The Game of Thrones (GoT) drought is real with the hit fantasy show’s final season reportedly getting pushed back to as far as a 2019 release.
Just this week, Harington trended online after pulling off a scary April Fools’ Day Prank on former colleague Rose Leslie (Ygritte), who is now his wife-to-be after their characters shared a short-lived wildling romance during the fourth season of the show.
Jon Snow might be one of the most somber Westeros characters of all the time but Harington sure is a fun guy to watch outside the show. This isn’t the first time though that he won the internet. Check out some of this actor’s amusing antics below:
Jon Snow and the Stone of Truth
Back when we were all speculating about the Lord Commander’s fate after being murdered by his own men, Harington guested on The Jonathan Ross Show, where Jon Snow’s secrets were tested by the Stone of Truth. Was he able to stick to GoT’s code of silence? Let’s just say the stone gave out electric shocks much like during a lie detector test. The only difference was Ross controlled the intensity of the shocks based on the “quality” of Harington’s answers.
How to avoid a ticket the bastard way by Jon Snow
How far was Harington willing to go to avoid a ticket? Well, quite far if you’re a fan of GoT. During a guesting on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Harington revealed that he once told a lucky cop about Jon Snow’s fate so he won't be issued a ticket after he was flagged down for a speeding infraction.
Kit reenacts GoT audition
A few months ago, a segment from Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night talk show aired Harington’s hilarious recreation of his GoT audition. Here, we get to see him try out for the roles of Cersei, Arya, Daenerys, and even—wait, is that Harry Potter?!

We don’t really get to see Harington a lot outside GoT and his guestings so it’s refreshing to see him star in his own commercial featuring the Italian luxury fashion brand.
Dany and Jon react to their love scene
The end of GoT’s Season 7 literally went out with a bang after a steamy love scene was shown between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). It’s just a short clip, but here we’re treated to the utterly disgusted yet hilarious reactions of both Clarke and Harington to the incestuous development in their respective characters’ relationship.
