Kit Harrington FINALLY opens up about his relationship with ‘Game Of Thrones’ co-star, Rose Leslie!
Well, Jon Snow CLEARLY knows something when it comes to the ladies! If you remember, during Game Of Thrones season 5, it was revealed that co-stars Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie apparently didn’t know how to keep work and play separate. While enacting their Game Of Thrones characters Jon Snow and Ygritte falling in love, they fell in love in real life. Ygritte was unfortunately killed off of the show in one of Game Of Thrones‘ most heartbreaking moments, but that did nothing to keep the real life pair apart.
Though, getting a peak at the happy couple has been a rare feat for fans, being Kit and Rose have fought to keep their fairy-tale pretty under wraps from the media. So, beyond stepping out together at an awards event last year, we didn’t even know if the pair were still an item, until now!
Kit Harrington has finally opened up about his romance with Rose Leslie, which stemmed from the Game of Thrones set. He revealed some juicy details to Vogue Italia recently about how exactly the wildling couple fell in love on set and if his beloved knew Jon Snow’s true fate on the show! Kit’s recollection of falling for Rose is seriously pretty romantic, almost as romantic as Jon Snow’s and Ygritte’s star-crossed love story! In fact, Harrington says falling for Rose in real life was easy:
“Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” he said, adding, “If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it’s becomes very easy to fall in love.”
Awwww! Ok, we know he kept it from the cast, BUT, was he honest with his girl about if Jon Snow was dead or alive?
“I told Mum and Dad straight away,” he said. “It’s Mum and Dad. No one else…well, my girlfriend knew. A few people knew quite quickly. They’re all very trusted people.”
Well, a relationship based on honesty, can’t get better than that! I’m still so sad over Jon Snow and Ygritte’s make believe fate, but it makes things much easier when they are happily together in real life . As for Jon Snow, he officially walked away from the Nights Watch in one of the most recent episodes of Game Of Thrones, which means he can officially (without guilt) have a girlfriend, so hey, anything can happen!
