From reel to real romance

Their love story may seem to be nothing out of the ordinary, playing the role of an on-screen couple in a hit TV series and falling in love. But what made their love story special is the fact that they fell in-love while playing their respective roles, and managed to keep the romance alive despite Leslie's character, Ygritte, being written off of "Game of Thrones".

Additionally, Kit Harington was also perennially linked to his "Game Of Thrones" co-star, Emilia Clarke.

The chemistry of Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington, on-screen, is quite impressive despite the fact that the latter is openly dating, and now engaged to, Rose Leslie.

The journey wasn't perfect

Now that it's only a matter of time before Kit Harington and Rose Leslie become Mr. & Mrs. Harington, it's worth noting that their relationship wasn't really smooth sailing and perfect. According to Popsugar, the couple split sometime in 2013 and only rekindled their relationship in 2016.

Their case is a classic example of the famous notion that love is sweeter the second time around. According to People, Rose Leslie shared that she and Harington actually knew each other even before they worked together in "Game Of Thrones." However, they only got the chance to spend time and get to know each other when they played the iconic roles of Jon Snow and Ygritte.
