Love in the air because two of our most favorite Games of Thrones (GoT) stars just got engaged. Kit Harington and Rose Leslie who play love interests on the TV series announced their engagement on Wednesday in Times of London newspaper.
Kit Harington played the role of Jon Snow and Rose Leslie played the role of Ygritte on the hit HBO series. She first appeared in the show’s second season and was last seen in the final episode of the fourth season. One of her most famous lines is “You know nothing, Jon Snow.”
Even though they’ve known each other since 2012, they didn’t confirm they were a couple until early 2016 and moved in together in June that year. The actors, both 30, are always seen giggling like teenagers in each other’s company. Both of them have always been very private about their relationship.
In 2012, Harington and Leslie were seen together on a dinner date, and fans started talking about their romance. Harington denied about being in a relationship with Leslie and said that it is all rumor and myth. They were very close back then but weren’t dating. The couple walked hand in hand at Olivier Awards in London in May 2016 announcing their relationship to the world.
In June 2016, Harington confirmed on The Late Late Show With James Corden that he had moved in with his other best friend (Rose Leslie). He appeared on the show with Nicole Kidman, who jokingly said, now that they were living together, at least get engaged. In the same month, Harington’s interview was published in Vogue Italia in which he said shooting in Iceland in 2016 for the second season is his best memory. The country is beautiful because of the magical Northern lights and that is where he fell in love with Leslie. If you like someone and you get to play their love interest on television, it is very easy to fall in love.
We can’t wait to catch on more details about their wedding. Do you think it will beGoT-themed?
