Rose Leslie, Kit Harington's doomed on-screen love interest turned , confirmed to Seth Meyers last night that she does not know anything about Game of Thrones' final season. In fact, she will kick Harington out of their London home before he even so much as silently reads a script in front of her.
"I remember over in the summer—summer just gone; obviously the [scripts for the] new episodes were coming through onto his iPad," Leslie said. "I mean, I can read his facial expressions. I don't want to know anything that's going on, like within his eyes or anything like that. So I sent him packing. I kind of like, boot him out so he can go to a coffee shop. Absolutely not [will I let him read scripts in front of me]. Because I'd be able to gauge. Like if he stiffens, then I know, 'Mm, someone's dead'. And then I'm like 'Nooo,' and my mind goes off and my imagination."
Harington is of Game of Thrones now in Europe while Leslie is promoting her new series, The Good Fight, last night in New York. Their engagement is "lovely," she told Meyers, but she still hasn't forgotten that last year. He put a fake severed head in the refrigerator, than recorded Leslie screaming and crying when she opened the door and found it.
She had the most innocent of intentions when she went down there, she told Meyers in her version of the story:
This is our refrigerator, back at home in London. And bearing in mind, I had just wrapped from season one of The Good Fight so I had been in New York for about six months. We hadn't spent a lot of time together. And then I go home and the bastard puts this in the fridge. Horrible, horrible. And look, he went to town. He went to town. He decorated it with blueberries. I fully screamed, oh I fully screamed. So basically, there was this whole big thing with the Brita filter. So I had ordered a Brita filter the day before, and I was very excited about its arrival. And I'd been on the internet looking at the different models, and I couldn't wait for filtered water and so kind of like went downstairs to the fridge, and I was getting ready to have my glass of water, first one of the day, and I was chatting to him over there. And I don't remember him holding up the phone because he took a video of the whole thing, and I thought he was like texting but still speaking to me and then as I turn my attention back to the fridge, I see this terrifying head staring back at me. And I don't necessarily recognize that it's him, but I just know that somebody is just bloodied in my fridge, hairy, and ugh god. Horrid, horrid!"
When asked whether Leslie has revenge planned, she wasn't committed to it. In her family, "we don't really do pranks in that way." Meyers conceded that yeah, Harington's prank was a big waste of time and money.
