Last month, Kit Harington and his former Game of Thrones co-star Rose Leslie announced they were engaged after five years of dating, delighting fans of the HBO series who are desperately trying to fill the gap until season eight arrives. In fact, although it was a successful prank, it doesn't sound like he's converted Leslie to the joys of April Fool's in the slightest.
Meanwhile, husband-to-be Harrington has gushed about his future wife on The Jonathan Ross Show, explaining how he was so excited to propose that he popped the question a day earlier than he intended. He started by showing a video of Leslie's reaction: Completely unaware, she opens the fridge and looks around before suddenly starting to scream uncontrollably, run away, and fall on the floor.
The "something" in the fridge was later revealed to be an extremely realistic replica of Harington's severed head.
Rose Leslie arrived at Heathrow Airport looking cozy ahead of her weekend travels, but there was one accessory that couldn't be ignored: her engagement ring from Kit Harington. "And I was there going, 'April Fool's.' It didn't go down well".
"After that she was in tears", he said. "There is absolutely no chance of me convincing [Leslie] of that", he explained.
"She pretty much told me if I did it ever again, that'd be it", Harington said when asked if she plans to get him back.
