Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are making many shipper’s dreams come true, as the two announced they would be getting married in Scottland.
The two have been dating for a while now after meeting on the set of Game of Thrones, eventually even playing a couple on screen. Harrington’s Jon Snow and Leslie’s Wildling character Ygritte started off on opposite teams but eventually fell in love despite their differences. While their romance in the show was beloved by many, it was shortlived, ending in tragedy with Yigritte dying in Jon’s arms, telling him one last time “You know nothing Jon Snow.”
Even though Harington’s character may have moved on since then, being paired with Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen, and Ygritte’s death meant Leslie would depart the show, the two continued to date off-screen. It wasn’t long after that they announced their engagement to the Times in September of 2017.
In an interview with Vogue, Harington recounted falling in love with Leslie while filming in Iceland.
“The country is beautiful … the northern lights are magical … it was there that I fell in love,” he said. “If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love.”
The 31-year-old actor and actress will likely hold the ceremony in Leslie’s 12th-century family castle today, with the date of June 23 previously being posted at Huntly registration office in Aberdeenshire.
