After a huge amount of speculation, ‘Game of Thrones’ actors Kit Harington and Rose Leslie have finally confirmed that they are engaged!
Kit, who plays Jon Snow and Rose who plated character Ygritte in HBO’s epic GOT fantasy series have been dating for five years, following meeting on the set of the show in 2012 where they played each other’s love interests.
Whilst they have kept most of their relationship private and only made their public debut as a couple at last year’s Olivier Awards , Kit opened up to L’Uomo Vogue , showing his romantic side. Speaking to the publication, he said it was ‘easy’ to fall in love with Rose, saying:
“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”
He went on to say that his favourite memory of working on GOT was the three weeks that they filmed the second season in Iceland in 2012, “because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical and because it was there that I fell in love” –AWW!
Despite Rose leaving the show after two years, the couple have since gone from strength-to-strength, having recently moved in together into a £1.75 million mansion in East Anglia in the UK. Kit previously gushed to James Corden on his chat show earlier this year about moving in with rose, saying “I’ve moved in with my other best friend Rose, so I’m very happy”.
The couple opted for a traditional method to announce their engagement, by placing an as in the Times Newspaper! The announcement was published in the forthcoming marriages section of the daily newspaper, it read:
‘The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire.’
Congratulations to the happy couple!
