Kit Harington's Epic April Fools Prank On Rose Leslie

Published: / Featured Fandoms: Game of Thrones, Kit Harington, Rose Leslie

The North remembers ... when you pull off an April Fools Day prank this traumatizing.

As Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, Kit Harington enjoys a few perks.

  • Firstly, he met his wife-to-be Rose Leslie on the set when she played his Wildling lover Ygritte.
  • Secondly, he has access to a prop department.
  • Thirdly, he may well be resurrected when Rose kills him for this prank.

Kit tapped the second perk when he brought home a severed head in his likeness, quietly placing it on the top shelf of his refrigerator.

Rose, having no affinity for the hallowed April 1st tradition, had no idea the chilled nightmare that awaited amidst her breakfast fruits.

"My family does April Fools. Her family doesn't do April Fools."

And what did Rose see when she opened that door?

"After that, she was in tears, and I was there going, 'April Fools'. It didn't go down well."

Kit was quick to highlight Rose's tidy instincts in the face of morbid terror.

"Can I just point out how she saves the Brita filter? She dives across the room to save the Brita filter."

After seeing the disembodied head and hearing about how Kit bragged about the prank, host Jonathan Ross summed him up with three words.

"What a shit."

Not disputing the sentiment, Kit revealed Rose's response once she regained her composure.

"She pretty much told me, if I did it ever again, that would be it -- and I think that's marriage included."

She'll haunt ya for this, Jon Snow.
