It’s wedding bells for costars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie of Game of Thrones fame. The two actors met and worked alongside each other on the set of Game of Thrones, one of television’s most buzzed about and watched shows. Multiple sources have confirmed the couple have gotten engaged while the official announcement was posted in The Times.
“The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire.”
The two have been dating since the summer of 2014 but attempted to keep their relationship under wraps. But television fans being as detail oriented and meticulous as they sometimes are, put the pieces together and the internet was buzzing about the rumored couple for quite some time.
Their characters were love interests on the show in earlier seasons and after dating for quite some time, they made their first official appearance at the Olivier Awards in April 2016. In an interview with Vogue Italia, Harington explained how the two fell in love while shooting the second season of the show in the gorgeous country of Iceland.
He calls that time in his life one of his best memories for professional and personal reasons. He talked about how amazing the Northern Lights were to experience in person and how lush and beautiful the country is as a whole.
Harington is also aware that the two of them playing love interests helped their own love story along quite a bit by saying when you get along with someone and are attracted to them and they play your love interest on a show, it’s incredibly easy to fall in love. The two have been living together and have decided to take that next step in their relationship.
When proximity is the number one factor in two people getting together, it makes sense that so many actors meet their significant other on set. It’s even more of a safe bet when they play love interests and have a natural chemistry.
Some of the most famous celebrity couples met that way. Congrats to the happy couple!
