Good news, for once: The actual human embodiments of “Game of Thrones” characters Jon Snow and Ygritte are getting married IRL. Someone pop the inexpensive sparkling wine!
Five years after their onscreen romance — and a very delicate cave scene that we will never forget — a source confirms to People that Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are engaged. The joy I feel for them is unlike anything I’ve felt since rewatching “Aladdin” last Christmas.
Harington recently opened up about their boo-boo-ship — admitting that the early weeks of shooting the second season of “Thrones” were his favorite of the series. Because he fell in love!
“Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love,” he said in a cover story for L’Uomo Vogue. “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.” Aw.
I for one am still convinced love is dead. But if real life versions of Jon Snow and Ygritte can find love, perhaps there is hope in this garbage world.
