Kit Harington and his former “Game of Thrones” on-screen romantic partner, Rose Leslie, announced their engagement.
Rose Leslie and Kit Harington first stirred up relationship rumors in 2012, in sync with their fictional Game of Thrones counterparts; Jon Snow and Ygritte.
However, they did not make their relationship public until an appearance at the Olivier Awards last year in April. In May this year, Harington revealed they had moved in together.
“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,” Harington told L’Uomo Vogue in 2016.
The couple also took out a wedding announcement in their hometown newspaper of the Times in England, that 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.”
Scottish actor Leslie found fame as housemaid Gwen Dawson in Downton Abbey; while Londoner Harington continues his role as Snow in what will be the final and eighth season in 2018.
