loosely – she went on Wikipedia and found a little something.

Kit’s Wikipedia page states:

Through his paternal grandmother, Lavender Cecilia Denny, Harington’s eighth-great-grandfather was Charles II of England.

And Rose’s:

Her mother is Candida Mary Sibyl ‘Candy’ Leslie (née Weld) of Clan Fraser, maternal great-granddaughter of Simon Fraser, 13th Lord Lovat, and descendant of Charles II of England.

So Kit and Rose actually share a royal relative, Charles II of England – how very Game of Thrones of them… sort of.
