We Seriously Can’t Believe What Kit Harrington Kept from ‘Game of Thrones’

Okay, yes, you can make the obvious joke that clearly the BEST thing Jon Snow actor Kit Harrington took home from HBO’s Game of Thrones set is his former co-star and now wife, Rose Leslie (who played the Wildling Ygritte).  BUT–that isn’t the biggest thing he took home.

In a recent stop by to The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show, Harrington revealed what large item is currently hanging out in his garage:

“I kept that statue. You know, the one in the crypt. I kept it, they sent it to my house. So I’ve got it in my shed. How sad is that? I was the only one who kept their statue that’s how narcissistic I am.”

The statue he’s talking about is the not-so-true-to-life statues of three of the Stark children seen in the crypt of Winterfell in the recently released first teaser for Game of Thrones 8th and final season.

Sorry, we couldn’t resist.

He went on to joke that he has plans to make a water feature out of the statue.
