On Fallon’s 1,500th Episode, Kit Harington Shows Humiliating Dance That Entertains His Infant Son

Kit Harington wants everyone to know that prancing is coming.

The 34-year-old “Game of Thrones” alum visited “The Tonight Show” on Thursday, Aug. 12, where host Jimmy Fallon asked about milestones he’s experienced since welcoming his 6-month-old son with wife Rose Leslie.

After Fallon asked Harington what he does to make the baby laugh, the actor replied, “I’d do anything. Yeah, I think Rose is the one who he seems to respect and love, and she’s his safe place, and I just seem to be sheer entertainment. Do you know what I mean? And not even very good entertainment. Just entertainment.”

Harington explained that he’ll dance for his son, and when Fallon wanted to know if he can dance, Harington shared, “I used to be a good dancer, but I put him in his little chair, and he likes dancing to The Beatles. But he only likes it if I do these exaggerated moves. I’ve worked out where the ‘dad dance’ comes from.”

What Life Looked Like When “Game of Thrones” Premiered

After Fallon asked Harington to explain what these moves looked like, the star performed a reenactment involving plenty of high kicks, which Fallon thoroughly enjoyed. Harington then added, “But now I realize, I go back onto a dance floor, and I’ll dance like that but lost the old moves entirely. And then in the future, I know he’s going to mock me about it. And I’ll be like, ‘This is your fault.'”

It was also a significant night on the whole for Fallon, who was celebrating the 1,500th episode of “The Tonight Show.”

“I am so grateful to our Tonight Show family that works so hard every single night to put on the best show and to make me look good,” Fallon tweeted Thursday morning. “And thank you to everyone who watches. None of us would be here if it wasn’t for all of you.”

Last month, Harington expressed to Access Hollywood about parenting, “I think the thing that surprises me most about fatherhood is you are now a unit, the three of you. And that’s a whole new dynamic you need to find.”

Check out Harington’s moves in the below video, with the dancing starting at roughly the 4:16 mark.
