Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are officially getting married. The two actors met on the set of the HBO hit and began dating in 2012. The rumors of these two dating captured the hearts of their fans, who were ecstatic when the pair confirmed that they were dating in 2016 by appearing on the red carpet together at Britain’s Olivier Awards.
Harington and Leslie, both 30, met during filming of season 2, which filmed heavily in Iceland. During an interview with L’Uomo Vogue, Harington revealed that shooting in Iceland was his favorite of the series. He explained, “Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love. 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.”
The couple confirmed their engagement by taking out a wedding announcement in the Times in England. It read, “MR. K.C. HARINGTON AND MISS R.E. LESLIE. The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughters of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire.”
We can’t see wait the future has in store for these two love birds. Hopefully their future turns out better than that of Jon Snow and Ygritte.
