(SPOILER ALERT) Ygritte may have died on Game of Thrones but the actress who played her, Rose Leslie, is still laying all up in Jon Snow’s stinky bed of pelts. According to People, Kit Harington (AKA Klit Hairytongue) and Rose Leslie are engaged to be married, dooming them to forever being asked to act out the line “You know nothing Jon Snow” for the rest of their natural days. I had no idea these two were a thing in real life but apparently she’s been sheathing his Longclaw for some time.
Kit and Rose have been together for about 5 years. They reportedly took a “break” for a minute, but got back together and made their official red carpet couple debut at the Olivier Awards in 2016.
Kit may be hot but he’s about as bland as a bowl of instant oats. Rose, on the other hand, seems to have a bit of spark to her. I have seen her smile in pictures and it doesn’t look like she lost a bet. They both have had sweet things to say about each other over the years. According to People, Kit said the the weeks he spent filming with Rose in Iceland were his favorite of the series.
“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.”
Sweet, earnest Kit. I feel like he might be one of those dolls where you can cut the hair and pump the arm to make it grow back and all the extra hair is stored inside the head. The couple announced their engagement the old-fashioned way, with an announcement in their local edition of the Times in England (via Buzzfeed via @lizo_mzimba).
Just reading that announcement makes me want to take my breakfast (a microwaved egg sandwich) in my chauffeured Rolls Royce (an Uber) and ask my neighbor to pardon me before asking if they have any Grey Poupon, because it put me in a posh British mood.
