Rose Leslie Is Now Engaged To Kit Harington
That’s right Game of Thrones fans! The North’s favorite couple are now engaged to be married in real life. Leslie, who played the wildling Ygritte, was Jon Snow’s love interest, played by Kit Harington. The pair met initially on set when the popular HBO show began filming in 2011 for the show’s second season. The Internet exploded when a picture surfaced of the pair on a real life date in August of 2012.

By the time season 3 rolled around, we were treated to the pair’s steamy love scene in the cave. Years later, Harington admitted that it was during the time they spent together on set that he fell in love. However, it wasn’t until the spring of 2016 that the pair finally appeared in public as a couple.
Although Ygritte died in Jon’s arms in the season 4 episode “Watchers on the Wall” they’re relationship offscreen was just starting to blossom before our eyes. In 2016, Harington told L’Uomo Vogue that it became very easy to fall in love when you have an attraction to someone and then they play a love interest on the show. Looks like that’s exactly what happened.
And although it might be Jon + Daenerys right now, it’ll be Jon + Ygritte forever in our hearts.
The couple’s engagement was also spotted in a very traditional way – the newspaper!
