Rose Leslie airs side on Kit Harington spoiling ‘Game of Thrones’ finale
Kit Harington said he upset Rose Leslie after spoiling the ending of “Game of Thrones”, but the actress says her husband has some details wrong.
Leslie and Harington were discussing the end of season seven and not season eight, she clarified to Entertainment Weekly.
She said she has no clue about how the final season ends, and it may be because of how she reacted to spoilers in the previous season.
Leslie confirmed that she understandably got “a bit uppity” about hearing season seven’s finale, but laughed that he said they went three days without speaking, calling it an exaggeration.
“He happened to tell me that one of the dragons fall into the ice lake, and then we see the dragon being dragged out of the water and the dragon breathes fire — or ice, I can’t quite remember which one it is, I think it’s fire — onto The Wall, and then, of course, that’s when all the [Army of the Dead] can then cross over,” she said.
“So he told me about the dragon and I got rather livid with him, because I said, ‘You weren’t supposed to tell me everything! And that’s a huge piece of information!’ And he’s like, ‘Well, you asked!’ And I was like, ‘I know.’”
She admitted that she had some fault in what Harington chose to tell her, based on her instructions: “Tell me some things, but don’t tell me other things.”
Leslie refused season eight spoilers for good reason: “I want to be like the rest of the world and watch it in real time and get that build up and anticipation. I want to finally come to the final episode and truly – and I honestly mean this – truly not know which way it goes.”
The couple met while filming “Game of Thrones”, playing lovers from opposing camps. Leslie, who played Ygritte, was in the show for three seasons. It remains to be seen if Harington’s character, Jon Snow, will make it until the end.
