Love is in the air for Jon Snow! Or should we say Kit Harington, who only has sweet things to say about girlfriend Rose Leslie. In fact, the hunky actor dished how he fell in love with his ‘Game of Thrones’ co-star in a new interview. Aw!
Kit Harington, 29, is so loved up with Rose Leslie, also 29. The actor who plays Jon Snow in Game of Thrones couldn’t wait to talk about his girlfriend and former co-star on the hit HBO show in an interview with Vogue Italia, and he even revealed that he fell in love with her on set! So sweet!
Talking about his favorite memory from filming season two in Iceland, Kit got all sentimental and cute on us about how he fell in love with Rose.
“Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” he told Vogue Italia, adding, “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.”
Both Kit and Rose had kept their romance on the down-low, but officially stepped out as a hot couple at the 2016 Olivier Awards, which took place at the Royal Opera House in London back in April. The two weren’t shy on flaunting their love, showing some major PDA while they posed for photographers.
Kit’s Jon Snow was brought back to life in the new season of Game of Thrones after a cliffhanger ending in the last episode of season 5 in which he was, as we horrifically couldn’t accept, killed off when he was betrayed by the Night’s Watch. But so is his trust in Leslie he told her of her character’s fate for the next series!
“I told Mum and Dad straight away,” he said. “It’s Mum and Dad. No one else…well, my girlfriend knew. A few people knew quite quickly. They’re all very trusted people,” Kit admitted during an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.
We think these two make the perfect couple, and it’s so great to hear how Rose stole Kit’s heart while they were working as an on-screen couple too!
