The on-screen romance between Jon Snow and Ygritte the wildling was a huge deal for a while and gave us the memorable line, “you know nothing, Jon Snow.”
Now, the people who brought those characters to life, Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, are getting married and the reaction across the internet has been overwhelmingly positive.
The pair met on-set five years ago and have kept their relationship very quiet. Of course, you can’t keep a secret forever nowadays and reports of their engagement spread like wildfire yesterday.
According to The Sun, a source has said: “They’re yet to set a date, but told friends and family last week that they’ve got engaged. ‘Kit’s known for ages he’s wanted to marry Rose but he wanted them to get a house and settle down a bit first. After moving in together in January he felt it was the right time to take the next step.”
The couple recently moved into a seven bedroom 15th century English countryside home in Britain’s East Anglia region, which has been exciting for the locals. A villager even told The Sun: “How thrilling – everyone is talking about the glamorous couple from the ‘Game of Thrones’ moving in.”
There’s no wedding date as of yet but it’s really pretty cool. Congratulations to Kit and Rose!
