The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones isn’t slated to air until next year, and many fans are desperately trying to use every ounce of self-control they can muster to not look for spoilers. And apparently, Rose Leslie — a former star on Game of Thrones, who also happens to be engaged to Kit Harington, aka Jon Snow — is the best at doing this. Seriously, we’re so impressed.
As someone who shares the same home with the actor who plays such a pivotal character, you would think that Leslie has the inside scoop on all things Game of Thrones. But she recently revealed that she’s not interested in knowing any details ahead of time, and has even come up with a clever method to avoid finding out what happens next.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, she shared that she refuses to watch her soon-to-be-husband read Game of Thrones scripts.
It’s funny how even the rightful heir to the Iron Throne has trouble keeping a straight face after reading Game of Thrones scripts.
The show is notorious for blindsiding viewers (and apparently even actors) with outrageous story developments, after all. So yes, we completely understand why Rose chooses not to look at the love of her life when he’s memorizing his lines.
I guess it’s safe to say that the roles have been reversed, because now, it’s Ygritte who knows nothing.
