Kit Harington is best known for playing Jon Snow on Game of Thrones.
Kit dated his Game of Thrones co-star Rose Leslie, who played his character’s love interest Ygritte. He has also been rumored to have romanced Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen — another love interest — on the hit HBO show. Kit stuck with Rose, though, and after moving in together, he proposed to her in 2017. “I was going to string up some lights in some trees and do all the romantic stuff but we were in the country and we were under this beautiful night sky and had a log fire burning and red wine and I blew my load early,” Kit said in an ITV interview. He and Rose are expected to tie the knot in June 2018.
