Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie to be parents again! The Jon Snow actor also comments on spin-off rumors
They met on the Game of Thrones set and married just as it ended. In 2021, the couple had their first child and now they are set to be parents again. Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, who played Jon Snow and Ygritte will soon welcome a new kid. Here’s what Harington revealed during an interview:
During The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Game of Thrones star and soon-to-be-a-dad again announced that his 2-yaer-old son is going to get a brother or sister. Kit Harington admitted to being terrified because the reality is coming at him faster than expected. He said:
“I’m terrified. With the first baby you’re like walking through clouds and dancing through fields of daisies for 9 months, well — the man is anyway. This time the reality check comes much shorter. You get practical real quick.”
As for his son, Harington explained that he doesn’t understand what it means just yet. The star said:
“We’re trying to get him ready for it, we point to Rose’s tummy and we say, ‘Mommy’s baby.’ And he points at his tummy and says, ‘My baby.'”
The star also answered questions about the rumored Jon Snow spin-off show that’s in development at HBO. He said that he can’t say a thing about it, but explained when he will be ready to do the Game of Thrones spin-off. The actor said:
“I can’t say anything on that, but I dunno, man. I walk down the street and I get recognized a little less nowadays, and it kind of hurts my ego, y’know? I’m pretty close to putting on some furs. I’ve got a tally in my head how few photos I get asked for in a day, and when it gets below a certain number I think I’ll do the spinoff.”
Kit Harington is probably playing coy here because the idea of a Jon Snow spin-off was proposed by him and he also brought along a potential showrunner and writer with him. Fans also expect Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen to make an appearance in the show.
We know that the current Game of Thrones prequel, “House of the Dragon” has made references to Jon Snow already. But it remains to be seen whether this happens or not.
