Game of Thrones actors engaged after on-screen romance
Actor Kit Harrington, known for his role as Jon Snow in the television hit series Game of Thrones, is now engaged.
Snow engaged his co-actor who starred as a wildling and the first woman he had a sex scene with Ygritte, real name Rose Leslie.
The couple announced their engagement in their hometown newspaper of the Times in England.
The announcement 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.”
The relationship was an on-screen romance. Snow confessed in a past TV interview that he fell in love with a colleague on set in Iceland while shooting.
The couple recently bought their first home and moved in together before announcing the engagement.
Snow, who plays the Lord Commander, has become a darling of fans – to the extent when he was portrayed dead in season five, a police officer who stopped him for speeding told him he would let him go if he reveals whether he would be alive in season six.
On Twitter, GoT Kenyan fans had this to say about the Snow and Ygritte engagement.
You do know something, Jon Snow. https://t.co/rsxjZFmxV9
