It looks like Jon Snow does know a thing or 2 after all. That’s cause Kit Harington has proposed to Rose Leslie and they’re officially engaged!
Harington and Leslie, who play onscreen lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte in HBO’s “Game of Thrones”, have been dating since 2012 but kept their relationship status a secret for 4 years.
After the real life sweethearts went public with their romance when they made red carpet debut as a couple at last year’s Olivier Awards, the Brit admitted that it was easy to fall in love with Leslie. He even shared that his favourite “Game of Thrones” scenes to shoot were in Iceland for season 2.
“Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” the 30-year-old handsome actor told L’Uomo Vogue before adding, “If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love.”
During a previous interview, Leslie also talked about her famous sex scenes with her popular costar. “Kit is a lovely and funny man, and a dear friend. We had known each other before we started working together on ‘Game of Thrones’. It was always such a privilege to be working opposite him and such a blessing that we get on in real life because it made our characters more believable,” she said.
“It was my first sex scene that I’ve ever done and it was weird. But I felt that it was important for the characters and the audience to get to see just how much they have fallen in love. We got to see them in their own little world, with no outside interests or power plays or nasty surprises. It was just two characters finally getting together,” the beautiful actress revealed.
We’re super stoked for the pair. Maybe we’ll hear wedding bells soon?
