For "Game of Thrones" fans, the love story of the wildling Ygritte and the bastard of the North Jon Snow is unforgettable. With their forbidden love, they faced the harsh world that judged both of them. They found refuge in each other's lonely heart. One of the famous lines that fans often quoted was one line that Ygritte said on the show which was: "You know nothing, Jon Snow." The couple was last seen on screen back in season four of the fantasy series. Their last scene was with Jon holding the dying Ygritte in his arms and burning her remains on a pyre after she died. While Leslie only lasted until season four, Kit has played a major role in the series, appearing in all seven seasons.

The history of the couple

Kit and Leslie met on the set of the series when they were filming in Iceland way back in 2012. According to Kit Harington, it was not hard to love Leslie. He even shared with CNN that Iceland was a memorable place because it was where he fell in love under the northern lights, in a beautiful country. In early 2016, the couple confirmed that they were an item. The fans welcomed the news of the couple. Come May of this year, another revelation from Kit came when he appeared on the "The Late Late Show With James Corden," as he said they moved in together and were very happy. On September 27 this year, they announced their marriage in the Times newspaper. The announcement read: “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.”

Their present careers

Both of them received various roles after starring in the hit fantasy series "Game of Thrones." Kit Harrington will be seen in BBC's drama "Gunpowder." He is also filming for the eighth and final season of "Game of Thrones [VIDEO]," where he now continues to play as a Targaryen.

Rose Leslie on the hand is successfully playing as Gwen Dawson, a housemaid in the series "Downtown Abbey."

How the fans are reacting

Many "Game of Thrones" fans are ecstatic with the news. While weddings in the series are often bad ("The Red Wedding"), theirs is like a fairy tale come true for their supporters. Many people expressed their happiness with the recent announcement. Some Kit Harington fans, however, are not so happy with their crush getting taken away by Leslie. Some of them even claim to be heartbroken from the news about the engagement. Some of the tweets expressed that their ship is sailing and that they are happy it went on in real life.
