Kit Harington FINALLY opens up about his relationship with his Game of Thrones co-star!
Well, Jon Snow CLEARLY knows something when it comes to the ladies! If you remember, during Game Of Thrones Season 5, it was revealed that co-stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie apparently didn't know how to keep work and play separate. While enacting the love scenes between their Game Of Thrones characters Jon Snow and Ygritte, the two fell in love in real life. Ygritte was unfortunately killed off in one of Game Of Thrones' most heartbreaking moments, but that did nothing to keep the twosome apart in the real world.
Getting a peek at the happy couple has been a rare treat for fans, seeing as Harington and Leslie have fought to keep their fairytale romance out of the spotlight. Beyond stepping out together at an awards event earlier this year, we didn't even know if the pair were still an item. Until now!
Harington has finally opened up about his romance with Leslie, which blossomed on the Game of Thrones set. He recently revealed some juicy details to Vogue Italia about how he fell in love with the wildling and whether his beloved knew Jon Snow's true fate. Harington's recollection of falling for Leslie is seriously romantic; almost as romantic as Jon and Ygritte's star-crossed love story. In fact, Harrington says falling for Leslie in real life was easy:
"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's becomes very easy to fall in love."
Awwww! So we know he kept it from the cast, but was he honest with his girl about the fate of Jon Snow?
"I told Mum and Dad straight away. It's Mum and Dad. No one else... well, my girlfriend knew. A few people knew quite quickly. They're all very trusted people."
A relationship based on honesty and openness — can't get much better than that. I'm still so sad over Jon and Ygritte's celluloid fate, but it makes things much easier when they are happily together in real life . As for Jon Snow, he officially walked away from the Night's Watch in one of the most recent episodes, which means he can officially (without guilt) have a girlfriend. So hey, love is no longer out of the question!
