The Game of Thrones star Kit Harington and his fiancé Rose Leslie are used to seeing gross things, considering they spent a considerable amount of time filming with White Walkers.
Most of those zombies are the result of special effects, most of them spend hours getting made into horrifying creatures that could scare even the hardest people.
But Rose to be any less scared of undead things. Her husband-to-be hilariously played a prank by hiding a fake severed head inside their fridge for April Fool’s Day and the result was absolutely classic.
Both of them appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show, Kit Harington said: “It turns out, now you’ve seen that, that she’s not a big, 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.”
Social media users thought it was a pretty decent April Fool’s joke, with one person saying: “You tease the one you love! That’s how it works. Though if my husband tried this with me I’d probably just have shrugged and gone ‘at least it’s not my head.'”
Recently, Kit and Rose announced their engagement in a very old school way, a notice in The Times, which 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.”
While filming the HBO series, they both met with each other. Rose played the wildling Ygritte, with whom Kit’s character Jon Snow falls in love with. However, in true Game of Thrones style, she was killed off in the second-to-last episode of season four, when youngster Olly shot her in the back.
However, once they announced their engagement, a person on Twitter discovered that they were actually distantly related. Kit’s Wikipedia page says: “Through his paternal grandmother, Lavender Cecilia Denny, Harington’s eighth-great-grandfather was Charles II of England.”
Meanwhile Rose’s has something very similar: “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.”
