Everyone’s favourite GOT couple, Kit Harington and Rose Leslie (aka Jon Snow and Ygritte) recently announced their engagement and fans of the series couldn’t be happier.

Harington appeared on Jonathan Ross last weekend to chat about his new BBC drama, Gunpowder, and inevitably the topics of Leslie and Game of Thrones popped up too.

The actor revealed the story behind an April Fools’ Day prank he played on his fiancée – which involved leaving the model of a head inside a fridge – which went pretty horrifically.

“My family does April Fools,” Kit told Jonathan, “Her family doesn’t do April Fools. She didn’t know the date and after that she was in tears. And I was there going, ‘April Fools!’ It didn’t go down well.

“It was far [from] the reaction I had hoped for. When my laughing died down, it took some making up… She pretty much told me if I did it ever again that would be it and I think that’s marriage included.”

Probably not planning any more pranks any time soon then?


Harington and fellow guest on the show, actress Liv Tyler, also revealed the very sweet stories behind their respective engagements.
