Kit Harington Winks Away Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Game Of Thrones’ Rumors

A detailed analysis of the Game Of Thrones Season 8 trailer

In a promo video for Kit Harington's upcoming turn as host for Saturday Night Live, the actor is unwittingly recruited by show star Leslie Jones (whose live-tweets of Game of Thrones have always been internet gold) to act out some of the HBO hit's most memorable scenes, whether he was in them or not.

"I hate it when people say it", Harington admitted to Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" Thursdayd night.

Neither Harington nor Fallon took the ruse to the heights reached earlier this week by Maisie Williams, who, while visiting Tonight, pretended to let slip that her character Arya Stark gets killed off in the second episode of the upcoming eighth and final season of Thrones.

You know the line. "He said 'But looking at the woman you're marrying, it shows you do know something Jon Snow.'" . So they just saw me dressed as my character from Game of Thrones. He bought a Jon Snow costume from a commonplace costume shop.

This time around, Fallon and Harington set up the gag with all the subtlety of a rampaging White Walker, belaboring a set-up that explained how Harington's inability to wink resulted in a facial tic that fell somewhere between a wink and a blink.

Even if you've never watched Game of Thrones, chances are you've heard the famous quote about Jon Snow knowing nothing.

Fun fact: Kit Harington can not wink and it makes the final part of this interview just a tad amusing.

A note to fans, Harington isn't particularly fond of having one of his character's lines yelled at him on the streets.

The actress starred as Jon Snow's love-interest, Ygritte, in the show until the wildling got killed off in season four.

Game of Thrones returns for its final season on Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
