Kit Harington has had a lot of secrets to keep over the past year. But now, there is one less secret he has to keep tight-lipped about and that’s his real life romance with “Game of Thrones” co-star Rose Leslie.
After 4 years of on-again, off-again dating, the real life Jon Snow and Ygritte made their red carpet debut appearance as boyfriend and girlfriend at the Olivier Awards recently.
The lovely couple were inseparable the moment they arrived at The Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden. Harington, 29, kept it classic with his hair gelled back, and was seen wearing a black tux in typical Jon Snow fashion.
Leslie, 29, looked glamorous from head to toe in her Malene Oddershede Bach gold and black embroidered floor-length gown from the AW16 collection. Sweeping her hair up into a bun, the flame-haired Scottish beauty was easily one of the standouts of the night.
Unable to hide their delight, the pair were holding hands, laughing and gazing into each other’s eyes. At one point they even decided to share a quick kiss for the camera. The super private British couple have yet to publicly speak about their romance.
However, co-star Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on the HBO hit series, confirmed that the pair were indeed an item when she told Entertainment Tonight, saying, “My goodness! You know, we like to spread the love on our show. It’s a beautiful thing. She’s one of my best friends, so it’s good.”
She then went on to point out: “I mean, there are worse things than being caught kissing Jon Snow!”
Well said, Clarke! No one is definitely going to argue with that.
“Game of Thrones” S6 returns to HBO on 24th April.
