Jon Snow & Ginger Spice Hung Out & Quoted GoT, NBD
Being an actor may look easy, but it's definitely not. Nailing lines, especially with the right tone and emotion, takes a whole lot of skill and practice, as Geri Halliwell, aka Ginger Spice, learned over the weekend.
Halliwell was at Sunday's Italian Grand Prix in Monza, Italy, when she ran into none other than Game of Thrones' leading man, Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow in the hit HBO series. Obviously, that kind of star power in one place needed to be documented, so Halliwell decided to record a video for her Instagram of Harington trying to teach her how to correctly deliver one of the show's most iconic lines: "You know nothing, Jon Snow."
This is where Halliwell proved that there's so much more to acting than just reciting the right lines, because even though she tried saying the line several times, she wasn't nailing it — her rendition just wasn't believable, you know?
One time, she managed to say the line with just enough gravitas to get by, and Harington praised her, saying, "That's it! You've got the part."
But when she tried it again, it was clear she just got lucky that one time. "Now you've lost it again," Harington told her. Harington kept trying to coach her through, but it was clear that even though she'll always have a place in our hearts as Ginger Spice, there's no Ed Sheeran-style GoT cameo in her future.
Luckily, Rose Leslie, who delivered the line for real in GoT, was able to nail it every time. Sorry, Ginger Spice. Leslie definitely has you beat on this one.
